…I really wanted to build an Operator to control some resources in my cluster. After some trial and error I got things to work, and it took me many a moon to understand what was going on. Many documents were read, and many blogs were parsed, and finally I was able to understand what was going on. Then, I decided that for this story to have a happy ending, I was going to do a live demo of what Kubernetes Operators are, how they work, and how you can run them locally, and in your cluster. So come read this amazing code with me, laugh while I fumble through typos, cry with me when our code doesn’t compile, and finally, rejoice when we both create an operator together during this tale!
