Here's where the magic happens:
What is FART stack?
I recently got laid off from my job as a DevOps Engineer. If you're familiar with the industry, you know that Kubernetes is the "new" and current hotness. Lots of companies expect you to have experience with it and I don't. Right after I was laid off, I purchased a course on Udemy to teach myself Kubernetes. This project was started on Saturday July 16, 2022 and brought to its current state on Sunday July 17, 2022.
The project is simply a website built with Flask, Apache, Redis, and TypeScript. Apache sits in front of Flask directing traffic while Flask pulls its data from Redis and renders a template generated by TypeScript. All of this has been turned into Docker containers and deployed on a Kubernetes cluster that I built myself, not a Kubernetes cloud service and is accessible to the public via a domain name at https://fart-stack.io
The functionality itself is not impressive, nor is it the point of this project. The impressive part, in my opinion, is going from 0 Kubernetes experience to a complete up and running project deployed on Kubernetes in less than 24 hours.
What is a tech stack or stack?
In the tech industry, a "tech stack" or "stack" is simply a list of software/technologies that were used in order to build something.
A popular stack to operate a web server, for example, is called the LAMP stack. All this means is that the server was built/powered by
Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP/Perl/Python.
Why would/should I use FART stack?
What a terrific question. The answer is you probably shouldn't. I'm simply a guy in my mid 30s and I still think farts are hilarious.
What advantages does FART stack provide over other mainstream tech stacks?
Absolutely none that I can think of.
