In this lighthearted and demo-driven talk, Nic and Erik find themselves stranded with a shipwrecked Kubernetes cluster and no way to salvage it. Determined to never find themselves in this sticky situation again, they set out to learn how to use HashiCorp Terraform to consistently and reliably deploy DigitalOcean Kubernetes clusters and applications, provision storage, and how to expose them using ingress and load balancers.
Learn with them as they embark on a voyage of discovery, rebuilding their Kubernetes hopes and dreams using infrastructure as code, and ensure you never find yourself lost at sea.
