Configure Docker for Windows under Parallels

I use OSX as my primary development machine but still at time run to Visual Studio for work stuff, new features I'm testing etc. The most recent reason is Visual Studio '15 Preview and the new Docker features that are quite awesome. I didn't want to fire up the ThinkPad, connect it to the big monitor etc; so it was time to get Docker working on Parallels. Come to find out it was a few simple configurations. Check the "Enable nested virtualization" option under Hardware / CPU & Memory - Advanced Settings of your Windows 10 VM. Another setting I might suggest is setting the Memory somewhere between 4 - 8 GB of RAM or Docker may not start. Shared Drives...

Legion of Heroes: haproxy, nginx, Angular 2, ASP.NET Core, Redis and Docker

I have been following the Angular 2 and ASP.NET Core stories pretty close over the past year, and of course not ignoring Docker. I wanted to take some time and see what it would be like to take all of these different technologies, put each of them in a Docker container, start up the entire application with docker-compose and then scale each layer. Be sure to checkout my Plurasight Play by Play w/ John Papa on ASP.NET Core on Any OS here. Angular 2 The Angular 2 Team has done a great job with their documentation and provided an awesome tutorial called Tour of Heroes developed by John Papa (@john_papa). I grabbed that code from the tutorial...


ASP.NET 5 : Continuous Integration with Travis-CI, Tutum, Docker, Webhooks and Azure

Getting a "code to deployment" workflow is a story many organizations want to have nailed down when looking into new technology stacks and architectures such as ASP.NET 5 and the container story like Docker. I hear from business leaders comments like; "...that's great, but how do we deploy this, scale it. What does the development pipeline look like?" Great questions. For my own projects I wanted to be able to "just write code" and have the rest of the process handled. Not have to worry about how does it get built, deployed, scaled etc. Here is a working sample technology stack using all the cool kids on the block and some old players too. Setting It All Up The...
