Insiders Update: 5th July 2019 - RPi 4 & Kubernetes
Happy #FaaSFriday! Thank you for being my sponsor and welcome to your insiders update
Raspberry Pi / Kubernetes
Now that RPi4 is available, should you still install on RPi3 which only has 1 GB of RAM?
It looks like Pod Security Policy will be deprecated in a future Kubernetes release. It's a shame that this feature won't go GA. Let the Kubernetes community know what you think?
If you're an advanced Kubernetes user, then you may have heard of Flagger by @stefanprodan. It now supports traffic-shifting with Linkerd2, so that you can have a light-weight service-mesh and progressive delivery at the same time.
#FaaSFriday on Twitter and let me know which are your favourites on Slack or Twitter, you know how to reach me :-)
Mine is the 24-node RPi cluster using only 48W
The top 5 tweets will get a free shipment of SWAG worldwide.
First gold sponsor
We have our first gold sponsor for openfaas.com which I'm really excited about.

New blogs and conference CfP
Here's my 5 ways to share about your usage of OpenFaaS.
One of my ways is to submit conference papers, especially to KubeCon, San Diego which will be in November. The call for papers closes on Friday so if you want to get in and would like some help, please get in touch ASAP.
We have a new release of faas-netes, I would recommend upgrading to 0.8.1, especially if you use additional labels on your functions. This also caused functions not to show after the first commit on OFC and has been patched there too.
We noticed some high CPU usage due to a compatibility setting for Istio and Docker Swarm, when we toggled this idle functions used almost no CPU at all. If you'd like to try this then grab the latest helm chart or YAML and update.
IngressOperator get Traefik support! We also have an open issue here if anyone wants to get their hands dirty with Go and CRDs.
OpenFaaS Cloud secrets documentation - I've rewritten the secrets documentation and I hope it's a lot clearer now, on how you can attach secrets to the Community Cluster or your own.
We need your input
- I think the
faas-clishould have a way to list which templates are needed - see the issue
- I think we should have SDKs available to interact with OpenFaaS, but what should they cover and which language do we need to start with? Let us know on GitHub - Story: OpenFaaS SDKs for each language #1246
Try it this weekend
Ruby labs for use on Civo Cloud - through OpenFaaS Ltd, I ran an on-site workshop for OpenFaaS in Stevenage for Ruby developers. The content is available for general use. You'll learn how to setup a new VM on Civo's Cloud with k3s and you can claim 50 USD free credit too, not bad for a weekend project!
If anyone needs to book time with me through OpenFaaS Ltd, I can now accept Stripe and PayPal or an invoiced arrangement if we have a commercial relationship already.
You can always reach me and the community on Slack - https://docs.openfaas.com/community/
