#268: Kubernetes has become the de facto standard for container orchestration, but its true strength lies in its API. Today, containers are prevalent, but tomorrow we might be dealing with a completely different runtime. The Kubernetes API, with its robust and flexible design, is poised to support these transitions seamlessly.

In this episode, Darin and Viktor talk about a few of the different ways that Kubernetes is currently being used and also where it might be headed in the future.
