Well… I missed all of April. But I have not been idle.
Welcome to my Blog and Kubernetes Playground
This site is dedicated to sharing the work that I do in my home lab. I am a huge fan of cloud native application delivery on Kubernetes based platforms. I specifically focus on OpenShift Container Platform, and its subscription free (community supported) sibling, OKD.
The projects that I present here are intended to reflect a “close to real-world” environment. The result is a more complicated setup than you will find in other tutorials, but the trade off is that your lab environment will resemble what you find in most corporate IT environments. I try to focus on what my brother-in-law commonly calls the “ilities” of IT; security, reliability, flexibility, availability, etc…
There are three different ways to navigate this site:
The Blog posts below, which I add to about once a month. They are a reflection of my current work, and often are dependent on previous posts.
The left hand navigation, (or drop down menu on mobile). Those links will take you to specific tutorials for building or adding capabilities to your home lab.
The top navigation bar.
So… It’s Pi day… I would be remiss if I did not give you a link to all of my Raspberry Pi pages…
I’ve mentioned a couple of times that this year I am starting a project to build a cloud native application that is deployed across multiple regions.
So… I planned this title a while back. How ironic that, as I sit here, we are expecting as much as a of foot of real snow…
