Ever since Google made Kubernetes open-source in 2014, it has enjoyed incredible growth, helping businesses of all sizes to successfully manage their containers and ultimately make the most of all that our cloud native world has to offer. Individual users certainly initially led the charge with Kubernetes, identifying issues, and generally exploring the best ways to intelligently test, manage, and deploy workloads.

A couple of days ago, I was pleasantly surprised to suddenly see a tweet come in from Viktor Farcic. Viktor now works at upbound.io who developed Crossplane, and he also runs his own popular YouTube channel and co-hosts DevOps Paradox podcast. He’s well respected in the cloud native community. When I saw the tweet and noticed that Viktor had recorded a review of Civo on YouTube, I was just hoping he was kind to us...and I am pleased to say he was!
