2020 books read

These were books given as gifts and those I wanted to read. It can be quite fun to read a book and discuss it with others. Note, I am someone who likes reading a variety of ideas, including those that contradict each other, as was the case in these books.

The Books

  • Beyond Sight by Gayle Sommerfeld
  • Competing Against Luck by Clayton Christenson, Taddy Hall, Karen Dillon, and David S. Duncan
  • The Age Of Surveillance Capitalism by Shoshana Zuboff
  • The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis
  • I Don't Have Enough Faith To Be An Athiest by Norman L. Geisler and Frank Turek
  • The Ruthless Elimination Of Hurry by John Mark Comer

k8s Uncommon CI and Automation Experiences

Kubernetes Uncommon CI And Automation Tooling Experiences

Kubernetes has a number of unique challenges, such as the high number of pull requests being merged to the main kubernetes repositories, which have necessaitated building custom tooling to handle these situations. Many projects of this size and scale have gone through the same process, such as Cloud Foundry which has released their tooling for others to use via Concourse.

Why it's important to capture uncommon tooling features and experiences

Developers who work on Kubernetes will often work on other projects in parallel. For example, they may have their own deployment tools, be building applications that run in Kubernetes, or have applications they work on for the companies they work for.

In addition to working on other projects in parallel, developers typically come from other software projects to start on Kubernetes. Few, if any, have ever started their software development journey on Kubernetes itself.

Large Projects on GitHub

This document attempts to capture some detail about large projects on GitHub. That includes looking at what tools they are using, what processes they use, and how much interaction they have.

This document is intended to provide a high level overview rather than dig into all of the details.


The projects that will be looked at are:

Hosted Chart Repository Requirements


Kubernetes Helm has the ability to work with remotely hosted Charts. While charts can be seen in the community provided charts, the charts themselves can be privately or separately hosted for an organization or individual.

There are currently 3 major ways to host your own chart repository:

  • Helm provides a means to generate a chart repository that can be hosted on a web server, object storage, or via a similar setup.
  • App Registry provides a system, similar to the handling of Docker images, to store charts. In this setup one can push or pull charts in a similar way to container images. There is a spec and Quay, the image hosting service, has implemented it. For Helm to interact with this API a plugin is required.
