Industry Introspection

Chillin' like Farnsworth

Every few days I like to sit down like an old academic professor and just read and ponder what’s going on in the computer hardware and software industries. As of late it’s been interesting to dive into whatever Elon Musk is working on also; electric cars, solar energy, rockets, or even boring machines. Another thing I’ve had a curiosity in and continue to find interesting is machine learning, or as some call it in the mainstream movie media artificial intelligence.

Thrashing Code Metal Monday for Week of February 13th, 2017

I’ve been getting a fair dose of New Orleans cajun grub lately so I went back to my roots and picked out a few bands from NOLA (That’s New Orleans, Lousiana FYI). Be prepared, NOLA Metal is a special level of sludgy heaviness and growl combined with some slightly psychodelic melodies thrown in.

The Dungeon

With that, enjoy your coding heavy monday metal!

Setting up a GCP Container Cluster - Part II

Google Compute & Container Engines together with Kubernetes

A couple of days I wrote up the experience around getting a Google Container Cluster up and running and adding a Terraform config to automate the process. Today my plan is to dig into getting containers into the Google Container Repository and then using those containers to launch various things within the Google Container Cluster. With my end goal being to get a setup for production use.
