I could use the time “between the years” to educate myself in a topic that I wanted to understand for a longer time: Docker.
Last year, I bought a book about it, so I knew it is something about containers and portable, scalable software development tools, but as long as you haven’t really put your hands on it, you don’t really know what’s going on. Luckily, there is a very good tutorial, directly delivered by docker.com: https://docs.docker.com/get-started/ that I played through in the last days.
So the first thing I would like to dig deeper into are microservices.
As I am in touch with some common IT- and tech-magazines and -blogs, I stumbled over that topic again and again, but I never really understood what this hype was all about. Anyhow, it seems that you can’t get around microservices, so I’d like to collect what I figured out about microservices. ( I think one of the earliest famous articles was the one by Martin Fowler: click )
The problem which microservices want to adress is that quite often, the programs in enterprise IT-landscapes are put in one big application. Actually, I have also seen this or some aspects of it in one of the systems I worked with for a long time. Continue reading “microservices – motivation”→
(I will write some texts about tech topics and I will write them in English. First, that’s kind of common in the tech world and second, it’s easier to connect with people around the globe if the text is in English.)
Soon, I will change my job and work in a new role within SAP. I will support customers with the SAP Cloud Platform , SAP’s Platform-as-a-Service-offer. One of the most common reasons for using a PaaS is enabling a development environment that is easy to set up and supports you in deploying and running your applications afterwards.
That brings me back to the world of non-SAP-software-development where I have some roots due to my Java history, but I haven’t touched that world too much in the lost couple of years working as SAP-consultant: Continue reading “back in the free world”→
