Getting started with Kubernetes can be a little overwhelming. With so many tools like Minikube, K3s, Docker Desktop, MicroK8s, and Kind, even knowing which test distribution to use is not an easy choice.
For local development, I find myself using Kind. It is quick to boot and integrates well with WSL2 allowing me to quickly switch between Windows and Linux development.
In this blog post and the associated screencast, I show you how to quickly get up and running with a local development Kubernetes cluster using Kind and a hosted instance of Octopus.
