Kubernetes reminds me a lot of git. Git was originally designed to be a collection of tools to create a version control system. Kubernetes is very similar. It exposes a lot of primitives to help people develop their own orchestration, dev-ops tooling because of it's low-level, beautifully designed APIs. A lot of kubectl tooling, is just using lower level kubernetes APIs underneath. In this talk, I will talk about how we created an opinionated workflow for devops that did everything triggered from receiving git-push and then generate a docker image, issue a zero-downtime rollout, generate SSL certificates, and reconfigure the API gateway using Kubernetes as a framework. This talk will help you understand the Kubernetes API, the Kubernetes execution model and design philosophy, and maybe write your own tools for fun and profit!
