In 2016 Justin sold all of his Bitcoin and bought a Kubernetes home lab. The return on investment for learning Kubernetes has been more valuable than any crypto currency. With 6 years experience building labs at various budgets he’ll share what he has learned and suggestions if you’re getting started today.

Benefit to the ecosystem

Many people learn by doing and have limited budgets. Kubernetes the hard way is a great learning tool, but to deeply understand how the underlying components work sometimes unplugging a cable is a better learning experience. This talk will collect hardware options and suggestions for people building home labs today.

I will bring example hardware and have suggestions ranging from entry level to home data center.
