How is the Kubernetes controller model similar to a taxi driver? Why is Kubernetes so differently designed compared to similar systems? How has the second law of thermodynamics and randomness theory shaped Kubernetes design? How the shift from traditionally managing servers to using Kubernetes operators similar to the Industrial Revolution? This talk offers the audience a unique perspective into why Kubernetes is designed the way it is. Kubernetes is often described as designed from “decades of experience”, but it is not as often mentioned what that means in practice. Quite conversely, many newcomers to Kubernetes find it “too complex”. Why is it, or why is that the impression? After this talk, the audience can make sense out of why Kubernetes does what it does. This by learning the fundamental design philosophies of Kubernetes and cloud native through well-known phenomena and real-world analogies. With the right mental model, hopefully it doesn’t seem overwhelmingly complex anymore.
