Personally I’m more in line with a lot of the comments on hackernews. They replicated a lot of Kubernetes architecture to build their own, which introduces this custom bespoke container orchestration and infra buildout system. Most enjoyable was this comment, quoted below:
We are talking about 37Signals here. This is the company that, when faced with the problem of making a shared to-do list application, created Ruby on Rails. And when they decided to write up their remote working policy, published a New York Times bestselling business book.
This is not a company that merely shaves its Yaks. It offers a full menu of Yak barber services, and then launches a line of successful Yak grooming products.
