Unlike many people think, containers are not new, they have been around for more than a decade, they however just became popular for a larger part of our ecosystem. Some people think containers will eventually take over.

Jenkins DSL and Heisenbugs

I`m working on getting even more moving parts automated, those who use Jenkins frequently probably also have Love - Hate relationship with it.

The love coming from the flexibility , stability and the power you get from it, the hate from it's UI. If you've ever had to create a new Jenkins job or even pipeline based on one that already existed you've gone trough the horror of click and paste errors , and you know where the hate breeds.

Docker and volumes hell

We're increasingly using Docker to build packages, a fresh chroot in which we prepare a number of packages, builds typically for ruby (rvm) , or python (virtualenv) or node stuf where the language ecosystem fails on us ... and fpm the whole tree as a working artifact.

An example of such a build is my work on packaging Dashing. https://github.com/KrisBuytaert/build-dashing

Chromium eid

During this time of the year in Belgium most people needs to fill in their taxes forms.
