During this talk we’ll do a walkthrough of Cluster API (, a project of SIG Cluster Lifecycle to bring declarative, Kubernetes-style APIs to cluster creation, configuration, and management. After introducing the project, we’ll do a live demo, showing how to quickly create a cluster using AWS, scaling it up, upgrading it, then spinning up an Azure cluster. Finally, we’ll leave some time for Q&A.
