How did we end up with containers?
No, no, no: "If you’re building a container artifact, testing it, and then deploying it, it matters less if your build process is held together with spit and chewing gum. As long as someone can work the magic and get a container spit out, and it works, then it works."

DevOps and CI automation simplified | Shippable
I haven't tried it but the reputation is that it's grown up, monorepo-focused, and maybe an alternative to the Chef Delivery-style pipelines.

The need for a Digital Geneva Convention - Microsoft on the Issues
This is really great leadership from Microsoft. I want this for the world. Perhaps my only criticism is its focus on nation-state attackers. For most service providers, it looks far more likely that identity thieves and Bitcoin miners are the primary threats.

FakeRoot - Debian Wiki
"This is done by setting LD_PRELOAD to libfakeroot.so, which provides wrappers around getuid, chown, chmod, mknod, stat, and so on, thereby creating a fake root environment." I always wondered how this worked.

My $169 development Chromebook
Some really fantastic advice in here. I don't personally feel the need to be capable of doing work without an Internet connection and I think for a daily driver the most expensive Chromebook on the market (base models around $1,000) are a better idea than going super cheap but all of this advice is still very sound.
