I was lately tinkering with Kubernetes with the intention of getting myself some hands-on experience and eventually get certified as a CKA on the way.

Initially I was playing with Kind and virtual machines in the laptop. Then I ended up purchasing a used i7 with 32g for few hundreds and deployed my clusters in Proxmox.

It was all fun until I destroyed my cluster ๐Ÿ”ฅ and had to rebuilt all over again. It was too many steps and I couldn't find any end to end automation that I could use to make the new cluster creation quicker.

Therefore I decided to automate everything with Terraform and Ansible ๐Ÿค–

Its nothing fancy but works end to end and creates a three node cluster within 5-6 minutes ( depending on your hardware ) ๐Ÿ˜Š

The repo is here and hope it helps someone who is travelling the same path and tinkering with Kubernetes in a home lab setup.

Until the next time! ๐Ÿ‘‹
