  • The Developer Advocate ToolKit: Software Tools You Need To Move Fast | 2021-10-14
    Telepresence: It's great for connecting their local development machine seamlessly to a remote cluster via a two-way proxying mechanism. Telepresence enables developers to code locally and runs the majority of their services within a remote Kubernetes cluster.
  • Homelab for self-hosted remote software development | 2021-08-15
    Right now I do a lot of web development (Node.js, Vue) so I set up proxies to view my WebPack dev server on the same website as my VS code under a subdomain ( . I heavily utilize containers to locally run our database, application, and some microservices when locally testing. However I recently set up telepresence to intercept our staging k8s cluster and run my development builds straight on our real infra which is amazing and reduces my reliance on IO/proxies to test my work.

    some alternative tool, that enables similar workflow, but via other means:

    I guess what you're looking for is something like this
  • Wondering how to efficiently debug applications running on clusters
    I use tele presence.
  • What about Kubernetes-native development?
    And yes, currently it just adds friction since developers face high entry barriers with K8s. Btw. with tools like you don't have to build the image over and over again.
  • External Kubernetes cluster for local development
    I was just wondering if there was a better way for local development on weaker machines. I was thinking along the lines of a separate cheap box that hosts my cluster connected to my development laptop through ethernet. Can I use a raspberry pi stack, or an old used system for the cheap to achieve this? Or is there anything I can do to have a remote cluster behave as if it is local (does telepresence achieve this, or does Cloud-Code). My company can provide remote clusters for development, but I'm not sure how well I can do local development with it (skaffold).
  • Ask HN: Who is hiring? (April 2021) | 2021-04-01

    Lastly, our CMO is hiring a Head of Digital Marketing to build, run and fine-tune Ambassador Labs’ digital marketing strategy and systems. Our growth/marketing teams is very different than how most traditional software companies are run. If you’d like to read more about our go to market strategy, read about our Product Led Growth model (”Defining Product-Led Growth" section) in the BUILD eBOOK:

  • What's New in Telepresence 2? | 2021-03-10
    Hi HN!

    I'm one of the engineers working on Telepresence. I've been working on it on-and-off for about 2.5 years (but with about a continuous year of "off" in the middle there). To me, Telepresence is about making Kubernetes development accessible/palatable to "traditional" developers who are skeptical/hostile to this whole "cloud native" thing (developers who are like me).

    A big part of 2.1.0 is open-sourcing another big bucket of code with the CNCF, so I'd be remiss if I didn't give HN an express link to the code:

    I'm here if you have any questions!
