Much as I love k8s, writing initial YAML boilerplate is a pain. Since docker-compose YAML syntax describes many of the same things in a more compact format, I've taken to writing a docker-compose.yaml and then piping it through Kompose (https://kompose.io). Great timesaver.
further tooling adventures: switched to Pulumi from Terraform a couple of weeks ago, and am a fan. There's an almost 1:1 mapping to Terraform (they generate their libraries from the actual Terraform modules), plus the flexibility of a real language rather than just a DSL. https://www.pulumi.com/

You know when you come across a tool which fits a need you hadn't even noticed so perfectly that it makes you kind of annoyed? Well, here's kubefwd. Get ready to delete a whole bunch of those shell aliases you've been creating. https://github.com/txn2/kubefwd

@grufwub What are you looking for exactly? I know one company which is having a hell of a time recruiting decent devops/SRE people.

@kellerfuchs I truly wish this shit surprised me in the least
Next time some haunted joint of mutton from the Tory party tells you climate change is a myth, here’s what I want you to do.
Look the bastard dead in the eyes.
Say these five words.

I had a compulsion to write a thing about pattern recognition and being a bit odd in the head. https://medium.com/@syn/cryptonomicon-or-how-i-learned-to-love-my-brain-2f50d59b0451?source=friends_link&sk=975420e7aaf296f0779019a6b66debc5
