Book: Peopleware



Where it's proven - with actual statistical facts, not only theories - that in IT - like elsewhere - PEOPLE and not TECHNOLOGIES are the key to success.... and that people are most productive when they are FREE to communicate and cooperate, and HAPPY and in a natural environment and without management pressure and coercion.

Quod Erat Demonstrandum.

OpenShift, Minishift, VirtualBox

Excellent VERY quick introduction to OpenShift:



I am following this nice introduction to OpenShift https://www.udemy.com/openshift-developers-workshop/ with github https://github.com/drizzleconsulting

Download and install VirtualBox https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

Install Docker https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-windows/

Download and unzip Minishift https://github.com/minishift/minishift/releases

If you get this error

.\minishift.exe start
-- Installing default add-ons ... OK
-- Checking if Hyper-V driver is configured ... FAIL
   Hyper-V virtual switch is not set


it means that maybe Docker is not installed

When I try to install Docker, it tells me "HyperV is not available on Home editions, please use Docker Toolbox" - which uses Oracle VirtualBox instead of HyperV

Since I have Windows 10 Home and I don't want to waste 170 USD to buy Windows Enterprise, I am installing Docker Toolbox https://docs.docker.com/toolbox/overview/#whats-in-the-box
