Docker Day Today


Today is the first day of a new project that involves capturing, persisting and reporting on a lot of data. It needs to have very HA and be really quick so the weapons of choice are MongoDB and Node.js - basically the MEAN stack.

As it is a new project and new toys I plan to encourage the use of vagrant and docker. Both are new to the client and to be frank Docker is newish to me but I can see the benefits and have played with it. To that end I am ploughing through Using Docker.

[update] Looks like my first piece of work will be to implement a REST call to an existing python/flask webapp. This post seems to cover it quite well. Have decided to add this in a vagrant vm which has meant installing pip using sudo apt-get install -y python-pip and then following the instructions above.
