Upcoming Community Call - Cilium / Isovalent Presentation

Presenters

This community call will be led by Raymond de Jong.

Topics

This meeting will explore the uses of Cilium, an open source software used to secure the network connectivity between application services deployed using Kubernetes, and Hubble, the networking and security observability platform built on top of it.

Viewers will be shown how to check for connectivity and how to carry out basic troubleshooting. Later on in the meeting, an overview will be given of the network policy and the procedure for switching from Calico will be demonstrated.

Q&A is planned after the main part to look at any issues you might have encountered. Come join us!

You can join this meeting on Zoom (Meeting ID: 996 5655 0236, Passcode: 165357).

Community Call - Gardener Extension Development

Presenters

This community call was led by Jens Schneider and Lothar Gesslein.

Overview

Starting the development of a new Gardener extension can be challenging, when you are not an expert in the Gardener ecosystem yet. Therefore, the first half of this community call led by Jens Schneider aims to provide a “getting started tutorial” at a beginner level. 23Technologies have developed a minimal working example for Gardener extensions, gardener-extension-mwe, hosted in a Github repository. Jens is following the Getting started with Gardener extension development tutorial, which

In the second part of the community call, Lothar Gesslein introduces the gardener-extension-shoot-flux, which allows for the automated installation of arbitrary Kubernetes resources into shoot clusters. As this extension relies on Flux, an overview of Flux’s capabilities is also provided.

If you are left with any questions regarding the content, you might find the answers at the Q&A session and discussion held at the end.

Community Call - Deploying and Developing Gardener Locally

Presenters

This community call was led by Tim Ebert and Rafael Franzke.

Overview

So far, deploying Gardener locally was not possible end-to-end. While you certainly could run the Gardener components in a minikube or kind cluster, creating shoot clusters always required to register seeds backed by cloud provider infrastructure like AWS, Azure, etc..

Consequently, developing Gardener locally was similarly complicated, and the entry barrier for new contributors was way too high.

In a previous community call (Hackathon “Hack The Metal”), we already presented a new approach for overcoming these hurdles and complexities.

Now we would like to present the Local Provider Extension for Gardener and show how it can be used to deploy Gardener locally, allowing you to quickly get your feet wet with the project.

In this session, Tim Ebert goes through the process of setting up a local Gardener cluster. After his demonstration, Rafael Franzke showcases a different approach to building your clusters locally, which, while more complicated, offers a much faster build time.

Community Call - Gardenctl-v2

Presenters

This community call was led by Holger Kosser, Lukas Gross and Peter Sutter.

Overview

Watch the recording of our February 2022 Community call to see how to get started with the gardenctl-v2 and watch a walkthrough for gardenctl-v2 features. You’ll learn about targeting, secure shoot cluster access, SSH, and how to use cloud provider CLIs natively.

The session is led by Lukas Gross, who begins by giving some information on the motivations behind creating a new version of gardenctl - providing secure access to shoot clustes, enabling direct usage of kubectl and cloud provider CLIs and managing cloud provider resources for SSH access.

Holger Kosser then takes over in order to delve deeper into the concepts behind the implementation of gardenctl-2, going over Targeting, Gardenlogin and Cloud Provider CLIs. After that, Peter Sutter does the first demo, where he presents the main features in gardenctl-2.

The next part details how to get started with gardenctl, followed by another demo. The landscape requirements are also discussed, as well as future plans and enhancement requests.
