This week we chat with Max Horstmann, a software developer at Stack Overflow. He details our company’s experience setting up a Kubernetes cluster, turning that into a managed service through cloud providers, and more recently, using Kubernetes to host what we call PR Environments. Based on this, Max argues that Kubernetes is no longer too challenging for startups to consider using early on.
