Azure Readiness starts here...

The best way to know the future, is to learn it

The weird case of the Visual Studio 2019 Dockerfile

Hey there, I’ve been doing quite a lot with Docker and the different Azure Container Services offerings like Azure Container Instance and Azure Kubernetes Services. As you probably know, the starting point of a containerized application is the Dockerfile. Look at this like an instruction script, which tells Docker what needs to happen, in order to grab the application source code, compile it and produce the container image. Besides the complexity of running containers by itself, I personally think writing a Dockerfile is equally difficult and complex.

Use Docker Edge to Deploy Azure Container Instance - ACI

Hey there, At the recent DockerCon (virtual) Conference, Docker announced a more tightened partnership with Microsoft, boosting the adoption and integration of Docker containers for Windows Server as well as Azure-running workloads. A first announcement involved a cool integration with Azure Container Instance (ACI), a low-level container runtime on Azure, allowing you to run a container without the typical complexity. While ACI has been around for 2 or more years already, it now becomes possible to manage and run your ACI-based containers directly from the Docker commandline.

How to delete a POD from Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS)

Hi again, In about every Azure training delivered the last few months, I am talking about Docker and Azure Kubernetes Services - AKS Along these months, the amount of “sample PODS” I am running within the Kubernetes cluster was continuously growing, resulting in a less efficient demo scenario to show. So cleaning up these running PODS was my 5 seconds action this Saturday morning. While not super hard, it actually took me a bit longer than 5 seconds (more like 10min :)), since I forgot a few “basics” on how Kubernetes is running PODS.

Migrating Docker Desktop to WSL2

Hey there, With the May update of Windows 10 (named Windows 2004 :) ) being available since this week, together with DockerCon virtual conference, I think it was the right time to (finally) migrate my current Docker Desktop in Hyper-V mode to the new WSL 2 (Windows Subsystem for Linux). In short, the process was smooth, straight forward, and not having any real impact on my “demo environment” I’m using continuously during my Azure training workshops and public speaking gigs.
