Technology Short Take 135


Welcome to Technology Short Take #135! This will likely be the last Technology Short Take of 2020, so it’s a tad longer than usual. Sorry about that! You know me—I just want to make sure everyone has plenty of technical content to read during the holidays. And speaking of holidays…whatever holidays you do (or don’t) celebrate, I hope that the rest of the year is a good one for you. Now, on to the content!


  • Arthur Chiao cracks open kube-proxy, a key part of Kubernetes networking, to expose the internals, and along the way exposes readers to a few different technologies. This is a good read if you’re trying to better understand some aspects of Kubernetes networking.
  • Gian Paolo takes a look at using tools like curl and jq when working with networking-related APIs.
  • It’s not unusual to see “networking professionals need to learn developer tools,” but how often do you see “developers need to learn these networking tools”? Martin Heinz discusses that very topic in this post.



Cloud Computing/Cloud Management

Operating Systems/Applications


  • Although I do not (yet) consider myself a developer, I found John Arundel’s Rust versus Go article to be very informative.
  • Ben Kehoe provides readers with a hygienic Python setup for Linux, macOS, and WSL.
  • The folks at SemaphoreCI shared with me an e-book on CI/CD with Docker and Kubernetes. Although some parts of it do focus on SemaphoreCI (as would be expected), I do believe it may still be a useful resource for some readers. It’s available behind a regwall (you have to supply an e-mail address) here.


Career/Soft Skills

That’s all for this time around. I’ll be back in early 2021 with the next Technology Short Take and more interesting—and hopefully useful—technical content. Until then, feel free to hit me on Twitter; I’d love to hear from you!
