Can you fly that thing?

September 10, 2020

I was struggling just tonight to explain to my wife the incredible impact of using Docker, containers and the power of the modern toolchain.

I was trying to put it across in the language of 10000 hours and effortlessly achieving mastery of a complex system.

Her: “oh… like that scene in the Matrix?”

Nailed. It.

If you are a server, getting a matching environment and capabilites *can* be done manually, like Gladwell’s 10k hours…

But you can also be like Trinity:

Neo: “Can you fly that thing?”

Trinity: “Not yet”

***downloads a complete image of the skills and abilities required***

Trinity: “Let’s go”

win / win…
