March has been epic month in terms of the content produced by the community and also for me personally as I started a new community with big plans ahead.
Kubesimplify - It is a community that aims to simplify cloud native for all. There are many things tied to it :
  • Student ambassador program - Where Students become part of it and they get resources, mentorship, projects to work on.
  • Blogs - I have tied kubesimplify website with Hashnode as a blogging platform and we have been posting blogs like crazy!!
  • Mini project - The plan is to grow the community and make them learn stuff by doing so there will be mini projects where people can collaborate on and build something useful for kubesimplify.
Within few days of start I have received a massive response in terms of contributions, subscribers, sponsors and we would love contributions so reach out if you want to contribute!
On a personal front I have been undergoing dental procedures - 8 root canals, 2 tooth extractions and 1 implant. 3 RCT is done and 1 implant as well. My process has been painful as all had Lesion Infection. It’s not complete and I plan to pause now for a few months and then resume the rest. Due to this I have not been able to produce more content on my YouTube channel but I have written blogs so that the knowledge keeps on flowing.
Another thing that happened - I got to 10k Subscribers on my YouTube channel!! That is a huge milestone and I would like to thank all of you for motivating me. After my dental procedures I will be back creating video content!

Kubesimplify blogs
At Kubesimplify the plan to to keep posting the content every day so reach out as we need more for the community. All the sponsorship money for Kubesimplify will be given back to the community.

What comes to mind when you talk about Kubernetes backup ? Also how often do you think you would need a backup like as a daily job with incremental snapshots?
What are the existing solutions out there and have you implemented a backup/DR strategy yet for your Kubernetes cluster?
