Most of what I post these days, is very directly related to the “business” of software development – either code, concepts or just flat out business stuff with WatchMeCode and other related ventures. But I’m not all business, all the time. In fact, I keep a rather high level of play time in my life […]
Working with Docker is generally a good experience for me. I’ve got enough of the tools down, I know most of the command line parameters that I need, and I can look up what I don’t have memorized yet. But that doesn’t mean Docker is completely painless.
It’s been a few weeks since the pre-sale of the Docker Recipes for Node.js Development ebook ended, and I haven’t spoken about it much but that doesn’t mean it’s been dormant! Quite the opposite.

As of writing this on Wednesday evening, January 18th, I’ve sold 85 copies! I have to […]
On Monday, January 16th, the pre-sale for my Docker Recipes for Node.js Development ebook opens up. As I said in the last post, I need to sell 100 copies in the pre-order period, to ensure the book moves forward. But before the pre-sale starts, though, I wanted to give you a sneak peak at the […]

The Pre-sale Dates and Prices These are the details that you need to know, to take advantage of the significant discount that I’ll offer during the pre-sale, and be able to participate in […]
Last week I announced my intention to write a short ebook on solving specific problems with Node.js and Docker, called Docker Recipes for Node.js. I’ve had some time to plan, since then, and I want to share my thoughts on how the book might be organized, and the type of content that will go into it. […]
