The Future
Thoroughly enjoyed this piece! 😄
Hey, my boss said to talk to you - I hear you know a lot about web apps?-Yeah, I’m more of a distributed systems guy now. I’m just back from ContainerCamp and Gluecon and I’m going to Dockercon next week. Really excited about the way the industry is moving - making everything simpler and more reliable. It’s the future!

Vulnerability Exploitation in Docker Container Environments
by +Anthony Bettini​, May 2016

According to Forrester, 53% of IT respondents say their biggest concern about containers is security.

Containerization is not only prevalent in browsers (Google Chrome), desktop applications (Adobe Reader X), and mobile operating systems (Apple iOS), but is also invading the data center via Docker. Docker and other LXC-based containerization solutions provide isolation via Linux control groups (cgroups).

However, containers can still be exploited and even with kernel-level isolation, critical data can be stolen.

In this presentation, the FlawCheck team will exploit real-world Docker implementations and show what can be done to mitigate the risk.

Nice talk by FlawCheck's +Anthony Bettini​

...developers of IoT applications are likely to turn to containers as a method to deploy lightweight amounts of code using a format that can support any number of device types and processors easily.

What Goes Down Better Come Up
a.k.a. Adventures in Hbase Diagnostics

"For +feedly, a cloud based company, being down for any period of time is soul-crushing never mind for a few mornings in a row. This led to a lot of frustration, late nights, and general questioning of the order of the universe. But with some persistence we managed to get through it and figure out the problem. We thought it may be some combination of instructive and interesting for others to hear, so we’re sharing the story." —by kireet, July 13, 2016
Earlier this year, the feedly cloud had a rough patch: API requests and feed updates started slowing down, eventually reaching the point where we experienced outages for a few days during our busiest time of the day (weekday mornings). For a...

Contract Photographer Remote

Calling interior photographers worldwide! Airbnb is currently looking for experienced freelance photographers for contract work around the world.

Airbnb commissions photography that captures each space in a natural way. We work with photographers that have experience working with natural light and preferably have a portfolio (online) of interior work to share. Those with a background in interior, architectural and neighborhood photography are strongly preferred. We will consider applicants with exceptional experience in other types of photography, provided the portfolio showcases professional skills in composition, lighting and technique.

Photographers are retained as independent contractors. Assignments cover a localized region and generally involve travel within a 30 mile radius of a photographer's location. As a freelance photographer, you are free to take on assignments from other companies, as long as they are not direct competitors. An ability to communicate (written and verbal) in English is required for communication with our team of editors.

We may not be able to respond to your application immediately, but will keep it on file until a need arises. Thank you for your patience!

Thinking Inside the Container — A Continuous Delivery Story
An awesome talk by +Maxfield Stewart​​ of Riot Games Inc at DockerCon 2016

Riot Games builds a lot of software. At the start of 2015 they were looking at 3000 build jobs over a hundred different applications and dozens of teams. They were handling nearly 750 jobs per hour and their build infrastructure needed to grow rapidly to meet demand. They needed to give teams total control of the “stack” used to build their applications and they needed a solution that enabled agile delivery to their players. On top of that, they needed a scalable system that would allow a team of four engineers to support over 250.

After as few explorations, they built an integrated Docker solution using Jenkins that accepts +Docker​​ images submitted as build environments by engineers around the company. Their “containerised” farm now creates over 10,000 containers a week and handles nearly 1000 jobs at a rate of about 100 jobs an hour. 

In this occasionally technical talk, they explore the decisions that led Riot to consider Docker, the evolutionary stages of their build infrastructure, and how the open source and in-house software they combined to achieve their goals at scale. You’ll come away with some best practises, plenty of lessons learned, and insight into some of the more unique aspects of their system (like automated testing of submitted build environments, or testing node.js apps in containers with Chromium and xvfb).

LOL! 😊

This is a +Google Cloud Platform's Storage service related question; specifically about Google Cloud Shell and inability to start it.

It worked fine for the past week.

But today, about 3 hours earlier onward, when I visit:

console.cloud.google.com/storage

...and click on Products & Services (the side-drawer menu, top left corner), and then choose Storage (under STORAGE services), and then click on Activate Google Cloud Shell, it says:

Connecting: Provisioning your Google Cloud Shell machine...

...and then the following message:

Service usage limits temporarily exceeded. Try connecting later. If you believe this is an error, please report via feedback. Close

Screenshot here: goo.gl/Vmeh3o

The message clearly says limits exceeded... But all I've been doing is:

gsutil -lhr gs://some-bucket/my-dir/** | tail -10

and

watch -n 25 'gsutil -lhr gs://some-bucket/my-dir/** | tail -10'

I let the watch command running (BTW: does this operation incur a cost?).

I am uploading about 205 GBs of podcast archives (MP3s) that I need to hold onto for my research. So far I've transferred 89.9 GBs of data using:

gsutil -m cp -r my-dir gs://some-bucket

...from my laptop (sadly, Win 10 Pro for the moment). I don't have access to a Linux box to get a simple, clean listing with human-readable file sizes and summary, the last few lines, tail -10 i.e. (to keep an eye on progress of uploads, nor does gsutil cp provide any).

Trying to do the same on my Windows laptop involves some trashy PowerShell BS which I have no inclination in spending time on! :(

But now I can't start a Google Cloud Shell, which indeed was a great convenience...

I checked billing and see this:

Cloud Storage Durable Reduced Availability Storage: 2.541 Gibibyte-months (Source:some-bucket), US$ 0.05 debited

and

Cloud Storage Class A Request: 13998 Counts (Source:some-bucket), US$ 0.14 debited.

That's fine with me, as I am OK to pay for the storage I use and the operations I make.

Any tips on why cloud shell access won't start and give that limit-exceeded message?

Thank you.

Cheers!

I have opinions on many things, and sometimes keep them to myself! But at other times I surprise myself posting topics that may be critical of commonly held beliefs! And here are a few words to all the Internet Philosophers, and then some to all the Internet Poets out there!
