  • The hater’s guide to Kubernetes

    Embracing Kubernetes for efficient deployment, the author outlines strategies for small teams at Jamsocket. With a focus on essential Kubernetes features, they stress the benefits of redundancy, load balancing, and code-based configuration. The blog details their usage at Jamsocket, steering clear of unnecessary components and outsourcing infrastructure management. The author recommends certain Kubernetes resources like Deployments, Services, CronJobs, and ConfigMaps while cautioning against hand-writing YAML, non-built-in resources, Helm, and local stack replication. Lastly, they advocate for a purpose-driven approach, using alternatives like Plane for interactive workloads if Kubernetes proves unsuitable.
