Over this past fortnight I attended Kubecon + CloudNativeCon Europe
. I’ve used Kubernetes on a few large projects, but don’t turn to it day to day for my own projects due to the complexity it adds. The conference was something else, I found myself taken aback by the sheer number of products and sponsors within the ecosystem, surprised that they all exist.
After attending a few intermediate and beginner talks I left even more fervent in my belief that small businesses should choose the simplest infrastructure solution they can. It’s unlikely I’ll have problems on my own solo projects that require k8s anytime soon for example. My previous video “Should you outsource your DevOps?
” covers some of my thoughts in more depth.
In other news, lockdown is still easing in Wales - meaning we can all rush to the pub or cinema to enjoy indoor service from tomorrow - though it’s unlikely I’ll be going near many of them soon. It’s now so alien to think of visiting indoor places. It will be nice to be able to enjoy a holiday away from home though.
