The hidden costs of Kubernetes and Cloud Native  ↦

Kubernetes has won and the cloud is a moving target. But, one thing that often gets lost in the mix with all the Cloud Native talk is the productivity costs associated with keeping up.

In the US alone, over 70% of enterprises have adopted or are currently adopting cloud-native architecture, causing a surge in developers who are trying to learn the stack.

It’s called the “cutting edge” for a reason…

Staying on the cutting edge…one critical area of productivity loss is keeping up with all the changing technologies.

Cloud-native architecture is still being developed and learning the latest technologies is a moving target. While at the same time, most computer science and software engineering programs don’t delve into the heart of these technologies. At best, graduates will have limited experience working with a handful of these cloud technologies…

Depending on your perspective or seat at the table, these hidden costs could be a good thing.
