Configuring WSL2 for Seamless Compatibility with Rancher Desktop

Just out of curiosity, I downloaded and sat up Rancher Desktop on my laptop. I daily use Docker and Docker compose on top of WSL2 using home made mechanism/tooling I would then see if Rancher Desktop fits well in this case and could help me. In this (very short) article, we’ll go over the necessary steps to configure WSL2 Ubuntu virtual machines and Docker with Rancher Desktop. If you want to get into Rancher Desktop in another way and discover how to install Skaffold, you can read this article.

Streamline Java Application Deployment: Pack, Ship, and Unlock Distributed Tracing with Elastic APM on Kubernetes

In my last article, I dug into Distributed Tracing and exposed how to enable it in Java applications. We didn’t see yet how to deploy an application on Kubernetes and get distributed tracing insights. Several strategies can be considered, but the main point is how to minimize the impact of deploying APM agents on the whole delivery process. In this article, I will expose how to ship APM agents for instrumenting Java applications deployed on top of Kubernetes through Docker containers.

Enhancing Asynchronous Transaction Monitoring: Implementing Distributed Tracing in Apache Camel Applications with OpenTelemetry

Picture Credit: Nick FEWINGS 1 IntroductionIn today’s dynamic landscape, Distributed Tracing has emerged as an indispensable practice. It helps to understand what is under the hood of distributed transactions, providing answers to pivotal questions: What comprises these diverse requests? What contextual information accompanies them? How extensive is their duration? Since the introduction of Google’s Dapper, a plethora of tracing solutions has flooded the scene. Among them, OpenTelemetry has risen as the frontrunner.

Moving on to Fish shell (and beyond)

While chatting with one of my WL colleague, I stumbled upon Fish shell. I immediately liked its autocompletion and extensibility mechanisms. After many years using BASH and ZSH, I therefore decided to move on to this new shell. Unlike the others, it’s not POSIX-compatible. Furthermore, to get (at least) the same functionalities as OhMyZsh, I chose to install StarShip. I will then describe how I moved on and updated my existing tools such as SdkMan.

Migrer un site Jekyll sur Hugo

Il y a deux ans déjà, j’ai migré mon site Wordpress sur un site statique hébergé sur Github Pages. Ce dernier était basé sur Ruby, Jekyll et Minimal mistakes. Bien que le projet Minimal Mistakes ne donnait plus trop de signes de vie, le rendu convenait. Cependant, j’étais bloqué sur différents points: La gestion d’articles en anglais et français Le thème dark (inutile donc indispensable) Quelques fonctionnalités manquantes: par ex. MermaidJS J’ai donc décidé de le migrer sur Hugo.
