ContainerDays Boston, a tech (un)conference about OS virtualization,
containers and dynamic infra (Docker, Mesos, Kubernetes, frameworks
built on top of them etc.) that a group of community members is putting
together at the Microsoft NERD in Cambridge on June 5-6th.

The programme is a two-day mix of talks, OpenSpaces sessions and
workshops from users, contributors and extenders. We're trying to
provide a community forum to share experiences and promote discussions
beyond "how do I do X with tool Y"
to touch on what it's like running
Docker, Mesos, etc. in production at scale, what the technical story is
behind containers, which application architectures are best suited to
these technologies, where the experts see this area going etc.

What we learned from Container Days Austin [1] is the topics discussed
there were very much of interest to cloud developers, and based on what
we've been able to put together for this event I'd hope things are
similar here on the East Coast. ...(Read whole news on source site)

Dude, you can't solve all the problems by yourself

I think that the gist of this post should be pretty clear. Unfortunately I've fallen in that same trap myself many times. So often, I had to refrain myself from pulling somebody's keyboard from under their hands, just because I thought I could fix the problem at hand myself much faster. But with the risk of sounding arrogant, quite often I can. And sometimes, when the circumstances demand, I do. But in almost every occasion I did, a bit of patience would have increased the chance that the involved colleague could have solved the problems themselves or even propose a
better solution. And isn't that a much better approach for scaling development projects? So assuming you recognize this kind of (mis-)behavior, here are a few more good reasons for keeping your patience.
People might second guess your solution, potentially identifying a flawed design more quickly. Similarly, by clearly explaining your solution or approach, you might surface new insights yourself (a.k.a. the cardboard programmer). At the same time, you might get more buy-in from your team.
It increases trust and...(Read whole news on source site)

Setting up Github with Visual Studio Code on OSX

Introduction Visual Studio Code has built in Git support, but very few know how to use it on OSX with GitHub. Even in the official docs, there is only a few paragraphs on it. In this post, I’ll show you how I set it up. Adding your project to GitHub Switch to your project and hit the source control button as shown below. The first thing you will see is that your workspace isn’t under git source control. Press the “Initialize Git Repository” button and include a commit message (1) and finally hit the check mark at the top (2).
Your Project is Under Git Source Control, now What? If you navigate back to your project, then you will see a new folder called “.git” and a config file that contains the following :
[core] repositoryformatversion = 0 filemode = true bare = false logallrefupdates = true ignorecase = true precomposeunicode = true
Here is a screenshot of my project : This is typically the part where you begin a Google Search because you can’t figure out how to get the drop down to populate to push your source to a remote server. Time to Fix it! Open and create a Repo. Copy the path to the...(Read whole news on source site)
