☁️ Becoming Cloud Native in 5 Stories, Faun new Blockchain Newsletter & More
In this letter, I am sharing five stories I wrote about the cloud-native ecosystem, including the best practices, the missing introduction to container and a Kubernetes workshop.
✍️ The Missing Introduction To Containerization
Let’s start with containers, you’re probably using this technology in your development and/or staging and production environments, but do you know how they evolved?
Docker is one of the most known containers platforms nowadays and it was released in 2013.
The use of isolation and containerization started before this date. Let’s go back to the year 1979 when we started using the Chroot Jail and see the most known containerization technologies that came after. This will help us understand new concepts not necessarily related to history but also to technology.
⏳ In The Missing Introduction To Containerization, you will discover how containers evolved.
✍️ The 15-point DevOps Checklist
With more than 1.2 claps, this story may interest you. It’s about DevOps.
This checklist is neither static nor unique, there is no manifesto that describes DevOps, but it should be adapted to the organization need, human interactions, and other specific criteria.
In other words, the checklist could help you proceed with setting up a DevOps culture but don’t consider it as a unique way to proceed with your organizational transformation.

✍️ The Road to Cloud Native
DevOps changed the way we develop, build, deploy, secure and monitor software, however, there is nothing as a magic wand that solves all of modern IT problems.
Also, there is no unique way to approach DevOps and implement it within an organization since it depends on many factors like the legacy, a burden for most medium and large companies.
It also depends on other factors like business strategy, business priorities, and culture.
This article describes the technical patterns of cloud-native applications.
✍️ A Gentle Introduction to Kubernetes
In this story, you’re going to use learn how to deploy Kubernetes services and Ambassador API gateway.
You’re going to examine the difference between Kubernetes proxies and service mesh like Istio.
You will see how to access the Kubernetes API and discover some security pitfalls when building Docker images and many interesting things.
Since Kubernetes is a star in the cloud-native ecosystem, you will enjoy reading this article.
👍 If you like this work consider giving a start to eon01/kubernetes-workshop repository, where you will find the code of the workshop.
