Today’s Full Stack Journey episode explores how users can leverage Kubernetes to control other parts of your technology stack, including cloud-native services and resources. In the last episode, we talked about the AWS Controllers for Kubernetes. In this episode, we’re talking about Crossplane!

Crossplane uses APIs in Kubernetes and public cloud providers to allow you to provision and manage cloud services and infrastructure from Kubernetes.

My guest is Daniel Mangum (@hasheddan on Twitter as well as on GitHub). Daniel is a Crossplane maintainer and Senior Engineer at Upbound.

We discuss:

* The Crossplane project, what it does, and how it works

* How Crossplane compares to Terraform and CloudFormation

* User benefits

* What are Compositions and XRDs?

* Multi-tenancy and Crossplane

* How to get started

In the show notes below you’ll find additional resources for Crossplane. Thanks for listening!
