A large portion of my time on the OpenShift team has been spent working on cluster lifecycle improvements, particularly in the realm of upgrades. Throughout this work we’ve been targeting the ability to upgrade clusters without requiring application downtime. I recently took some time to demonstrate that we can hit that target, please check out the results on the OpenShift Blog: Zero Downtime Upgrades With OpenShift Ansible

With Kubernetes 1.4 sig-cluster-lifecycle released an alpha of kubeadm, a new utility we’ve been working on to make cluster bootstrapping as simple as possible for new users, but also provide tooling and infrastructure that can be used for production clusters. The initial goal was simple, install the bits (now delivered via new OS packages), one command to create a cluster: $ kubeadm init And one very short command to copy and paste to join nodes to the cluster:

I’ve just uploaded a v1.10 release of NetWorth, my personal finance / net worth tracking / budgeting app for Android. Changes in v1.10 When viewing a projection you can now see how each budget item influenced your net worth over this period of time. Display of budget totals in projections is now sorted and color coded. Add new pre-seeded projection dates for 1, 2, and 6 months into the future. Added ability to save notes on snapshots to document oddities.

I’ve just uploaded a v1.8 release of NetWorth, my personal finance / net worth tracking / budgeting app for Android. Changes in v1.8 Replaced the graphing library used previously with MPAndroidChart. Graphs now look a lot better, and support a variety of touch gestures which ultimately expose a lot more information. During a future projection, per-account data points are now captured. These can be viewed as a graph or a list by tapping the account within the projection balances list, as well as the budget items that affected the account during this projection, and by how much.

Happy New Year! Here’s NetWorth 1.7. NetWorth is my Android app for keeping tabs on your finances and projecting into the future by combining this data with a budget. (more details on the Play Store listing) New in 1.7: Store the expected balances with each (new) snapshot (as per your budget), and display the delta between actual and expected when viewing a snapshot. (will graph this performance against budget in the future) Allow comparing snapshot to expected.
