Steps to replace nip.io with xip.io in CDK/Minishift

If you’re a Red Hat Container Development Kit (CDK) or upstream Minishift user, you would have been affected by the unavailability of nip.io. When you create a route for an application running in OpenShift (provided by Minishift) it uses nip.io for routing to the Minishift VM IP address. As a result, it is impossible to access the route created with nip.io suffix.

OpenShift 3.6 – Release Candidate (A Hands-On)

Hi, Everybody!

Today I want to introduce you to some features of OpenShift 3.6 while giving you the chance to have a hands-on experience with the Release Candidate.

  2. We cannot use Minishift just because there is no Minishift updated yet. Anyway, I’ll show how could use its base iso-image.
  3. I don’t want to use ‘oc cluster up’ in a virtual machine just because setting up a virtual machine, to run it, would be a waste of time.

Five OpenShift Development Environments in Five Minutes

It’s been over a month since I spoke at the Red Hat Summit in Boston and now that the dust has settled, I thought you might be interested in reading a brief summary of my Lightning Talk on Five OpenShift Development Environments in Five Minutes.

In the presentation, I spoke about five different ways that you can create an OpenShift development environment within minutes. This included oc cluster up, Vagrant All in One Box, Minishift, a Fabric8 technology, and the Red Hat Development Suite. My goal through the presentation was to get developers up and working with OpenShift very quickly.
