You dont have to maintain the Cluster yourself, use a managed one e.g. GKE.

Or EKS.

EKS is not bad but you still need to maintain the master node

@birdayz yeah I know :)
The point is that if you really need kubernetes, or you just wanna use it just cause it looks cool 🤓

It is not just this or that. There is something between "it just looks cool" and "i really need it". Many people are very productive with k8s and its tooling, so there is little overhead to it.
