This has been a ridiculously productive Monday. I’ve got a lot of communications kicked off and some continued on a number of key points of business. I’ve also been involved with editing, writing, and getting a number blog entries posted today besides this one.
- Build a Kubernetes Cluster on Google Cloud Platform with Terraform - even though I wrapped it up last night I saved it for a final edit run this morning. That published super early.
- Speaking, Follow Up, and Improving - Next up was this post where I outlined my mission when presenting, and what I aim to accomplish with every presentation I give.
- A Modern Cross-Platform approach to µServices in .NET - Then I did a final edit pass on and worked with Joachim @ Pelotech to get this article published. He’s got some really great material coming on the tail of this one too. C#, REST Services, microservice style implementation, GRPC, graphql, reactjs, and more.
- Big Ole Invisible Freight Railroads (Let’s Talk Volumes) - In my search for freight shipments data, I wrote a piece on my efforts to find, and eventually fumble through not finding the granularity of data that I needed.
Now I’m kicking back and chilling for a few on the couch and it was just time for some relaxing metal tunes. These are different then the ones I often post, which tend toward waking up and kicking off Monday with attitude. But before diving into the metal this grand Monday, let’s talk about a code challenge shall we?
In this blog entry I’m going to detail the exact configuration and cover in some additional details the collateral resources you can expect to find once the configuration is executed against with Terraform. For the repository to this write up, I create our_new_world available on Github.
A lot of this material I wrote about with Setting up a GCP Container Cluster - Part I and Setting up a GCP Container Cluster - Part II. I had started on a Part 3 around setting up Drone.io on a Kubernetes/GCP Container Cluster but stopped midway through with other demands. This post is a more up to date post of all those things plus more. With this post completed I’ve stepped back into getting Drone.io setup and am now finally finishing that blog entry! #win!
First things first, locally you’ll want to have the respective CLI tools installed for Google Cloud Platform, Terraform, and Kubernetes.
It’s not Monday anymore, but we still need some heavy music to debug to. Late better than never, here’s the fire.
Flip this around to some In This Moment with a flashback to the… ya know, previous decades.
