I understand there’s a few techy people on here so thought will ask, but it’s not really a technical question.
My computing experience is split between Linux/FreeBSD (UNIX-like) operating system administration on one side, and C#.NET over IIS over SQL development on another, with the system business domain being Manufacturing.
Newer versions of our systems are going cloud-based. Either Docker or Kubernetes, or serverless.
I’m no stranger to virtualisation and my infrastructure understanding is pretty strong, however I’m no genius. I’ve been doing plenty research and reading up on the above technologies, even had the apprentice at work try to explain it to me, and have a friend who is expert in it helping to explain it to me.
My question is, is all this new stuff really very complicated? Am I just stupid or am I right to feel overwhelmed when looking at newer software tech these days?
At least I’ve only wasted a fairly crappy saturday and not spent it on ebay bidding for shit I don’t need, so there is that.
