Stories from an Italian Software Engineer

Automate thumbnails generation

In my latest post I told you I was starting a video series on Kubernetes and its ecosystem.

As part of the process, I uploaded all the streams on Youtube. I uploaded the first video without thinking it through. Still, for the second, I decided that it would be good to have a thumbnail for the video, and why would I do it manually if there is a way to automate it?


Adventures in Kubeland

I’m sure I’m not the only one struggling to keep track of all new tools and practices in the DevOps industry.
Last month I asked myself, how could I keep up to date with new things?

Enter Adventures in Kubeland!!

The idea is simple, explore Kubernetes and the CNCF landscape to get familiar with the various tools.
But why would I learn by myself when we could be learning together?


How I write Blog Posts (2022)

Every year, I promise to write at least one blog post a month, but EVERY SINGLE TIME that commitment only lasts for a while.

It’s not that I don’t try; for example, I published four blog posts last year, and this is the fifth this year, but sooner or later, I give up.


My new remote-local workstation setup

I always wanted to solve the problem of moving from laptop 1 to laptop X while continuing to work on a task.

The perfect example is this blog post, I’m writing this from laptop 1, but I would love to keep going from where I left when switching to a different notebook.

The solution should work not just for text editing but also for GUI applications in general.


Cluster Api - multi-tenancy EKS implementation

Cluster API in case you don’t know it is:

a Kubernetes sub-project focused on providing declarative APIs and tooling to simplify provisioning, upgrading, and operating multiple Kubernetes clusters.

Multi-tenancy is defined by the project itself:

Starting from v0.6.5, single controller multi-tenancy is supported that allows using a different AWS Identity for each workload cluster. For details, see the multi-tenancy proposal.

That is exactly what we are going to see in this post.



I’m not fronted or backend.
I’m not DevOps or SRE.
I’m not Developer or Architect.

I love software in any shape or form.
I love the fact that I can “materialize” ideas with it.
I love problems and I love challenges.


Let's talk terraform: genesis

I have used Terraform daily for the past five years, and during this time, I have developed some ideas on how to use it.

  • What to use.
  • What not to.
  • Why.

Here starts a series of posts meant to share how we are using terraform in 2021.
