[Redirect Magazine] #20 - Debugging HTTP requests in Docker, homographs, learning new things and evolutionary architectures

Been reading through my saved posts on dev.to, so the source for today is mostly that. Articles “Intercept HTTP traffic exiting a docker container” Nice example on how to intercept HTTP and HTTPS requests coming from a Docker container for debugging. “Homographs, Attack!” Had already seen some quick articles on these kinds of attacks where the URL for a page is not what it looks like, but this is a really good post explaining things in more depth....

Quick intro to Docker and Docker Compose: Angular, ASP.NET Core and Postgres app

Intro I wanted to play a little with Docker Compose so I created a little PoC that had the usual components of a web application: a frontend, a backend and a supporting database. Sample code to follow along here. Sample overview As I was just looking for the simplest thing just to make all the bits work together, I whipped out a pretty stupid scenario.

Getting this up and running – Installing Docker and running applications with it (2/3)

This post will focus on installing the Docker engine and then running the applications we need to make the blog work as Docker containers. I’m not the best to explain all about Docker, so I’ll focus on what I needed to do to get the blog running. If you really want to learn about Docker there are lots of good resources out there, starting with Docker’s own documentation (which I used a lot)....

Getting this up and running - Intro

So I guess a good article to begin with would be to explain how I got this site up. Even more fitting is it has nothing to do with .NET, which you would expect would be on the debut article around this parts (rest assured those will come like a stampede :) ). So, let me start by summarize how this thing is working: The server is a Linode [1] virtual machine....
