How (and why) I put together my docker based Drupal website fronted by Kong running on a Swarm

My side project for the last two months has been putting together what has ended up being docker based website fronted by Kong. (With a docker image repository thrown in for good measure.) It’s been a bit of an odyssey to be honest. I didn’t start out meaning to create this monster; it was just supposed to be a Drupal site running on docker but as I worked out the development and maintenance processes around it little details made me gradually add complexity. It might be a bit of a monster but it is my monster it works well for me.

My first Snaplogic Pipeline!

While I wait for decision makers where I work to decide on whether to approve our recommendation of looking at a new integration platform I have been able to spend some time getting familiar with the Snaplogic iPaaS. Apart from Snaplogic's own site there isn't too much online discussing it so I thought I would share my first impressions.

Why am I writing a Blog?

I thought I would start my blog with a post about why I am writing it. At the very least it will help collect my thoughts together about how I plan and write posts. Not that I expect that anyone will read it. You see I am not an expert, and I don't plan to write about stuff I know well. This blog is going to be a place for me to put my thoughts, my ideas and my plans. Many many things I put here will be wrong! Even worse, I am a terrible communicator, terrible at writing and my spelling and grammar sucks more than you know. But, I am an idea machine.
