Cloud native with Saiyam - Ringing bells

Hi there, how are you doing? I feel that sometimes being too nice can work against you but that should not stop you from doing good. Life is a gift and I say that time and again because I know the value of it. I lost my brother last year and that did change me a lot. Not a day goes by when I do not think of him, I stay with my parents now and left many opportunities because life is more important than anything and I want to be with them when they need me the most. Why I am telling you all this? Life is full of problems and each one of us is fighting a different battle where one cannot understand the pain of others so there is no single path that can benefit all. You need to work for yourself, what works best for you, what gives happiness to you and then how you grow as a person in life. In short, figour own problems in your own way and win them.
Let’s get back to tech, so the past couple of weeks have been amazing as I delivered my first ever Kubernetes workshop - 4 hours and I got a great response from the community, which does make me happy :)
I am glad that I am in a space where I get to see, understand, use and provide feedback on the latest tech coming up in cloud native.
What did I do:
My Upcoming talks
  • Hashiconf global in LA - I will be doing a talk: A Mini-PaaS for Developers With Waypoint. I am so glad that I have one of the featured talks <3
  • DevOpsDays India - Happy to be one of the organizers and this will happen in person in Bengaluru, get your CFP’s in!!

DevOps is dead 💀, long live Platform Engineering!

1) Developers don't like dealing with infra
2) Companies need control of their infra as they grow

Platform Engineering (and Internal Developer Platforms) enable these two facts to coexist. Here's how:

Kubernetes basics explained by analogy 🧵

...or "How Kubernetes Just Repeats Good Old Deployment Patterns"

1. For a long time, people had been deploying services as groups of virtual (or physical) machines.

But VMs were often slow and bulky. Hence, not very efficient.
