As a child I went through a phase of enjoying taking things to pieces. I’d like to think that I was exploring and trying to understand and see how things worked rather than just being methodically destructive.
I’m currently experimenting with building several of my own Alpine-based Docker images and compiling various technologies from source, namely PHP7 FPM, nginx, Node.js, Beanstalkd, Postgres, Redis and the ELK stack — at least for starters.
This is giving me the opportunity to tweak and customise with impunity as I can just throw things away and start again when I break things. Unlike my mum’s alarm clock.
I’ll be sure to share them on GitHub / GitLab and Docker Hub when I’m happy with them.
