The main Concept of Buddhism

I came up following diagram out of three purposes.

First, I wanted to sort out the main concepts of Buddhism and see how they connected. Although I had done it several times in paper when learning, but it's the first time I tried to put all of them together with nice colored diagram in digital form so that I can share them.

Second, I found cross-referencing the chinese terminology & english translation is very useful for learning. Chinese terminology is compact and profound. The flip side is sometimes its is difficult to grasp its essence.  English translation has the advantage of simplicity and can be used as a comparison or reference . And the bonus point is I wish I can make a very tiny contribution regarding to bridge the Chinese Buddhism and the western Buddhism world. 

Finally, I want to show that Buddhism probably is more about wisdom than religion. It has the most profound theories and practice.  Look at the diagram. Doesn't it look a system archicture  for a complex software?  It has lots of subsystems and they are interconnected. I have lot of good words to say about Buddhism but I will stop here since I'm not qualified to preach it. For what Buddhism really about,  you should look at the book   by my respected Dharma teacher Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse. 

Wish those who see the article can build a connection with Buddhism sometime, not necessary now but at the right time.

Understand Container - Index Page

This is an index page to a series of 8 articles on container implementation. OCI Specification Linux Namespaces Linux Cgroup Linux Capability Mount and Jail User and Root Network and Hook Network and CNI
This page has a very good page view after being created. Then I was thinking if anyone would be interested in a more polished, extended, and easier to read version.
So I started a book called "understand container". Let me know if you will be interested in the work by subscribing here and I'll send the first draft version which will include all the 8 articles here. The free subscription will end at 31th, Oct, 2018.

Android Camera2 API Explained

Compared with the old camera API, the Camera2 API introduced in the L is a lot more complex: more than ten classes are involved, calls (almost always) are asynchronized, plus lots of capture controls and meta data that you feel confused about.

Understand Container: OCI Specification

OCI is the industry collaborated effort to define an open containers specifications regarding container format and runtime - that is the official tone and is true. The history of how it comes to where it stands today from the initial disagreement is a very interesting story or case study regarding open source business model and competition.

But past is past, nowadays, OCI is non-argumentable THE container standard, IMO, as we'll see later in the article it is adopted by most of the mainstream container implementation, including docker, and container orchestration system, such as kubernetes, Plus, it is particularly helpful to anyone trying to understand how the containers works internally. Open source code are awesome but it is double awesome with high quality documentation!
