Why you shouldn't build a Kubernetes Operator

Since its origins at CoreOS and flowering at Red Hat, the Operator pattern has seen lots of explication and promotion -- rightly so. It's a pattern for extending Kubernetes, built from key Kubernetes components and concepts. But it's not right for every application in every case. This talk will help developers make informed choices about when they do, and when they don't, need to extend Kubernetes to get the features their app needs.
