About this Episode

It’s cloud magic time! We go over the evolution of the IaaS Gartner Magic Quadrant, or whatever it’s called now. Plus, is it so hard to do do enterprise sales? (Yes.) And too much commentary on umlauts, ASCII, and Munich bike bells.

Mood board:

  • CI/CD is this podcast’s VDI.
  • “Dude, I’ll read.”
  • It’s hot here.
  • Did those clothing-optional vegan hippies invite themselves over to your room a lot?
  • Ruled by actuarial tables
  • I need to look up what constitutes a swamp
  • Google cloud is people.
  • You can’t put the math back in the box.
  • Cee-star-o.
  • Bad things are bad.
  • You can be a low-value target and I’ll still draw a funny picture in your book.
