Over the past year, the adoption of Cluster API (CAPI) has been growing with more end-users using it to provision their clusters. And increasingly it’s being adopted inside commercial products and other OSS projects (e.g. EKS-Anywhere). With this growth comes an increase in the variety of the Cluster API Providers you can choose from. What if none of the existing providers suit your use case? Perhaps you want to bring your own hosts or integrate with a custom infrastructure provisioning mechanism. If that's the case, this talk is for you. Come learn from the maintainers of existing CAPI providers on how to get started creating your own provider. It’s hard but at the same time easier than it sounds. Although every provider has unique considerations in its offering, there is a lot of commonality when it comes to writing a provider. This talk will highlight the common patterns, develop and debug workflows, and common pitfalls / gotchas to take into account when writing your own provider.
