i feel like theres just a certain gender of software that is like "we ❤️ open source | built with ❤️ go | your local enterprise-core uwu devops glassmorphism microsoft-core æzure.io smol startup | free software | request demo | please pay for our cloud subscription | $9.99/mo | scalable | built with ❤️ love | plug-and-play kubernetes integration"
yes im subtooting træfik. youre going in the "i do not wish to touch the wacky enterprise-core stuff" pile
sorry but everything about this kind of software is just like "how do we appeal as hard as possible to the 'i love capitalism i think we should make more capitalism' type of guy" and its the worst first impression when my intent behind using software is "solving problems i have" and not "adding another pointless layer to my ever-growing shiny tech stack to make the investors horny"
this is the capitalist equivalent of a hypothetical OOP programmer who instead of just initializing an integer variable normally creates a IGenericInitializationFactory interface and then creates an IntegerInitializationFactory class that then creates a static object where the only field is a number
@AgathaSorceress This is actually the best analogy for the modern containerisation and clusterisation nonsense stacks I have ever seen
Like, where you could have an RPi serving your website with nginx, you instead stick it on an AWS instance and run it in Docker managed by Kubernetes because that's what's hip and cool in the Professional®️ Developer™️ Community©️ currently
toot.party is a generic Mastodon instance open to queer people and allies. I try to make it as much a safe-space as I can, but then it's a collective effort.
