How to install Red Hat CDK 3.4 on Fedora 28

Red Hat Container Development Kit (CDK) provides a single-node Red Hat OpenShift cluster designed to assist with containerized application development. This environment is like a production OpenShift environment, but it is designed to work on a single user’s computer. For this purpose, CDK runs Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform in a virtual machine.

Follow these steps to install CDK 3.4 on Fedora 28:

  1. Set up the virtualization environment.
  2. Install and configure CDK.
  3. Start CDK.

Introduction to Istio; It Makes a Mesh Of Things

One of the key metrics or performance indicator of a microservices software architecture and environment is lead time (the amount of time it takes to get from idea to production). Many things have an impact on lead time, such as decision-making time, how quickly the code can be implemented, testing, continuous integration, etc.

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.

First of all:

  1. It’s a Release Candidate and the features I’ll show you are marked as Tech Preview, so use them for testing purpose ONLY!
  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.
