"Those tools have the most value when you have a lots of applications to deploy" ❤️
"Microservices come with a tremendous amount of overhead. And most companies should consider building what would be traditionally described as a monolithic application and get really good at that before considering a new architecture pattern that may come with a lot more requirements than what they're currently doing." ❤️

"Docker and Kubernetes are not solution to your scalability problems" ❤️

Yep, when you look at tech blogs (netflix, amazon, uber, ...), you can see the amount of pain they've been through!
