I’m finally beginning to delve into containers on Linux, after many years of assuming (since 2014) that containerization would be just another bygone, short-lived trend in IT history. This was such poor judgement on my part. I’m starting off with Podman outright.
I do wish introduction articles and other related content pertaining to containerization and orchestration (Kubernetes) were explained in plain English. I know I’ll eventually understand this particular technical jargon that some DevOps people have zealously published online thus far.
@stutteringsteve I stepped out of IT from 2013 to 2019 to do care work. I’m now pretty much full-time devops. I feel your pain: what the hell happened?! 😂
@stutteringsteve that was my thought too! “Pfft containers, VMs will still be champion” is still technically true. But running up a docker instance of something by just simply writing a text-file is just something eerily magical.
I’d recommend checking out Proxmox. That was my first introduction to containers a few years back. Now I use portainer for all my stuff and considering using… gasp… RancherOS 😂
