Docker and parallel builds

2016-07-09 1 min read technology CICD Ronny Trommer

I was listening to an interesting talk from Laura Frank from Codeship. In case you build or maintain a Continuous {Integration, Delivery} environment this definitely worth watching and they describe how they used LXC and now Docker to build their CI/CD infrastructure.


Interesting to me, the description in the YAML file reminded me quickly on a course I needed to pass during my study in parallel computing. The exam had one section where you had to describe parallel and sequential processes with some high level constructs.

I started in 1998 in IT-Services and I did all the funny stuff – was involved building new networks for companies, migrated software from commercial vendors from version A to B to C to D and I have wasted too much lifetime on broken RAID 5s, backups and restores. If you want to learn how to operate a computer network – this is a good place. You will be always called for the complicated problems nobody can solve with a simple Google search. Continue reading
