Correctly Configure (Pre) Connections

CSS Wizardry

A trivial performance optimisation to help speed up third-party or other-origin requests is to preconnect them: hint that the browser should preemptively open a full connection ( DNS , TCP , TLS ) to the origin in question, for example: In the right circumstances, this simple, single line of HTML can make pages hundreds of milliseconds faster ! But time and again, I see developers misconfiguring even this most basic of features.

Kubernetes DaemonSet: Practical Guide to Monitoring in Kubernetes

DZone

As teams moved their deployment infrastructure to containers, monitoring and logging methods changed a lot. Storing logs in containers or VMs just doesn’t make sense – they’re both way too ephemeral for that. This is where solutions like Kubernetes DaemonSet come in. Since pods are ephemeral as well, managing Kubernetes logs is challenging. That’s why it makes sense to collect logs from every node and send them to some sort of central location outside the Kubernetes cluster for persistence and l
