2021-02-06, 16:00–16:30, D.infra

luster API is a Kubernetes sub-project focused on providing declarative APIs and tooling to simplify provisioning, upgrading, and operating multiple Kubernetes clusters.

Cluster API provides clusterctl, which can be configured with environment variables and allows the generation of Kubernetes manifests that describe your workload clusters.

While this provides a great on-boarding experience, managing and wrangling more YAML isn't something we're all yearning to do.

Fortunately, there's a better way.

Introducing Cluster API bindings for TypeScript, Go, and Python.

In this talk, I'll introduce you to managing Cluster API through your favourite programming languages.

Cluster API is a great piece of technology, but managing and constructing the YAML can be painful and difficult.

This talk introduces the audience to using Pulumi and custom built libraries for exposing Cluster API via TypeScript, Go, and Python.
