Quakecon 2005 - Day 3

Filed under
Gaming

I decided to give today's story a little twist from the usual. I'm going to go through a quick overview of my third day here at QuakeCon 2005. From wake to present, I'll tell you what it is like to be here, on-site, at the United State's largest LAN party.

Well, after a late night, or should I say early morning, of gaming I was in no shape to be getting up at the early time of 9:00am, but that is when the alarm was set for and I couldn't fight the urge to get back into the BYOC.

Everyone was starting to feel the effects of the lack of sleep and ego's were definitely getting in the way of having a great time. Food took care of that, and as soon as everyone had their fill of fast-food, we were all ready to head back to the Gaylord Texan to rack up a few frags.

What containers and unikernels can learn from Arduino and Raspberry Pi

There is a lot of interesting buzz around specialized container hosts, rump kernels, and unikernels because they hold the potential to revolutionize certain workloads (embedded, cloud, etc.). Keep your eye on this exciting, fast moving space, but cautiously. Currently, unikernels seem quite similar to building printed circuits. They require a lot of upfront investment to utilize and are very specialized, providing benefits for certain workloads. In the meantime containers are quite interesting even for conventional workloads and don't require as much investment. Typically an operations team should be able to port an application to containers, whereas it takes real re-engineering to port an application to unikernels and the industry is still not quite sure what workloads can be ported to unikernels. Here's to an exciting future of containers, rump kernels, and unikernels! Read more
