Architecture Weekly #58 - 17th January 2022
Welcome to the new week!
Each technology has its adoption curve. It starts being a bit rough, edgy, but shiny and entertaining for the brave people. Crossing the popularity chasm has to get more polished and easier to use for the majority. Did that already happen for Kubernetes? It's an interesting use case. Its learning path is steep. You need to learn a lot before effectively using it. However, it's already widely adopted. My personal take is that soon we'll have a bigger abstraction built on top of the Kubernetes. It'll be still used but internally in the infrastructure. Cloud providers are already making it easier to use. Frameworks like [DapR](https://docs.dapr.io/operations/hosting/kubernetes/kubernetes-overview/) are potentially something similar to what I have in mind. Still, it's worth learning Kubernetes.

Speaking about failures and resolutions, I told you about the Faker.JS issues last week. The community stood up, and we have a solution hopefully:
