How to communicate with your Python program running inside a Docker Container, using Linux Signals
Hope you’ll have fun reading this article:
I migrated my last services from Amazon and the blog to Google Compute Engine (GCE / GCP)
Updates to articles
I updated the article about Python weird things that you may not know adding the Ellipsis …
I’ve been working in some Cassandra examples. I may publish an article soon about using it from Python and Docker.
Updates to My Books
I updated my Python and Docker books.
I’m currently writing a book about using Amazon AWS Python SDK (boto3).
Updates to Open Source projects
I have updated ctop, fixed two bugs and increased Code Coverage.
I made a new tag and released the last Stable Version:
On top of my local Unit Testing, I have Jenkins checking that I don’t commit anything that breaks the Tests.
Some time ago I wrote some articles about how you can setup jenkins in a Docker Container.
I’ve donated to Wikipedia.
Only 2% of the viewers donate, so I answered the call every time it was made.
This is my 5th donation to Wikimedia.
I consider that Freedom is very important.
I bought these new books
One of my secrets to be on top is that I’m always studying.
I study all the time, at work and in my free time.
I use Linux Academy and I buy books in paper. I don’t connect with reading in tablets. I think information is stored better when read in paper. I use also a marker and pointers to keep a direct access to the most interesting points on the books.
And I study all kind of themes. Obviously I know a lot of Web Scraping, but there is always room for learning more. And whatever new I learn helps me to be better with my students and more clear writing my books.
I’ve never been a Front End, but I’ve been able to fix bugs in the Front End engines from the companies I worked for, like Privalia. I was passed a bug that prevented the Internet Explorer users to buy just one hour before we launching a massive campaign. I debugged and I found a variable named “value” so the html looked like
It seems that Amazon.co.uk works well again for Ireland. My two last orders arrived on time and I had no problems of border taxes apparently.
Nice Python article
I enjoyed a lot this article, cause explains part of what I did with my student and friend Albert, in a project that analyzes the access logs from Apache for patterns of attempts of exploits, then feeds a database, and then blocks those offender Ip Addresses in the Firewall.
The article only covers the part of Pandas, of reading the access.log file and working with it, but is a very well redacted article:
Nice Virtual Volumes article from VMware
I prefer Open Source, but there are very good commercial products too.
I liked this article about Virtual Volumes from VMWare:
Understanding Virtual Volumes (vVols) in VMware vSphere 6.7/7.0 (2113013)
Thanks Blizzard (again)
There is a very nice initiative where we can nominate 4 colleagues a year, that we think that deserve a recognition.
My colleagues voted for me, so I received a gift voucher that I can spend in Ireland stores like Ikea, Pc World, Argos, Adidas, App Store & iTunes…
So thanks a million buds. :)
