Register today for the October 17th webinar featuring Jason McGee and Briana Frank.

Kubernetes, through its powerful declarative configurations model, enables high levels of automation in running container-based applications. DevOps teams create configuration files that tell Kubernetes exactly how to deploy and maintain an application in its container pods on a cluster

Allow us to demonstrate.

A series of five demos

To make it fun, we’ve programmed a fleet of drones to listen to Kubernetes and take action based on what happens to the app pods in a cluster.

In a series of five demos, you’ll see configuration files created and modified to deploy app pods, to scale and recover the pods, and to assign pods to worker nodes based on rules. You’ll also see how to configure an Istio service mesh to do canary testing of a new version of an app.

In each case, to visualize the results and timing of app config changes, drones will appropriately take-off, maneuver, hover, and land.

The history of the central processing unit (CPU)

10 min read - The central processing unit (CPU) is the computer’s brain. It handles the assignment and processing of tasks, in addition to functions that make a computer run. There’s no way to overstate the importance of the CPU to computing. Virtually all computer systems contain, at the least, some type of basic CPU. Regardless of whether they’re used in personal computers (PCs), laptops, tablets, smartphones or even in supercomputers whose output is so strong it must be measured in floating-point operations per…
