Thrashing Code Metal Monday for Week of October 23rd 2017

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.

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?

Build a Kubernetes Cluster on Google Cloud Platform with Terraform


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 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 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.

Thrashing Code Metal Monday for Week of October 16th 2017

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.
