Docker 1.13 was released just a few days ago (blog post here). With it came several improvements to Docker Swarm. One highly anticipated improvement (at least by me anyways) is secrets management. In this post, we’ll see how to add secrets to a swarm and how to make them available to running services.

In this post, we’ll start at the very beginning. We’ll spin up an ELB, configure its listeners, and then deploy an application to an EC2 instance.
In case you missed it, DockerCon 2016 was amazing! There were several great features announced, with most of it stemming from orchestration is now built-in. You get automatic load balancing (the routing mesh is crazy cool!), easy roll-outs (with healthcheck support), and government-level security by default (which is crazy hard to do by yourself).
In case you’re a little confused on how to spin up a mini-cluster, this post will show you how. It’s pretty easy to do!
I’ve been recently spending quite a bit of time in the DevOps space and working to build out better CI/CD pipelines, mostly utilizing Docker. In this post, I demonstrate building out a pipeline that will create a simple Docker image and push it to Amazon’s EC2 Container Registry.
Now that I’ve been running a Docker-based QA environment for a good month, there’s been a few things I’ve learned that are worth mentioning. So… here goes!
