My blogging is way down compared with only a post about OKit – OCI Design (on Windows). It largely comes down to lots of work on our Fluentd book. Chapter 6 is now available in the MEAP. As the promo info says …

What’s new?

Chapter 6, “Filtering and Extrapolation”

Gain control and insight!

Last chapter, we touched on the use of the Filter directive. But that was just the tip of the iceberg! In Chapter 6, we’ll plunge below the surface, exploring the when, why, and how of applying filters to give us more insight and precise control over events.

Earlier chapters have been tweaked, with some additional improvements which will make the live reading experience better.

Another chapter and an appendix should be finding their way to MEAP very soon as it was handed over by our project editor. That will make it seven chapters available, and all the appendices.

Whilst the peer review is taking place the chapter covering plugin development is progressing. The development work has got the basics of the output plugin with log events being stored in Redis and the input being worked on as well. If you want a peak, keep an eye on my GitHub repository (here).

But is isn’t all writing…

I presented on Twitch – you can catch that at https://m.twitch.tv/videos/809295979 I’ve been offered the opportunity to present again, so keep an eye out for something next year.

We recorded a podcast with the excellent guys over at Adventures In DevOps. We don’t have the exact date for the podcast to be released, but I imagine it will sometime during Jan 2021. I’d recommend checking out the podcasts. I’ve been dipping into their back catalogue of recordings and the team ask some really thought provoking questions.

If that wasn’t enough, we’ve been fortunate enough to have some time to talk with leading members of the Fluentd and Fluent Bit projects which was a real pleasure. Hopefully, as we leave this horrendous year behind we’ll get to talk and possibly collaborate some more.
