Last month, I have decided to seek opportunities outside Microsoft after 4 years and left
my job at the Azure Linux team. It was my first job after college.
I recently wrote on a log collector that used Docker’s Container Logs API
to subscribe output streams of containers. Most people don’t go this way,
because they use well known logging drivers so it’s hard to find any
programs consuming this API.
Last month, Azure Container Registry has gone to public preview. Finally
you can start uploading your container images to Azure! This fills an important
gap in the containerized application lifecycle in the Azure ecosystem. It is
also the first production service I participated in building and delivering at
Go language is getting increasingly popular when it comes to writing
microservices and commmand-line tools. It easily lets you compile a complicated
application into a single binary, it can cross-compile from any OS to any other
OS the Go compiler supports.
I have been craving to write about this since this is what I have been up to
lately at work. I spent quite some time investigating the state of instance
provisioning on each cloud provider and I thought I could share these here.
