How to transform your Ubuntu installation into a rolling release
Ubuntu users out there have two ways to go with their systems. Either they choose to follow the “standard” release that gets upgraded every six months, or choose the latest LTS (Long Term Support) which guarantees security updates and support for a five-year period. The problem with the first is that you’ll have to perform major upgrades to your system twice a year, while the issue with the latter is that you won’t get any major updates on parts of the system that you may care about using what’s latest.

How to use Docker in a practical way (part 1 – Introduction)
It is not an uncommon situation, for early adopters of newly introduced concepts and technologies, to be totally confused when these can fundamentally change the ways of developing and delivering services. Especially when everybody talks about something like Docker, and how awesome and game changing it is. This confusion happens when we try things early on and rushing straight to testing them without grasping the whole concept and background of this newly introduced technology.

How to setup a intermediate compatible SSL website with LetsEncrypt certificate

How to setup a intermediate compatible SSL website with LetsEncrypt certificate
Many people have decided to implement Let’s Encrypt into their production sites. I find this still a very bad idea to be done without being very (but really very) careful. Let’s Encrypt brings you freedom but also limits you in using the certificate with SHA-256 RSA Encryption. Support for SHA-2 has improved over the last few years. Most browsers, platforms, mail clients and mobile devices already support SHA-2. However, some older operating systems such as Windows XP pre-SP3 do not support SHA-2 encryption. Many organizations will be able to convert to SHA-2 without running into user experience issues, and many may want to encourage users running older, less secure systems to upgrade. In this tutorial, we are going to deal with this incompatibility in a simple, but still nasty way.
