back to article The Hurt Docker: Mystery Hub repository, website outage leaves fuming devs unable to deploy containers

      Arguably, it's too reliable already. If it broke more often people would be thinking more carefully about the underlying model. It does seem to be a characteristic of cloud services that they manage to keep the basket in the air right up to the point you've deposited all your eggs.

    Not surprised. I had to read their code a couple of years back. Horrible. Their use of Go is no doubt a big part of the problem. Go is UNREADABLE to anyone but the original author.
