Working with WSL and AKS

Introduction I find I am working with  Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) more and more recently and I thought I would share a few tips and snippets of code I have found useful. For reasons I will explain shortly I have started using the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) as my main way of managing AKS.  If you are starting out with AKS I hope you will find some of these hints and tips useful.
