    A small UX suggestion: please let me type out the values for memory/cpu.

      Noted. Thanks for sharing

        This. f*ck’n sliders.

        Really great web page, thank you!

        Many are really starting to see Terraform become a quite intensive chore, I usually say once you get passed the first 100 lines it’s all downhill from there. Ultimately I don’t see Pulumi (and CDK for that matter) solve this fairly labor-intensiveness, but rather offer an alternative that doesn’t required RTFM’ing on how to do counts, lookups, etc. in HCL.

        Crossplane is very, very neat. Especially for an organization with a bunch of Kubernetes and manifest automation experience. There’s a few other tools out that that take Kubernetes-esque api resources such as eksctl and cluster-api. However again, with more customization of the ‘out-of-the-box’ resources, the more verbose that’ll become. I’m Personally interested to see how this space grows

          Post feels a little bit like an ad for last9; would prefer to see more in-depth questioning and theorizing around observability.

            Those IEx QoL changes are the highlight of my week

              I think the one thing that isn’t really spoke about is that the points in this blog are completely correct using Kubernetes. The main points against this (as also highlighted in the comments) is about maintaining it. But I do think the author has a valid point, and when paired with managed k8s solutions it can be quite compelling experience.

                You should check out ServeTheHome’s Project TinyMiniMicro series - they run through a bunch of usually old enterprise thin clients and review their usage as a suitable homelab node

                  The first time I saw this I found it quite sensationalist? I wonder if they’ve spent the past year actively ripping out Go and replacing it with Rust

                  1. 2

                    I assume the DC is based in the U.S. based on their rent-to-own shipping comment, but they do not explicitly state the location of the DC.

                    Are there plans to expand in future into other regions? I’d be good to hear some more details and plans, once out of BETA

                      make the long drive to our Sacramento co-location

                      It’s mentioned in the setup time section. I assume this means Sacramento, CA, which is indeed in the US.

                      I really, really value the feed, topics, and explore parts of GitHub. It lets me navigate around projects and discover what people are building, discover new tools, and existing projects that align with my use case.

                      I’m yet to find this sort of network effect anywhere else, hell even GitLab as an alternative of GitHub isn’t as rich here. It makes me think if we moved to a more i-dont-need-github approach of self hosting, will we end up with a Git source aggregator to enable project discovery?
