I just learned about YAML anchors a few days ago, shortened up a docker-compose file I had quite nicely
No mic here at the office, just listening in
@Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) ~
does cert manager act as a private CA?~evermind, it sounds like it’s really just providing a way for key exchange

@Andriy Knysh (Cloud Posse) has joined the channel
Yeah, I’m working with a LE + Traefik + Consul project right now for customer domain hosting
I think I may have DCd
looks like erik froze for me too
did a bomb hit LA? office internet out?
I’m at this same spot on this question. I want to go with k8s, but i need to really evaluate whether that makes the most sense
Yeah I live in a cloudformation world, so slow, so limited
@oscarsullivan_old kubernetes up and running is a great book and does an amazing job at teaching you the primitives in k8s, starting with pods and going all the way through deployments, statefulsets, etc. it’s aging, but the primitives still line up
I’ve used both, Kubernetes the hard way didn’t help me that much. It would probably help more if you were planning to build your own cluster from scratch versus something like GKE or EKS. It did help teach me the various parts of kubernetes that are under the hood, but for running an app, not so much

@Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) what’s your thoughts on building your own K8S cluster with something like kops or kubeadm or whatever versus using EKS?
I know Kubernetes fairly well from a lab standpoint, I want to get it implemented at my new job here though
@Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) yeah good distinction, thanks for reminding me of that
I really want to just use EKS, but I don’t know enough to know where that will bite me, or if it will.
kubeaws generate cloudformation that I can keep committed in my own git repo, so that I can “gitops” all day long?
@oscarsullivan_old no you still need to provision non-kubernetes resources outside of k8s
This looks like a way to let K8S do cloudformation on your behalf, I’d bet as part of a yaml configuration or something, like you would for a pod or replicaset or deployment
More office hours tomorrow?
Thanks @Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)
we offer private consultative office hours for those who might be interested
It’s a good thing to have in the back of the pocket. I’d want to have a more defined problem to solve for such a service. I’m really enjoying having found this “SweetOps” community though, and if you guys get more clients out of it, all the better
What we realize is that sometimes a company might not even know what problems they might need to be solving. Our job as architects is to shape that process and help you start discussing it. Keep in mind, most companies re-platform at most every 3-5 years. We re-platform 12x a year or more, which offers tremendous accelerated learning. As a outside 3rd party we can help propose things from a different/fresh perspective.
@Alex Siegman Likewise thought the same: “I need a problem to solve before asking for help”… and yet I easily have 10 questions a day, 9 of which I can answer myself.. but what if I had someone else to: 1) bounce more advanced ideas with 2) give their 2 cents on my future plans 3) suggest something entirely new that I never thought of
That’s why we just signed up starting next week
o wait pre order
it’s been preorder for ever
says sep 2019
ok so I’ll go for first edition
If you’re not dead set on a paper copy, there’s a github repo with it out there… loads right up on a kindle
i read it in like 3 days on my train ride to/from work
