Day 18 — Mini kubey kube, where are you?02 September 2020 · recurse-center Tweet
I decided to set up
minikube to create a small demo for a talk that I have to submit this weekend. Right now I'm going through the Phase 4 that Hynek Schlawack talks about in his article on conference speaking.
I SWEAR TO GOD I’M NEVER SUBMITTING A TALK EVER AGAIN #thatTimeOfTheYear

After scrolling through the large error logs and trying to make sense of them, I turned to Google and started looking at some existing GH issues. I came back after a while to see that it had started up (after some timeouts). I guess things were taking a lot of time to come up on my smol machine.
🌟 Enabled addons: default-storageclass, storage-provisioner 🏄 Done! kubectl is now configured to use "minikube" $ kubectl get pods No resources found in default namespace.
Today I attended
remotehost (it's called
localhost when everyone attends in person!) and learned how some alums are building really awesome virtual spaces. I also attended the NixOS user group, and learned how Andrey maintains Nix configurations for all his systems, which makes it easy to set up a new system with the same configuration. System reproducibility FTW! I want to try out NixOS soon. At the non-technical talks, I learned about Jacob's cool drawings, Nina's bread experiments, Patrick's NYC bus door adventures, and about Nina Simone from Dree.
Also, a middle school teacher across the world used
present to make a welcome screen for his students while they join the Zoom class, which is surreal!
