How to enable Windows Containers

Microsoft support for Windows containers started with Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 Anniversary edition.

Windows supports two types of containers Native and Hyper-V. They differ in the isolation provided by the Operation System.

The native containers are treated as any other process by the operation system. Hyper-V containers are run under a light weight Virtual Machine. This enables an additional layer of isolation for the containers. The container image format is the same for both type of containers. It is only the run time isolation that is different.

Windows 10 supports only Hyper-V containers. Due to this when we want to build and run containers on Windows we need to enable the following features.

a. Containers

b. Hyper-V

The following images depicts how these features can be enabled from the Windows feature installation UI.

After enabling these features you need to restart the machine.

Awesome course on blogging to increase your market value

I have been writing blogs on and off since 2004. My first blog also won me a prize. My intention behind starting a blog was to share my experiences as software professional. I used to hear about how people used to make tons of money through theirs blogs. I used to wonder how this is possible.

Few of my friends suggested that writing quality posts can get you some rewards. Some of them have even got Microsoft MVP awards. Their blogs have helped them in showing their skills.

I was looking for some guidance on having an effective blog that can reach a large audience.

Recently I received an email about the skills that a software developer needs to a have these days to survive in the ever changing IT changing industry. When I started looking for more information about the author, I found out it was none other than Jon Sonmez. I had been a subscriber of his site http://simpleprogrammer.com since few years. The site has many useful resources for new and seasoned software professionals that will help them in increasing their market value and also to be effective in their careers.

While looking up the courses that are offered at this site one particular course caught my eye. This was what I was looking for. This was a course about building an effective blog to boost your career. I purchased the course immediately. Here is the link to the course.

This is a 5-part email course on building a blog to boost one’s software development career. I got the lessons twice weekly through emails. I was impressed by how systematic that course is. After practicing the homework I was able to come up with lot more topics than I had previously thought to blog on. It also helped me to be regular at blogging with the schedule I committed to.

I am now sure that this blog will help me reach out to larger audience and also help me get the recognition for my skills.

Please do check out the course and do sign up today.
