So after my work is done, and family is asleep, my inner geek'ness wakes up to try some new things which I heard about OR wanted to learn.
For example: Few weeks ago, I was curious if I could somehow teach Google Assistant/Alexa to run some command for me.
I went onto YT and this guy deployed full Kubernetes Cluster by just saying "Hey Google, Start Cluster" , the fact that GA asked what size cluster do you want, which zone and which environment to deploy it into.. I was super impressed.
Now some of you might find that cheese, but whatever.. I had different things in my mind I could do with that power 😂.
ME:Hey Google, scale up QA to 50 nodes, QA is having a hard time
GA: Yes my lord, and do you want me to slack the status once I am done?
ME: Yeesss please.
I searched for some code and samples and seriously there is almost nothing out there that ties Google Assistant > GKE (Google Kubernetes Engine) ... (Basically Google Cloud 😛)
Well, I got to the point where I slapped Dialogflow which created a Function, and that function triggeres API between Google Assistant and GKE.
I am not ready to show off, but if anyone is interested in working offline , feel free to hit me up :) ..
Oh and today I learned more about GitLab + GKE ( Please bare in mind that I am exclusivly working on Kubernetes in AWS and or baremetal (locally) , so connecting the GitLab and doing CI/CD with GKE was a nice learning curve..
Here are samples if you are into it: GitLab
