Streamlining Kubernetes development with Draft

by Volker Weber

Application containers have skyrocketed in popularity over the last few years. In recent months, Kubernetes has emerged as a popular solution for orchestrating these containers. While many turn to Kubernetes for its extensible architecture and vibrant open-source community, some still view Kubernetes as too difficult to use.

Today, my team is proud to announce Draft, a tool that streamlines application development and deployment into any Kubernetes cluster. Using two simple commands, developers can now begin hacking on container-based applications without requiring Docker or even installing Kubernetes themselves.

Open source. It's the new Microsoft.

Good to MS is moving over the open source world. Funny thing of Draft is, macOS and Linux are supported and Windows not yet.
A few years ago unimaginable.

I still think Windows will one day be considered by Microsoft as just another edge to the cloud, free of charge.

only reading this excerpt: is it layers on layers on layers?

(I hope that all of this still is manageable. I understand that we got away from assembler to higher level languages... so maybe this development on deployment-level is similar.)

You can think of containers as real shipping containers. Easy for the developer, easy for those who handle a few of them. When you need to control a freight terminal or a sipping company, you run into new problems that Kubernetes solves.

Draft is not a layer on top of that. It uses a developer tool chain to create a container and deploy it into the orchestrated container environment.
