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.
Nearly two years ago I published my side project Docker.DotNet —an
open source C#/.NET client library for the Docker Remote API. Ever
since, many teams and critical products at Microsoft as well as outside
Microsoft started to depend on this library.
I am honored to having written a foreword for Jeff Nickoloff’s new book,
Docker in Action from Manning Publications. I made acquaintance with
Jeff through his marvelous blog posts on Docker and microservices. Make sure you
check out his book.
