Slicing Kubernetes with Raspberry Pi, Monitoring, and Chaos
Do you ever feel like your systems lack unnecessary complexity? Do they just need more overengineering? This is the talk for you. Jonan Scheffler will detail the creation of a Raspberry Pi–based desktop Kubernetes cluster in an attempt to overcomplicate the already complex world of stateless web application deployment. He’ll walk through building an observability platform using open source tools like Prometheus, Grafana, and Jaeger to keep a close watch on our tiny fragile microservices, and then break them intentionally for our own amusement. Follow along as we exact our revenge on those infinitely frustrating code pits of rage in which we spend most of our lives. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll learn to appreciate why ARM-based desktop solutions do not make an effective replacement for entire cloud service ecosystems.
