1. What did you do this past week?

    Last week, we were able to finish the first part of the project #2. We ended up using Google’s Container Engine to deploy the application using Docker and Kubernetes. This deployment process spawned an obsession for Kubernetes in me, and for the past couple of days I’ve setup a Hyper-V cluster running Ubuntu Server with more than 5 nodes, to test out Kubernetes. I was able to finish it last night, and I want to start experimenting with it over the next couple of weeks. Maybe eventually, I’ll have this blog deployed using Kubernetes. Granted, it will feel like this:

    But I think it will be a worthwhile learning experience.

  2. What’s in your way?

    A couple of tests are coming up this week, so it should be interesting seeing how this semester is going to start.

  3. What will you do next week?

    Experiment on my Kubernetes cluster, try to pass the tests, do some work, and maybe watch a movie or two.

  4. What’s my experience of the class?

    So far, my experience with this class has been good.

  5. What’s my pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?

    I read an interesting blog post about using Stackoverflow for rubber duck debugging. The gist of it is as follows:

    Once you’ve finished writing your question, read it through. Imagine you were coming to it fresh, with no context other than what’s on the screen. Does it make sense? Is it clear what’s being asked? Is it easy to read and understand? Are there any obvious areas you’d need to ask about before providing an answer?
