Earlier, I wrote about zero downtime docker deployment with Tutum. I have recently started experimenting with Amazon ECS (EC2 Container Service), which is Amazon’s offering for the orchestration of Docker containers (and thus a competitor to Tutum). I don’t have a lot of experience with ECS yet, but it looks pretty solid so far. I […]
Electronic Beats Magazine did a quick writeup on my MuzHack project. Nice that people are paying attention!
Amazon S3 is at the time of writing the premier file storage service, and as such an excellent choice for storing files from your Web application. What if I were to tell you these files never need to touch your application servers though? The thing to be aware of is that the S3 API allows […]
In this post I will detail how to achieve (almost) zero downtime deployment of Docker containers with the Tutum Docker hosting service. Tutum is a service that really simplifies deploying with Docker, and it even has special facilities for enabling zero downtime deployment, i.e. the Tutum team has a version of HAProxy that can switch […]
I am pleased to announce that MuzHack members are now able to inform of their availability for workshops, which to me goes hand in hand with publishing open music hardware, as it allows makers to connect with their audience (and vice versa). It should also allow for more efficient (and enjoyable) sharing of knowledge and […]
The Markdown editors in MuzHack are now sporting a help button, to display documentation about the supported Markdown syntax. Early user feedback suggested this was a much desired feature, as many users aren’t familiar with the Markdown syntax.
Stack Overflow and Markdown Stack Overflow is a familiar, and cherished, name to many a programmer these days. No wonder, as it is nothing short of an ingenious way of finding answers to the many problems you come across as you’re writing code. Myself I can’t remember the last time I consulted a book on […]
So I gave the first presentation ever on MuzHack today, at the Norwegian sound research centre Notam. Feedback was positive and I got lots of great leads on who I should connect with further, and elsewhere I might present, both nationally and internationally. Another presentation elsewhere in Norway might be in the works, later this […]
A core concept in Meteor is reactivity. Basically, this means that Meteor can re-run computational functions automatically whenever their (reactive) data sources change. Typically, this happens without your having to think about it, since you’re using an in-built reactive data source, such as database collections. A typical example of a function needing to react to […]
In my search for a comprehensive logging solution for MuzHack that works in a Dockerized environment, more specifically Tutum, I came across Papertrail. Papertrail is a fairly simple Web application for log aggregation, that receives log data over the Internet through the syslog protocol. As a registered user of Papertrail, you receive a syslog address […]
