K8S at home

It has been a while now…but I spent the evenings of the past few weeks with self-learning (ie. hardcore “Google-ing”, as every self-respecting devs do nowadays…), and finally got a good grip on Kubernetes.

vSphere templating with Packer

In recent times I started to utilise Devops Tools more and more in my daily work, as I try to optimise my workload.
