Hi, I'm Morgan. I work for Dine Trays and I'm a maintainer of the Captain project, which is a cloud native application lifecycle orchestrated and that also run conceive for their community. I'm really grateful that I get the answer to my questions really, really fast. So the community is really helpful if you have any questions, technical questions, questions around how the platform is working or how I can do something in the civil marketplace, which is one of my first touch points with the civil community. And for this it was great. So it has been great to work with Spective. I think my first touch point on sir, probably. I found it somewhere on Twitter and it actually caught my eye because the spin out time for new clusters was really interesting. So I gave it a try and the SBA Marketplace was the first thing I got in touch with SIBO to also list our open source project Captain on the Seba marketplace to make it easier for others to use our open source project directly on the CB platform without the need to read any installation instructions that we just won re installation and they're ready to go. My preferred tech stack on top of Kubernetes is obviously to run Captain, since I'm a maintainer of the project and I use it in my DayToday developer life. So for SIBO, I either do it directly on via the Kibo marketplace and solid directly on there, or I just experiment with it and spin up a couple of clusters in the install the Captain control plane on one cluster Captain execution plan goes on the other cluster. So that's basically what I make sure that it always runs on my clusters. And even if it's just a very short running clusters, that's usually the stack that I'm running on, and then I have a couple of different demo applications also from the CTF ecosystem, like the Potato Head, it usually goes on one of my clusters, but it's mainly mistake I want. So for me in my day to day development launch time of new clusters really help because I don't have to wait a couple of minutes. It's only one or two minutes for new clusters, and it also gives me the possibility to recreate clusters really fast, so I can always start from scratch. I know exactly what my new cluster will look like, and I can even easily spin up a couple of clusters, so at the same time I don't have to wait for them for more than two minutes, and especially basically for kind of temporary development departments. For me, this is great because also I don't have to leave the cluster running. I can always spin it, spin it up and tear it down with the help of probably even across playing or other combinated projects that helped me this. And so that really, really helps. And I was beginning. I was really amazed how fast it is to spin up the plaster in Cuba. I think my favorite feature is in total is that simplicity. There is not a lot of different things I have to take care of whenever I want to create a cluster. So it's basically a pic. It's like two clicks. I usually go with the UI approach, not too much with the CLI, so I'm not an expert amount on deck, but then to kill a feature for me is the simplicity when it comes to creating clusters, when it also comes to building it's very transparent. I always know exactly right now what will be the cost of my trusters at the very end of the month. And this is great for me to kind of get a feeling how many clusters we want to create, how long you want to run them to be within the budget that I had reserved for my tests. So the simplicity in total is for me, is the absolute killer feature. So I think that's a tricky one because I'm already quite satisfied with what Zero provides probably some additional features in the marketplace to be able to test the application that I put on the marketplace and the integration to test them myself to kind of have a temporary environment, even graded by CBO running on CBO and test the integrations there. But on the other hand, the CBO community was very helpful in getting our captain marketplace. The option is listed in the super marketplace, but probably doing kind of a sales service and the testing before listening. Anything in the marketplace is suppose to be helpful.
