Another week is over, for a quite busy one. I’m still working on automating HCL Connections installation and think about creating pytests for these deployments. So here is the this weeks mix of my bookmarks, tools I used and articles I found interesting.

Maybe it is time to write a “tools I use” article.

Last week I didn’t find very useful links to read or articles to share. This week I read more books, so a recommendation for a book this week and two articles with awk basics.

https://www.packtpub.com/product/the-kubernetes-workshop/9781838820756[The Kubernetes Workshop   icon:external-link[], window=_blank]:: Still preparing for CKA, so I read a lot around Kubernetes. This book is brand new and the first chapters are already useful. I think it’s more detailled than the books I read about Kubernetes before.

It is Linkdump time again. I fixed some things during the week, so my https://github.com/Shaarli/Shaarli[Shaarli instance] can use the API now. I do a lot of research and reading on mobile devices (tablet and phone). Now I can share important articles through https://stakali.toneiv.eu/[Stakali] , add short notes and do followups on my other devices (tablet, computer). To automate the linkdump posts, I created a short https://gitlab.com/stoeps/shaarli2hugo[Python script to collect my saved bookmarks] (marked with the tag linkdump) and create an asccidoc document for my hugo instance. So I can do a quick review and post it.
