Mid-day, when I have time.
- Another webinar in the can: my analysis of our 2023 State of Kubernetes survey. I positioned it as input and guidance into doing your own Kubernetes stuff. My theory on Kubernetes is that everyone wants to do it - “it’s the future” - but very few apps are running in production. Gartner estimates that ‘by 2027, 25 percent of all enterprise applications will run in containers, an increase from fewer than 10 percent in 2021.'" If I wet-finger-in-the-wind it, what I get from that is that right now, in 2023, thee’s something like 12%, at best 15% of apps running in Kubernetes. That’s enough to be very meaningful, but it also means that we have many years of trial and error, discover, and benefits ahead. The 5 years of surveys we have are a good glimpse into what that will look like. Check out the talk. It’s a webinar, so you have to login, but, I mean: really, you want to see the talk, so just do it. You’ll get a copy of the actual survey and our paper on how to do platform engineering.
- I just took delivery of an ice machine. Ice at home is not a big thing in the Netherlands. Very few fridges have an ice maker and even restaurants can be very skimpy on their ice. I miss ice. The ice-pellet machines can’t be ordered here, so I’ve got a slightly weird one. Still, if it works well: just in time for Spring and Summer!
- We have a Software Defined Talk recording tonight. We record live/streaming on Wednesdays, post on Fridays. You can catch the stream on YouTube.
