Note: This post was originally published on the AWS Containers Blog. On March 10, 2020, we introduced Bottlerocket, a new special-purpose operating system designed for hosting Linux containers. In this post, I want to take you through some of the goals we started with, engineering choices we made along the way, and our vision for how the OS will continue to evolve in the future.
In the welcome post of this blog, one of the things I said I wanted to write was a description of how this blog was built. I didn’t want to do that at the very beginning, as it would be weird for a brand-new blog to only have such meta-content. But the blog has been around for a year now, and I was prompted by something I saw on the Internet: @hillelogram Have you considered writing your own static site generator?
