Used Kubernetes
Used Helm
Used Rust
+ 1
Made some time this week to do a bit more with Helm and Kubernetes. Using GitHub Actions I now have a small Rust API that is tested, built and deployed to k8s automatically on each commit. It was fairly easy to achieve as the service is 100% stateless, however the result is pretty nice. The next challenge will be to tackle something more complex with shared state.

Finished a course
As a follow up to the Kubernetes courses I completed earlier, I've been working through a Helm course which I completed today. I'm not an expert on either yet, but it's good to have the basics under my belt.

Finished a course
It's been some years since I really did any frontend development in anger, so I've been brushing up on my skills. With that in mind, I've just completed Asim Hussain's "Advanced JavaScript" course to help make sure I'm up to speed on ES6. It was mostly revision / a refresher for me although I did pick up one or two new things.

Used Terraform
Used Kubernetes
In my first steps with Kubernetes I managed to deploy Traefik, and then after setting up cert-manager I enabled the Traefik dashboard using basic authentication and Let's Encrypt to keep it secure. All the infrastructure and configuration was set up using Github Actions, Terraform, kubectl and Helm.

Now that's all set up the next step will be to deploy a service to the cluster...

Read a book
Just finished working through “Hands-on-Rust”. Definitely got a firm grip on modules now, which I found a bit confusing when I first picked up Rust. Also learned about the ECS pattern, and a couple of gaming related algorithms. All good fun. I've not done any games coding since the STOS days!

Finished a course
Just finished Bret Fisher's excellent course on Kubernetes. I'm sure there will be further additions to it in the future, but for now it's time to get my feet wet and start building something with k8s...
