    Soon to be a better local dev experience, folks can do a lot of local testing for k8s using kind
  • Amazon EKS Anywhere
    The local cluster is using kind. I don't know all the details of how it's implemented on MacOS (I use Ubuntu) but according to the Cilium docs kind is a supported environment.
  • So I am looking to use a Pi Kubernetes cluster to run a codebase alongside an NGROK server. How would I achieve this after following the below tutorial?
    I'm not entirely sure what your use-case is. If you're using it to learn Kubernetes, you can also use Kind on a traditional desktop/laptop which should be slightly easier due to the architecture match, higher number of resources, and better match with cloud K8s environments.

    There's also Kind (Kubernetes in Docker) which accomplishes the same thing using upstream Kubernetes.

    It entirely depends on how you’re running it. If you’re always looking for that flexibility I’d recommend looking into running K8s in Docker.
  • Minikube VM. I’m having all sorts of trouble getting minikube to work. Does anyone know of a vm or lxc/LXD that is ready to go?

    FWIW: That project was started as an internal tool with a playful acronym and then went from obscure to well-known enough to making renaming a somewhat regrettable concept rather quickly just due to momentum. I think we'd have named it differently if we were aiming for widespread usage :-)

    We had no reason to worry about making it popular, the effort was staffed to improve developing Kubernetes itself.

    As for googling, I recommend adding keywords like "kubernetes" and for issues searching the repo itself or reaching out to the community for help

    That tool is written in "Go" which also somewhat famously doesn't search well without changing your terms up a bit.

  • Is Kubernetes a good choice for multi-tenant saas
    1.) K8s is a good fit for it with the right expectation, experience, and planning. However, manage your expectation if you're very new to it as other have stated. But once you understand the concepts it's quite powerful, especially for small teams. I've created teams large and small teams to manage it, and even with small teams 2-3 people, its very productive and managed tons of infra/ automation. I would use a local setup using kind to start experimenting. It runs on docker and is quick and easy to iterate. You can launch or tear down a cluster in a min or so.
  • Is there a self-paced lab Kubernetes deployment practice like google cloud in AWS? | 2021-07-15
    FaaS is more of an architecture really, kubernetes is about a standardized way of running your workloads. If you're not sure about it you can install kind ( so you can run multi node test clusters on your local machine to play with.
  • Been out of the job market for a few years and now everyone requires k8s experience, am I screwed? | 2021-07-15
    Still I do recommend checking out kubernetes. Their basic tutorial is pretty good and doesn't require you to install anything ( Then installing kind ( will make it very easy to run kubernetes clusters locally even with multiple nodes to play with.
