In order to demonstrate how to develop a new Cluster API provider we will use kubebuilder to create an example provider. For more information on kubebuilder and CRDs in general we highly recommend reading the Kubebuilder Book. Much of the information here was adapted directly from it.

This is an infrastructure provider - tasked with managing provider-specific resources for clusters and machines. There are also bootstrap providers, which turn machines into Kubernetes nodes.
