Technology Short Take 137

Welcome to Technology Short Take #137! I’ve got a wide range of topics for you this time around—eBPF, Falco, Snort, Kyverno, etcd, VMware Code Stream, and more. Hopefully one of these links will prove useful to you. Enjoy!

Networking

Servers/Hardware

  • I recently mentioned on Twitter that I was considering building out a new Linux PC to replace my aging Mac Pro (it’s a 2012 model, so going on 9 years old). Joe Utter shared with me his new lab build information, and now I’m sharing it with all of you. Sharing is caring, you know.

Security

Cloud Computing/Cloud Management

Operating Systems/Applications

  • Turns out that the apt-key command on Debian and Debian derivatives (like Ubuntu and its derivatives) has been deprecated. This article walks users through how to work with OpenPGP repository signing keys without the use of apt-key.
  • I recently watched this YouTube video series on tmux in order to get more familiar with this very popular tool. I can definitely see the value, but it’s going to take me some time to adjust my habits and workflows to take advantage of tmux.
  • Red Hat continues its effort to commodotize Docker’s position with developers: this time by taking aim at Docker Compose.

Storage

Virtualization

Career/Soft Skills

  • Lee Briggs shares a great post on learning to code with infrastructure as code (using infrastructure as code is something I think is a good career move for pretty much everyone). I like how Lee shares some very specific recommendations on how folks can get started.

while I’d love to keep going, I’d better wrap it up here. If you have any feedback for me, feel free to hit me on Twitter. I’d love to hear from you.
