Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Cloud Zone (December 05 - December 12). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. QUIZ: What's Your Developer Personality?

  • Take the long or short version of our fun 'developer personality' quiz! Once you take it, you'll get a series of initials just like the Myers-Briggs personality test, but the attributes are geared specifically toward common developer personality traits, not general personality traits. Have fun!

2. Core Java Interview Questions List: Part I

  • As I’ve discussed several times on this site, I’m not a fan of learn by wrote java questions. However, a lot of people continue to ask them during their interview process so it means you need to know how to answer them.

3. Java and Node in Microcontainers with Docker

  • Part 2 of the article about running Java and Node.js based applications (for example Microservices) in Microcontainers with Docker. An example using Consul for registration and discovery and cAdvisor for monitoring.

4. AWS Activate: Pros, Cons, and Everything in Between

  • First and foremost, it is important to define what AWS Activate is and what it is used for before we can take a deeper look. Exactly one year ago, Amazon created a program specifically designed for a particular group of customers that often times is in need of as much help as they can get (AKA startups).

5. SDN and the implications of a single system image

  • The question is how to take devices explicitly designed to operate discretely and make them behave as a single cohesive unit.

Learn how to auto-discover your containers and monitor their performance, capture Docker host and container metrics to allocate host resources, and provision containers.
