Creating a Cluster

Creating a cluster at the beginning of each chapter allows us to jump into any part of the book without worrying whether there is a requirement to meet from previous chapters. It also allows us to pause between chapters without stressing our laptops by running a VM that is not in use. The downside is that this is the boring part of every chapter. Therefore, the talk stops here. Let's get it over with.

All the commands from this chapter are available in the ( Gist.
cd k8s-specs
git pull
minikube start --vm-driver=virtualbox
kubectl config current-context  

The code was updated, the cluster is up-and-running, and we can start exploring Deployments.
