Cluster API as Code

Cluster API is a Kubernetes sub-project focused on providing declarative APIs and tooling to simplify provisioning, upgrading, and operating multiple Kubernetes clusters.

Cluster API provides clusterctl, which can be configured with environment variables and allows the generation of Kubernetes manifests that describe your workload clusters.

Fortunately, there's a better way.

Introducing Cluster API bindings for TypeScript, Go, and Python.

In this talk, I'll introduce you to managing Cluster API through your favourite programming languages.
