Do you know how to…
…wait for a Pod to be Running, or for a Deployment to be Available?
…"turn off and on again" a Deployment?  
…connect to a Service in a different Namespace when the client is hardcoded to connect to "db"?
… generate a YAML manifest without copy-pasting it from the docs or ChatGPT?
… switch between namespaces (or even clusters!) super quickly?
… get an image with (almost) any tool you need without having to write and build a Dockerfile?
If you answered "no" to any of these questions, then this talk is for you, since you'll see how to do all these things (and a few more). You're invited to a parade of tips, tricks, and techniques, to improve your productivity and reduce your frustration with Kubernetes!
