The Return of Containers

After some delays, we finally had a technical meeting. It was a little shorter then usual, but it was an easing back into a more technical program. What did we talk about? Containers (surprise). Specifically using podman and containers. There were even slides. It was a bit short, but it illustrated using podman and a asciidoctor container to process the presentation with asciidoctor-revealjs. I also mentioned that there is a container that is used to build the website.

Design Thoughts

This site needs some minor tweaking and possibly a new theme. I’m not too concerned with the general look, but I want it to be clean and not busy. You should not want to stab your eyes out when looking at it or reading it. I am also considering going back through all of the content and retagging it so that it can be viewed by topic rather than the linear stream it currently is.

Interesting things that changed

As I review the site, I am seeing a few things that no longer work as they did in the past. I am not surprised though as the hugo engine has had a significant number of updates and the theme has been updated as well. Some configuration items are no longer valid, there are new ones to learn about, and the theme has had a number of revisions. One thing in particular is that if you visit the main page, you get a page on a jupyter talk from 2016 instead of a list of posts.

Current Status

It has been quite a while since there has been a post here. The last one being in 2019, a few months before the pandemic shut it all down for a while (assuming 3+ years is a “while”). We have been having virtual events for most of that time, but not publishing any information. I guess I was not in the mood to keep it updated, but I had to do some migration work this week, so it seems like a good time to get back to it.

More Docker

Continuing in the Docker vein, we built up a more complicated Docker configuration based on the previous meeting prep work. Success across the board and we completed earlier than expected. Time for other topics and future talk chat. We will continue with Docker for a bit, maybe even do a full day event. A couple of us also attended a local Rancher OS event downtown. It was a good event, the examples were easy to do and the tech resource for the talk really knew what he was talking about.
