Local Kubernetes Development With Crossplane and Okteto
Last week I co-hosted an episode of The Binding Status with Crossplane's maintainer Daniel Mangum. It was a blast! We talked about our open source project, Crossplane, and how you can use both to develop Cloud Native applications that span Kubernetes deployments and Cloud Services.
Watch the recording here 📺:
Here are my top takeaways from the talk:
- A lot of applications contain resources that are not hosted in Kubernetes, like databases.
- Crossplane helps you manage your cloud services using
- Being able to use the same type of cloud services in dev and prod helps you catch bugs early on.
- Okteto's remote dev environment automatically inherit the secrets created by Crossplane just as if you were in a production pod.
