Not quite what I expected. I thought this was approaching systems design from a development standpoint, but it’s more from a hosting/infrastructure standpoint. Specifically, it’s about using Docker, Kubernetes, and such to extend and change the functionality of existing systems.

I skimmed the second half of it, as it because obvious that it wasn’t really written for me. But I still learned quite a bit about what’s possible in the field, so not a total loss.
