    Ubuntu 20.04 was released today. I put it on an old desktop pc - simple. A couple years ago I spent many hours trying to get Android Studio running, no luck. This time it was a snap, just a couple of path changes to my keystore and I was able to reproduce an apk file and publish it to the PlayStore in EigenFrame Beta. I needed a backup dev machine - but what I got is a much better/faster dev machine. Nice!

    Oh sweet. I've become a fan of Ubuntu Server over the past year or so.
    I'll have to give Ubutnu 20.04 a whirl.

    Yeah, running apache servicemix/kafka, spark, hive, hbase, camel... on a machine grid. My download today was of course the desktop Ubuntu version.

    Has the freenode #koss been abandoned?

    Probably...? IRC isn't nearly as popular as others these days.
    This Gitter channel is new (since COVID19). Hasn't been super-busy yet.

    Hi all!! Don't forget that "Virtual Red Hat Summit" kicks off today with OpenShift Commons...

    Is it kosher to advertise for jobs in here?

    Hrrmmmmmm....
    @/all Just announced... Red Hat and IBM have partnered to create a web site, http://skillsbuild.org/, where people can re-train for a job in Technology - FOR FREE...
    If you know someone who is interested in a career change, please share!
    To give you an idea, the Red Hat content is sufficient to train to attain the Red Hat Certified Engineer level.

    I've added many new features to the opensource EigenFrame GitHub repository (Prolog inference engine).
    Interest in demo?

    Sure!
    We have a KYOSS meeting this week, right?

    Hey @jsquyres I just got a recruiter email for an MPI gig in Maryland. Know anyone who's looking?

    Cool! I don't know anyone who is looking offhand, though. What's the opprotunity?

    FYI, Red Hat now has a VERY active Twitch channel where you can stream information/training around Kubernetes and Cloud Native. If you join the LIVE sessions, you can ask questions of the engineers who work on the platforms. twitch.tv/redhatopenshift

    great stuff. I love Ansible. I use it to set up my Kubernetes clusters everywhere I work. this'll break Deven's heart, because it's not Openshift (yet?), it's kubespray... but it's easy enough for me now, after it took me a year or two to get used to.
    Deven Phillips
    @InfoSec812
    I'm not a zealot @ftab. Use what works for you. One thing that DOES break my heart is that Red Hat is not great at helping Small/Medium businesses with our products, so many smaller shows may use Red Hat Enterprise Linux, but nothing else because many of the products we support require consulting assistance to get up and running. Our consulting is NOT cheap, and that makes us out of reach to a lot of customers. :(

    A few questions for the KyOSS group. I'm in the process of learning more about containers and I'm starting to feel comfortable tinkering with docker. Here are the questions that I have.
    1. Is docker the best tool to learn starting out?
    2. Which orchestration tools should I learn, beyond docker and docker-compose for deploying the containers? Furthermore, which should I avoid?
    3. What is the ideal distribution for running your containers? Currently I have an RPi running Hyriot and an Ubuntu 20.04 VM on a VMWare host. Considering Debian rather than Ubuntu but looking for other recommendations as well.
    4. Is a dockerswarm or kubernetes cluster necessary if I only have a single VM host to run my containers on? I plan on building out one or both to learn the ins and outs but for containers I want to rely on, would it be best to run it on a single stable VM or across the swarm/cluster if all on single underlying hardware?

    I know I'll have more but wanted to get feedback from the group as I know this has probably been a topic of discussion many times over the last few years.

    Lastly for the next meetup, would someone be willing to discuss the ramification of Kubernetes dropping docker support in the future? What will be supporting in its place? I've drug my feet on this and now trying to get up to speed so any input is appreciated.

    @ftab

    I have no experience with swarm or compose, but I have used Docker for a while, and I can say that Kubernetes helps me even on a single node cluster.

    The ecosystem built around it has automated and abstracted out a lot of things I used to have to piece together and manually do myself. Automating the SSL cert process, DNS updating with DDoS protection & CDN providers like Cloudflare, creating storage replicated across the cluster where possible, setting up databases and web apps in one step that used to each have their own way to install, and it was a pain to get more than one of them running on the same server, etc.

    It may be a lot of overhead for a getting started test / dev environment, and has a bit of a learning curve, but that learning of how to deploy an app on even a single node can pretty seamlessly scale and translate to a production environment with many nodes.

    I'm partial to Debian and its descendants, but I hear good things about CoreOS / Container Linux / now Fedora CoreOS? (Maybe getting that wrong) I've just used Debian for many years and I'm familiar with how to tinker with it when things go wrong

    As I understand it, the upcoming removal of Docker from Kubernetes does not mean that it won't still run containers built with Docker. Docker will still be useful for developing apps that run on Kubernetes. I could be wrong.

    @jsquyres
    @InfoSec812 Per the K8s/Docker question above: you wanna talk about that at the upcoming KYOSS meeting?
    Deven Phillips
    @InfoSec812
    @jsquyres Sorry for the slow response. I don't check Gitter very often (though I should!). We can certainly discuss the removal of Docker Engine from K8S if people are interested.
    It's not that interested in the grand scheme of things because it really has almost no impact on anyone except those installing/configuring Kubernetes. Developers who use docker or publish containers or whatever, have no need to change anything.

    Thanks for all the feedback on my question above about Docker. Sorry I missed the meeting last week as well as my lack of response to your responses. I'm making decent strides with Docker, Kubernetes, and some of the other technologies around containerization.
    I think that is a pretty smart move on RedHat's part.
