I know so much more about Kubernetes than I did a couple of weeks ago, but I'm still at the stage where I have to follow a guide to get much of anything done.
For example! If I want to automate registering SSL certs I can install a special Issuer component. To do that I use Helm, which is a package manager for K8s. I didn't even know that was a thing!
Then there are 'charts' for automating the setup of entire apps in the cluster...
The list goes on. I'm enjoying myself though!
