Hi Joseph,

Thank you for doing this AMA! How do you see the Kubernetes landscape evolving in 2019? Last year seemed to be about Kubes-as-a-Service offering from multiple cloud providers. Do you think eventually the easiest play will be to not roll your own cluster, and use the hosted offerings?

K8s is simultaneously becoming harder to learn, easier to run and more complex. Fun times!

Hosted offerings are maturing, but as are installers, products and many embedded offerings.

I expect more adoption exponentially across the board and K8s continuing to be abstracted away by higher level Operator tooling APIs, control planes, functions called via code itself/compilers and product centric services that totally hide the complexity.

K8s will become the replacement for EC2 style computing, but create far more efficiency and benefits than the cost of its complexity demands.
