Red Hat Developer Newsletter – December 2014
Last month, we shared a Thanksgiving “thank you” for open source. December holidays are commonly about giving, so Red Hat is giving you the opportunity to use containers with the new availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux® Atomic Beta.
This follows the Red Hat Summit 2014 announcement about application containers, including the upstream Project Atomic and our intent to develop a small footprint, container host based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The beta is available from Red Hat, Amazon Web Services, and Google Compute Platform. Read the entire announcement, see the Atomic Host Beta product page, or read the beta getting started docs.
If you have any questions or requests for topics, please reply to this email. Enjoy the articles, and happy coding.

“As promised last time, I’m going to cover some new capabilities that have just dropped in OpenShift v3. If you haven’t read part one of this series, you might want to go back and do so now so you’re familiar with the building blocks I’m going to be expanding on. Unlike last time, I’m not going to walk through all the deployment steps, however there are current step-by-step instructions for the sample application located here which demonstrates the features I’m going to talk about.” Read the entire article.
Mark gave the keynote at OpenSlava 2014. “Rather than talk about JBoss or Red Hat technologies/projects I decided to try something new and talk about how open source has impacted our lives over the past few decades. Most of us take this stuff for granted and I know that’s definitely the case for me: having lived through all of it and helped participate in some of it, I found pulling together the presentation both enjoyable and a reminder. I hope to get the opportunity to give the presentation again as I’ve already thought of a few other things I’d like to add to it and also get more audience participation.” Read the entire article.
“I have written a lot about Containing the Containers, e.g., Are Docker containers really secure? and Bringing new security features to Docker. However, what if you want to ship a container that needs to have access to the host system or other containers? Well, let’s talk about removing all the security! Safely?” Read the entire article.
