Hackpad October 2020
Browsers have become powerful beasts. First used to share research papers at CERN, the browser can now run Google Earth, play Unity 3D games, and even design buildings in AutoCAD.
With this kind of power, could a browser compile and run your code too? Ridiculous. Surely that couldn’t work…
Then again, why not? There’s no way I could ignore such a fascinating challenge. After four months of punching the keys and poring over documentation, I’ve finally created my answer: Hackpad.
Noonian September 2014 – January 2019
Noonian is a research tool for finding the laptop that fits your needs. You can search for laptops and then run comparisons to narrow down your choices quickly. Check it out at noonian.com.
Later on, the plan is to open this up to comparing builds of different computers and their components. With Noonian, I aim to avoid the negative tendencies and shortcomings typically associated with product search by making it easier to shop smarter.
User experience, CLIs, and breaking the world September 3, 2019
Starting at the end of last year, we put a plan in motion to revamp the CLI for the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service. We focused on improving the user experience and overhauling the code. The key is to break compatibility, but surprise no one.
Learn how to craft a better CLI experience for customers and developers. Continue reading on Medium.

Setting up an ingress March 29, 2019
Web services running on the same network can be difficult to set up correctly, especially if you want all of them to work on an external network. In this tutorial, I will guide you through setting up a Docker Swarm to route traffic to the appropriate containers, automatically.
There are three parts to get your cloud ready for web services: a load balancer to spread connections to available servers, an ingress router to direct traffic to containers, and DNS to point local traffic to the right IP addresses. See the above diagram for a quick layout.read more
Shared volumes in Docker March 24, 2019
Scaling an application is hard, especially when you need to manage its important data yourself. One way to make this easier is by sharing the files across multiple servers – no matter where it runs, the data will always be available.
An important step in making highly available applications is setting up highly available data. With Docker, we will set up shared files with a volume plugin called Convoy.
In this tutorial I assume you already have 2 or more nodes in a Docker Swarm and an NFS v3 server set up. If you haven’t set up a Docker Swarm yet, get at least 2 nodes ready by following these tutorials for Docker setup and Swarm setup.read more
