Hi Jeff and Stephen,

In your book you use Docker Swarm for services orchestration.
Do you prefer it to Kubernetes or Mesos due to it's Docker native, simpler?

Also, the subject of Orchestration probably needs a separate cookbook.
Orchestrating services / micro-services brings many tasks to be solved.

Yes, Orchestration can and does fill entire books.  And if you're using Kubernetes, that book will age quickly.

I specialize in AWS and my preferred container orchestrator is ECS & Lambda.  

I wrote a whole series of blog posts contextualizing container orchestrator selection with the intent of helping people select the orchestrator that is right for them, starting with:
https://nodramadevops.com/2019/10/container-orchestrators-are-the-same-but-different-swarm/

That series covers Swarm, Kubernetes, ECS, and a general orchestrator selection strategy.

If you're using Kubernetes, you, too will age quickly.

OK, kidding. I like Kubernetes. But we recently covered a book on it where I whined at length about getting Kubernetes running when you don't have a cloud provider who pre-installed it for you.
