    The CEO now seeks help from Phutar Afrayughum, a psychic and extrasensory perception specialist who allegedly helped Google increase their marketshare in the messaging app market, and was also involved in developing the Material Design framework.

    Seems like a legit article :shrug:

      Yeah I thought it was satire until I read that. I can’t think of an explanation for Google’s product decisions in any other way

    I’ve got 20+ years of professional experience at all different levels. I can take an idea and turn it into a Docker image with fully automated CI/CD on myriad cloud platforms.

    K8s is still black magic to me.

      Just a system that deploys, injects configs, mounts dies, handles the networking based on configs and scheduling.

      It CAN get more complicated since it enables more advanced deployment types, but it can be simple.

      I run k3s on every computer of mine as a single node cluster now as an alt to running podman or docker.

          K3s is a distribution of Kubernetes that bundles in a few commonly used convenient tools. It’s fairly lightweight compared to vanilla k8s, and it’s simple to setup. It’s a great choice for experimenting and learning and also production ready when you’re ready to push it farther.

        I’d love to learn it, but my biggest hurdle has been getting a cluster actually running. Could you recommend a good tutorial?

          I don’t have a tutorial to recommend but starting to play around with Minikube myself, should skip the need for an actual cluster

          RancherDesktop if you want a dead simple way to spin up a k3s cluster with a GUI. All of the kubernetes tooling works on too. Works on Linux, Windows, and Mac (Intel and Apple SI).

          Rancher.academy had, at one point, been a really good resource, but I honestly just haven’t watched tutorial in a while for k3s/rke2 so I would be lying if I said I knew one.

        Yeah it’s like docker++. Somehow networking between pod is also easier than between container. Also with k9s and argocd it’s much easier to see the entire cluster.

      I enjoy K8s, even though it adds a lot of things that can (and will at some point) break. But at a certain scale it becomes worth it because some things become so, so easy.

        I can absolutely see the benefit for really huge deployments or complex, highly-available systems. I’ve even sort of used it in my job working with those things. But I’m still just running commands I don’t understand that some sysadmin gave me.

        Lucky 10000: It’s a pun. A quaver is a duration of a musical note in the UK, equivalent to a USA eighth note; a semidemihemiquaver is a sixtyfourth note, used to notate e.g. certain kinds of trumpet trills.

          It’s both of those, and a reference to Moana where the shiny crab calls Maui a “semi-demi mini-god”

    Yes, it’s satire.

    I read somewhere that Volkswagen has about 900 K8s clusters. I feel that there is a direct correlation between this and the quality of their shitty cars.

    Some on here once described the idea of an innovation budget. Basically you can do about 3 new things at once before you forget what the hell you are doing and that has made so much sense to me.
