Kubernetes is effectively a blank canvas which we as engineers need to compose into a shape and style that fits our needs. This nearly always starts with running software through deployments. While this can get us started, many of our high value use cases require more complex compositions. Operators provide engineers a way to extend the building blocks of Kubernetes to build higher level abstractions. These abstractions can codify complex setup requirements, standardise capabilities across an organisation, and more. An example of operators at work include the Prometheus operator. This helps teams get started with monitoring and alerting with packaging and providing sensible defaults across an array of associated tools including Prometheus (for metric gathering), Thanos (for metric retention), Alertmanager (for alerts), and Grafana (for graphing). In this workshop we will build a basic operator which will enable a hands on exploration into use cases and structures of operators in more depth.
