This was the year I took some time out to rebuild this site. As is typical for the personal projects we take on it featured large amounts of scope creep, a non-existant deadline and too many new technologies to learn.
One of things I’ve been playing with of late is a Docker container orchestration system called Rancher. I’ve been very excited to discover the features and capabilities the developers have created and despite being quite new it’s extremely well polished - for the most part it just works. One of the projects they’d developed alongside their software is an operating system called RancherOS. It’s a light weight linux installation that runs it’s userspace entirely from within containers; the init process is docker itself.
