Journey through the design of a Kubernetes AWS EKS Platform

This series of articles start as a personal development project.

As the reader, I want to improve my knowledge and try to keep up with all the different options available during the design of a Kubernetes platform based on the AWS EKS product.

I can’t think a better way to verify if I totally understood the subject than having to explain it to someone else.

You will be my Kubernetes AWS EKS sparring partner.

It will be a long journey using many different services/products and I want to avoid leaving running service when not needed and at the same time avoiding bad surprises like a huge AWS bill at the end of the month because I forgot to stop some resources.

With this goal in mind, all the components will be implemented following the idea of infrastructure as code so I can create and delete resources consistently.

All the code will be available on my GitHub account in the EKS journey repository.

I will try keeping the format very simple, short, reach of diagrams and pictures something that you can read during a coffee break.

Stay tuned to start this journey together :)
