A first-time listener, love the format. the link to triplebytes isn't correct! love the bio of David and how he describes it. I love it when the podcast gives enough attention to the people, not just the technology.

GREAT episode (first one I've had the chance to listen to).

THANK YOU, David, for confirming my hopes/ignorant belief that the Kubernetes movement is just not appropriate for many/most situations.

While I'm actively working to carve out slices of applications that can be offloaded to serverless functions, eventually moved into APIs, etc., it just feels silly to be going full-hog microservices architecture for what amounts to a simple perfectly-suitable-as-a-monolith application.

Excellent discussion.
