Everyone keeps telling you that containers need orchestration, but you’re not so sure; maybe they could go for some light jazz? Or maybe serverless is here to save us from the tyranny of (virtual) machines, but meanwhile somebody’s gotta kuber some netes, and it’s likely to be you. Let’s take a walk through the cloud native landscape and talk about what’s new, what’s next, and what you need to get started with Kubernetes right now (before sentient machines have a chance to destroy us all).
