Getting started with Linux Containers on Windows Server 2019

As some of you would have seen, I spent some time last week getting familiar with Linux Containers on Windows Server 2019, and I thought I would share what I did to get it all up and running.

Speaking at Microsoft Ignite

While sitting in LAX Airport with some time to kill I thought I’d reflect on the last week. I’ve spent the last week at the Microsoft Ignite conference in Atlanta, and what a crazy but fantastic week it has been. Starting with only finding out 2 weeks before the start of the conference that I was invited to speak, frantically trying to sort accommodation and flights, and finally ending with speaking at the conference itself.

Time for another Tech Blog

I’ve decided it’s time to get more active online, I’ve always been lurking in forums and posting on Reddit, but I want to give back more. For me, blogs are one of the biggest sources of information when looking at new technology. Whether it’s an honest review of a product or a deployment guide that highlights all the ‘gotchas’ that would otherwise catch out first timers. So I’m going to give it my best shot to write at least one useful post a week, sharing gotchas and other learnings that might help someone else out.
