It’s that time of the year where (most) everyone is back to school, learning, sharing (including colds—yuck), and tests. And the temperatures are cooler. Plus, it’s the time to meet up with friends and be part of the many clubs like sports, math, music, and more.
It’s not unlike the open source world. Except we do it year round. There are always new technologies to learn about, and source code to share—and don’t forget test. 🙂 But instead of cooler temperatures, we’re enjoying working with cooler technologies and communities.
Keep yearning and learning—there’s so much to know. Have you joined a new community lately? Or attended a meet-up? Be on the lookout for Red Hatters wherever you go.
Coming next month: coding and pumpkins. Stay tuned. 😉
If you have any questions or requests for topics, please reply to this email. Enjoy the articles, and happy coding.
“Containers introduce some intriguing usability, packaging, and deployment patterns. These new patterns offer the potential to effect massive improvements to the enterprise application development and operations specialties. Containers also offer the promise of bare metal performance while offering some amount of isolation as well. But can they deliver on that promise?”
“[T]he OpenShift development team announced a new public Origin repo containing initial commits for our third generation OpenShift platform.

This Origin community effort will drive the next major releases of OpenShift Online and OpenShift Enterprise 3.” Read the entire article.
