A lot of developers/engineers fail to understand the platforms that are right for their products or services. Perhaps, engineers feel that Google cloud compute is cool, so it is probably the way they should go or maybe Kubernetes is shiny, they should probably use it but the questions are,
Are you ready to scale?
Do you have intentions to grow fast?
Is this the right approach?
Is it just a portfolio website?
Understanding that we don't need to over-engineer our infrastructure is key. Know what you need and what should be deployed. This talk is trying to buttress a point on how you can get a fully functional app or service using the right infrastructure, get to understand the power of the cloud that hasn't been touched yet and know that it can be better than what we thought.
