Get started with GitLab EKS Fargate Runners in 1 hour and zero code, Iteration 1

New blog post on the GitLab blog by Darwin Sanoy! Check it out here:

Just a note that I’ve just tried following this and it’s created things in us-east-2 despite my CloudShell being in ap-southeast-2

I’m still only part way through things and will revisit it tomorrow. We had 29 pending jobs when I started but of course the existing runners have caught up while I was doing this.

That said I still love the idea and am happy to wear a day or so of cost to test this out.

EDIT: The runner didn’t pick up any jobs, I’ll try again tomorrow if time permits.
