Hello everyone, Sudhanshu Dasgupta here. I am intern at Layer5 There is something exciting i need to share: The CNCF will soon announce the Cloud Native Playground: https://play.meshery.io. The drag-and-drop interface and real-time multi-user editing is really neat. We’re offering early access to select individuals to try the playground and offer feedback on their experience. Would you like access to the beta?

I just learned about GitHub’s support for Mermaid diagrams embedded in markdown, and let me tell you, life changing https://github.blog/2022-02-14-include-diagrams-markdown-files-mermaid/

Include diagrams in your Markdown files with Mermaidattachment image

Mermaid is a JavaScript based diagramming and charting tool that takes Markdown-inspired text definitions and creates diagrams dynamically in the browser.

We’ve spent a fair bit of time trying to get this working for #terraform graphs, but unfortunately, haven’t been able to find the right balance. Either too much detail or too little.

Hey wave - Quick Database question - I’m deploying an application in a “multi-instance” architecture (each customer has their own instance of an application. The application is backed by a Postgres database (although the DB tech doesn’t really matter for this question)… In this model of deployment, what are people doing for database deployment? A database server each running on something like Kubernetes? A few large clusters with a database schema (and separate user) per instance with automation to create the user and schema? Something different?
