Kill all non-Kubernetes containers in Docker
At work we’re using Kubernetes with Docker for Mac on our local development environments—which has been amazing. However, devs often end up with dangling non-Kubernetes containers hanging around (from terminals being accidentally closed or VS Code reloads) keeping expensive Docker bind mounts around. This is a command I chained together to cleanup these extra containers without disturbing those in the Kubernetes deployment.

Using Gzip to create .gz files
Compressing files from the terminal doesn’t need to be a magical combination of options. Learn all the basics of Gzip with examples.

This is how I overcame many of the issues—and you can too—by adopting Docker for development.
