    K8s = too complicated

    Is it just me or is kubernetes getting more and more complicated?

      "is kubernetes getting more and more complicated?"

      Generally, K8s is seen as a heavy duty solution. For personal or small grade stuff, Docker might be more your thing - I run pretty much everything (toolchains, linux tools, etc) in Docker containers on a personal laptop.

      It keeps tools and dependencies separate, and if I screw up one container, the others work fine. This is useful when playing with cross-compilers or tools with particular dependancies.

      (I used way BITD to do a lot of Arm cross-compiling on an x86 box, and won't forget the time I overwrote my base GCC installation with 32-bit Arm binaries. Once bitten, etc.)

      I see k8 belonging to the infra team and not the developers. Devs create the software to run in docker. Infra setup the clusters and k8 to run it.

        A new scheme?

        And if you combine the two flavors of users together in one team you get a rough idea of devops.
