This repo is a part of the Gruntwork Infrastructure as Code Library, a collection of reusable, battle-tested, production ready infrastructure code. If you’ve never used the Infrastructure as Code Library before, make sure to read How to use the Gruntwork Infrastructure as Code Library!

Core concepts

  • Kubernetes and EKS core concepts: learn about Kubernetes architecture (control plane, worker nodes), access control (authentication, authorization), resources (pods, controllers, services, config, secrets), and more.

  • Kubernetes in Action: the best book we’ve found for getting up and running with Kubernetes.

Repo organization

  • modules: the main implementation code for this repo, broken down into multiple standalone, orthogonal submodules.

  • examples: This folder contains working examples of how to use the submodules.

  • test: Automated tests for the modules and examples.
