The internet is full of data… and full of data about data (metadata). It is presented to us in many ways. There are tables and lists and graphs (Oh My!), all just a mouse-click away (or maybe two, or seven, or maybe you need pages to get through it). However, there are many reasons you may want your data in a different format. Perhaps you need a new way to gather/present data for accessibility reasons, or perhaps you simply need to be able to save it offline. Maybe you want to send a memo to your boss (or professor) showing how many people have cloned your GitHub repo (or, in the case of my demo, we’ll demonstrate how many people have starred it). Maybe your organization requires a listing of trouble tickets that requires some field manipulation that the GUI itself cannot perform. Or maybe you want to leave your job as a software developer and become a social media specialist, so you’d like to quantify your twitter popularity in a spreadsheet… So, let’s learn about APIs!

Nick Miller has been a Linux enthusiast since high school. His day job focuses on Puppet, so he is new to Kubernetes and Ansible.

Kubernetes is what everyone is talking about these days, and what’s the cheapest way to get a physical Kubernetes cluster sitting on your desk? A cluster made of Raspberry Pis! After a total cost of around $350 and too many hours to count, I have a reasonably stable and tiny learning platform.
