Netflix for developers: Honeypot publishes documentation on Kubernetes

How did Kubernetes really originate? The first part of the two-part documentary takes a look back at the 2000s when a group of Google developers started toying with the idea of ​​their cloud project. Amazon was really up front with AWS and leadership in the cloud business seems insurmountable. The launch of Docker, a series of creative ideas, some “happy coincidences” and last but not least, Google’s final business decision brought Kubernetes into the open source community, as the Alphabet subsidiary made its way into the cloud services and cloud marketplace with some competition.

The first part of the documentation will appear on January 21, 2022 at 6pm (CET) on .cult, a content platform from Honeypot. The second part is scheduled to follow a week later on January 28. The IT Careers Portal has been providing developer-specific content in the form of documentation, articles, and podcasts for developers for about two years. In the current release, many prominent industry experts as well as Kubernetes and cloud developers have their say, including:

  • Eric Brewer, Vice President of Infrastructure and Google Fellow, Professor at UC Berkeley
  • Tim Hawkin, Principal Software Engineer for Kubernetes and GKE Google Cloud
  • Kelsey Hightower, Employee Developer Advocate for Google Cloud Platform
  • Craig McClouchy, Vice President of R&D VMware, Ex-Google
  • Chris Anisczyk, CTO Cloud Native Foundation (CNCF)
  • Sarah Nowotny, Open Source Work and Azure, formerly at Google
  • Arno Porteri, founder of Echoes HQ, former Docker

Kubernetes: The Documentary – Part 1

More about Kubernetes and the project can be found in a blog entry on Honeypot.cult.

The idea of ​​coordination emerged during the coronavirus pandemic and is now bearing fruit. For example, director Ida Bechtel wanted to portray the lifestyle of the tech scene and tell “developers untold stories.” In their videos, Honeypot authors talk about unconventional tech jobs, their own projects, but also frontier experiences with medication, health, and burnout.

So far, .cult has featured mini-series about the daily lives of developers in individual cities like Munich, Berlin and Paris (Dev-Cities), background films on open source projects (like GraphQL and Vue.js) and portraits like the one around the back of React boilerplate – Pioneer and GitHub Max Stoiber. According to the director, the goal of the series is to make the faces and stories behind the technology tangible.

More information about the video documentaries can be found on the ritual website. Anyone who wants to watch the new series or other developer movies will also find what they are looking for on YouTube.

IT job platform Honeypot, founded in Berlin in 2015, specializes in recruitment for the technology and IT industry. In order to protect job-seeking IT talent from headhunters, for example, Honeypot applies the reverse-matching principle: companies that want to find employees through the portal first undergo a capacity test. With so-called reverse hiring, companies have to apply to developers.

Matching for job seekers and job applicants is determined by specific preferences, as is the case with a dating platform, and companies receive a pre-selection (batch) of suitable professionals to whom they can apply as employers through filters. Those contacted initially remain largely anonymous and can then actively engage with the offered job.

According to its CEO, Dr. Since last year, Philipp Goos no longer has a commission model, but through contributions from companies that hire employees via Honeypot. The platform is free for IT professionals. The platform’s staff must be particularly diverse, with more than 20 nationalities represented among the 70 “inventors” who are interested in matching and advice. According to the platform, about 45,000 developers are currently actively registered with Honeypot.
