Full App Lifecycle In Kubernetes With Argo CD, DevSpace, vCluster, k3d, and GitHub Actions

Application lifecycle typically consists of three parts. First, we develop locally, we deploy to temporary environments, usually due to creating pull requests, and we proceed towards a permanent environment, all the way until production. Can we streamline and simplify the whole application lifecycle process by combining Kubernetes, vCluster, DevSpace, Argo CD, k3d, and GitHub Actions? Even if you prefer a different combination, the principles behind this process can be easily applied to a myriad of other tools.

Combining Argo CD (GitOps), Crossplane (Control Plane), And Kubevela (OAM)

Can we make Kubernetes disappear? Can we make infrastructure and application management so simple that anyone can do it? Can we leverage DevOps, SRE, ops, and sysadmin experience to create a system that would make developers autonomous? TL;DR We can do that by combining ArgoCD (GitOps), Crossplane (control plane), Kubevela (OAM), and a few other tools.

How To Shift Left Infrastructure Management Using Crossplane Composites

The job of ops should not be to create and manage infrastructure for other teams. Instead, it should be to enable other teams to manage their own infra. It should be about creating tools and platforms that are opinionated, yet provide sufficient freedom for the teams, no matter whether they are using AWS, Azure, Google Cloud (GCP), or any other provider.

Using Rancher For Creating And Managing Kubernetes Clusters

How can we create and manage Kubernetes clusters on-prem or in Cloud? How can we manage our clusters across providers and regions? Can Rancher and Rancher Kubernetes Engine (RKE) help us with those and other similar tasks? Can we use it to manage clusters no matter whether they are in AWS, Azure, Google Cloud (GCP), DigitalOcean, Linode, VMWare, and other Cloud providers as well as in our own on-prem datacenters?
