Unstableness of core technology stack. The more developers are there, the more complicated architecture they create that often doesn’t give any significant value besides what if something goes wrong ?

What if you make mistake ?
What if power goes down ?

I feel I am last optimistic thinking software developer on this planet.

I feel that those tools just try to give some sort of power to the management over developer free mind.

Creatures like multicloud, cloud, k8s I feel that it’s just beginning not the end of road. And this beginning is a wrong turn.

It’s just another vendor lock in.

But I might be wrong.

    It can be. Multi-cloud is a buzzword that's only prevalent among companies that missed the cloud boat and are desperately trying to bail water and get in on it.

    To some degree it's nice from my perspective to be able to ship a sandbox and not really care about the target system, which is where containers are for me. K8s is just one option for handling that orchestration, and at this point they're all portable.

    Vendor lock-in is down to how much SaaS you consume and how specialized those products are. I can move from EKS to Azure in an hour so without any real issues. I also don't tightly integrate with AWS-specific services. If it's more effort to migrate than changing a connection string and some data migration, I don't opt into it.

    The one thing I do lock myself into is terraform and my infra scaffold. It works basically everywhere, from my raspberry pi cluster up.

    There's always trade offs.

    I heard IBM has a solution for that

    @SortOfTested yeah maybe but you still need some container registry.

    At the same point there’s lots of new languages like rust, golang, julia, kotlin, swift, typescript, nim to name a few and some parts are in one language some are in other.

    I don’t know if it’s good move either.
