Verbal information transfer is better for some, written is better for others, and some like both for different things. Since verbal takes longer to get through than written, it's kinda inevitable that you'll leave some people bored if your provide both.

It only relists from the cache, though, so it's really only an insurance policy against external interactions for non-watchable resources.

Correct, resync period just relists from the cache, so it's basically only useful for periodic things like HPA or non-watchable systems.

This is about what reading new auth specs for the first time actually feels like:

Who's coming to KubeDay Bay Area this Saturday? I'm doing a workshop on building controllers with KubeBuilder, and we've got a bunch of other neat workshops, presentations, and lightning talks (and, of course, food :-))

The comic is amazing. Can't wait to check out the TV series.

Left college due to extenuating circumstances, got a job at , now work at . College was neat, but there's much to be learned by doing, from coding to design to how to interact with people. Discounting other experience for lack of a degree is foolish at best.

I... uh, might have gotten distracted by a philosophical debate about the nature of utopias and post-scarcity societies and missed tonight. Alternatively DM me your handle in case I'm on at weird hours :-)

I'm often on later too, especially if I eat dinner at work.

I've often wandered if we should just have a tool that encapsulates building to our patterns for us, and hands off nicely to the Go compiler when possible. Then we could stop copying Makefiles around and easily update build details (e.g. pushing fat container manifests).

... and we have a big ol' makefile that we have to copy around from project to project that doesn't change much, at least in kube-land, but also doesn't always get updated when we figure out better ways to do things.

If you're building something Kubernetes-sized, working on a read-only filesystem, or what-have-you, that gets frustrating real quick. Go's change detection is now good enough to lessen the impact (if people haven't written `go build -a`), but it still feels like a misuse of make

The really neat feature of make (IMO) is rebuild dependency detection. The common pattern of phony build targets drives me a bit nuts on occasion -- `make docker-build` often always recompile binaries, whether or not it's necessary.

Make seems to have a bit of an impedance mismatch with "modern" language compilers (e.g. Go). It's full power duplicates built-in compiler functionality in a way that's inefficient for things that don't work like C, and phony targets lead to weirdness...

and as cliche as it sounds, just having someone to break down to without worrying that they'll judge you, and/or someone to receive hugs from helps blunt the impact a bit for me. At any rate, I've found keeping things bottled up *definitely* doesn't help.

I burn future time to fuel "conference hours", so I usually get super sick afterwards (just broke down early this time though). Ignoring normal working hours & GitHub for a week helps a bit, but I basically just accept post-conf crashes and anxiety as a fact of life now :-/
