FWIW: I'm not the author of the content presented here (which is an outline from Edmond Lau's book). I've just copy-pasted it from somewhere over the Internet, but I cannot remember what exactly the original source is. I was also not able to find the author's name, so I cannot give him/her the proper credits.

The mustache gotcha

When using “bound” objects in an .aurora file it is an absolute that you do not have spaces in the “mustaches”.

Examples:

  • Bad: {{ profile.my_var }}
  • Good: {{profile.my_var}}

Docker Container Snafus

When running a docker container, you must ensure that all of the dependent library for the thermos_executor.pex are present in the docker container itself. The thermos_executor runs in the container not the mesos slaves environment.

Make it real

Ideas are cheap. Make a prototype, sketch a CLI session, draw a wireframe. Discuss around concrete examples, not hand-waving abstractions. Don't say you did something, provide a URL that proves it.

Ship it

Nothing is real until it's being used by a real user. This doesn't mean you make a prototype in the morning and blog about it in the evening. It means you find one person you believe your product will help and try to get them to use it.
