Kubernetes for personal projects? No thanks!

I believe that someone that is paying 5$ a month to run a side project shouldn’t be concerned about infra (yet). I would recommend you focus on what you are building. Every minute you are spending on improving the infra (for uses cases that you might not use), you could be spending on coding a new feature, fixing that bug that you’ve just discovered, or writing more content for your website.

Good points.
