    I have been using Skaffold to deploy my apps to Kubernetes. As I use this for spring Boot apps too so it saves me learning another deployment process.

  • go-cloud

    The Go Cloud Development Kit (Go CDK): A library and tools for open cloud development in Go.

    I generally use Go Cloud in most projects. Has a lot of boiler plate stuff that's useful when deploying on either Google Cloud or AWS.

    The context switching struggle is real. Zigi makes context switching a thing of the past. It monitors Jira and GitHub updates, pings you when PRs need approval and lets you take fast actions - all directly from Slack!
