Let's do Kubernetes
I’m taking a small detour today, to a topic that’s not strictly Go-related, but which I get asked about a lot: Docker and Kubernetes. Starting on Monday, in what is likely to become a 2- or 3-week series, I’m going to be deploying a small Go app I wrote, to Kubernetes on Google Cloud. I’ve done this before, but it’s been a few years, so I’m a bit rusty. And Kubernetes has changed (as it always does), so there are sure to be some educational bumps along the way.
