My Kubernetes Book

I recently started my journey to the Kubernetes world, switching from theory knowledge to practical use-cases for customers.

This is a wonderful new technical area to discover with a lot of new:

  • Tools
  • Features/Capabilities
  • Documenations
  • Communities
  • Best-practices

Of course, I am far-far-away to master those new competencies but I learn more and more on a daily basis.

At the begining, I started a small wiki for my own usage to keep some useful commands, tips, how-to documentations. But I know think that this content may help others to centralize some re-usable content.

So I started a new side project to this blog: My Kubernetes Book: https://k8s-book.vupti.me/

This is not a substitution to official projects documentation, just a quick way for me to get the information I need.

Content

Currently, the ‘book’ content is the following:

  1. Deploy a K3S cluster
    1. All nodes pre-requisites
    2. Initial master node
    3. Worker node(s)
    4. Additional master nodes
  2. Setup a powerful Kubernetes client
    1. Basics tools
    2. Arkade
    3. k9s
    4. kubens & kubectx
    5. jsonnet
    6. Octant
    7. Argo cli
    8. OpenFaaS CLI
  3. Cluster customizations
    1. Traefik as ingress controler
    2. Monitoring with Prometheus
  4. Cluster usage
    1. Kubectl tips

Of course, the content will hopefully increase in the next months or years.
