Social recommendations and mentions

We have tracked the following product recommendations or mentions on various public social media platforms and blogs. They can help you see what people think about k3sup and what they use it for.
  • How do you archive your side hobby projects?
    I recommend learning docker first, then pick a vps host from vpsbenchmarks, then use k3sup to deploy a kubernetes cluster on that, then follow a getting-started kubernetes tutorial from there. You'll also want to buy a domain name with tld-list and then provision a TLS certificate with cert-manager and letsencrypt (skip steps 1-4 because Google Cloud is overpriced).

  • What do you use as a kubernetes base?
    I just installed k3s yesterday using k3sup on 6 VMs (3 masters, 3 workers) each with 2GB RAM ( limited by the actual RAM on hardware, for now ) with Ubuntu 22.04 as the base OS. Source: over 1 year ago
  • What's a cheap way to setup your own Kubernetes cluster locally or remote?

You need metallb (or similar) to get your local server exposing your services correctly. Source: about 2 years ago

  • Flunked out of FAANG (zing!) and realized that my 6 years of experience have been spent with my head firmly lodged within my ass. Below is my plan to unfuck myself. Feedback appreciated.
    Learning Kubernetes (K8s) for me was about getting pissed off enough at Bezos for all the money he was making off of me lol. I wanted to have my own little infrastructure that I control but without having to babysit it. I tried Docker Swarm, which was nice but wasn’t translating into professional-grade cluster experience. I found a project called Open FAAS that let me deploy my own Lambda/serverless. It ran on... Source: over 2 years ago
