Building Containerized Apps With Vagrant

Building apps that use docker as a means to deploy different services for the application is somewhat weird. You have to type in a lot of docker commands to get everything up and running. That is not all, on top of having to execute a lot of commands you also have to deal with a the rather long commands. There's quite a few things you can configure and you have to specify all that on the commandline.

In this post I will show you a tip that will save you a lot of time when you work a lot with docker containers.

Setting Up ZSH on Your Mac

A few years back I started using a Mac at home for general computing and editing my photographs. I didn't look back at my Windows computer. Windows 8 is sort of meh and the Mac hardware just works as opposed to my last PC that failed at least once every year.

Now that I've used my Mac for a few years I am discovering even more about it that's great. One of the things I've found that is also great about the Mac is that it has a unix shell. Unix shell implementations are the best around, no matter what you use on there. Windows took a very long time to catch up with Powershell. Even now I think bash and zsh are still the best around. Maybe not so much for their scripting languages which have a weird syntax, but more so because there's so much knowledge on the internet on how to use them.
