Part 1: Building a Secure Azure Front Door For your Kubernetes Clusters
Join Brad McCoy and Ben Poh from the cloud engineering team @ Moula as they walk you through setting up an Azure front door that will sit in front of your Kubernetes Cluster. This is the first part of a 2 part series. In this part, we will be standing up Front Door, and then in the next part, we will be pointing it to their AKS clusters.

Creating an endpoint
Creating a backend pool
Creating a rule
Adding a custom domain
Creating rules engines
Creating a WAF policy for front door

Formerly an architect of physical buildings, I'm now transitioning into being a cloud architect for infrastructure - because why build one building at a time when you can impact a much larger group of people through technology?
I'm working as a Cloud Engineer with Moula, where my Azure, Kubernetes, and Terraform skillset is being put to good use.
