  4. Are there any particular challenges or difficulties that you encounter when writing Kubernetes YAML files?
  5. Do you do any security analysis on containers before deploying them? If so, what tool do you use?
  6. Is there a designated person or team responsible for image creation and maintenance within your organization?


  1. Can you describe your general approach to debugging issues with your applications, including any tools that you use to aid the process or where you go when you have questions?
