Coté has worked in the tech world a long time. He works at Pivotal and does things like make podcasts, write about the tech world, and talk at conferences. You know: papers...business papers.
Episode 188: The transit private/public partnership, and, yeah, still, of course, kubernetes shit of the week
July 20th, 2019 | 1 hr 5 mins
There’s a couple kubernetes announcements this week: we mostly talk about Pivotal’s, and a tad on IBM. Plus, maybe scooters are actually good for cities and compiling source code for your infrastructure software is probably a bad idea.

With IBM closing its acquisition of Red Hat, we discuss the changing mechanics of an enterprise software business. Why do we think the big clouds will have such an indefinite hold on market leadership when every past tech leader has been disrupted and fallen? Speaking of, Broadcom is tryin’ hard to become a portfolio company. Also, security sucks, Coté finds video chats annoying, and he can’t keep all the camera lingo in his head.

How do SLOs really work, and how do you find "the business"? The three of us couldn't get together this week, so we have an interview this week with Google's Nathen Harvey about SRE. We also talk about European egg hygiene.

With few exceptions (like NSX), infrastructure software has to be free and easy to check out and even use. All product management and strategy decisions flow from that. Usually. Except when they don’t. Also, developers don’t pay for anything, they trick ops into it. Maybe that’ll change in public cloud land, but who knows?

Do organizations ever just want to do a good job? Not really. Also, after looking through a new developer survey: Developers change what they use, but pretty much stay the same. Also, half of the, still don’t use build pipelines or issue trackers. When will these kids learn? And Coté explains why Nietzsche’s Eternal Return thing seems unhelpful.

Lowering your expectations on open source is a favorite topic of ours, so we return to it. Spoiler: people gotta make money somehow. Also, we explore inebriation in Amsterdam and other locales, Mary Meeker’s slide fest, public cloud outages vs. desktop computers, and better consumer identity management.

You can now pay open source developers directly, well, those in the closed beta. Seems like a good idea, really. Also, the Commonwealth and Friends club doesn’t like Huawei, and thought lords can be bores.

Salesforce synergizing at IBM and Red Hat, VMware buys Bitnami, and Linux Desktop market share analysis. Plus, pickles.

Putting together the M&A case for Docker, Inc., Microsoft Build, Google I/O, and Oracle’s cloud grudge. Also, dead pets and kids: no good answers.

Airports, the challenges of the CI/CD market, authentication woes.

With Matt Ray out sick, Coté and Brandon discuss what the Pentagon’s JEDI contract means for cloud vendors, PagerDuty going public and what exactly do developers need to know about Kubernetes. Plus, Coté offers parenting advice on how to handle the no “free drink refills” policy in Europe.

With Matt gone, Coté & Brandon speculate wildly about Google’s multi-cloud management announcement, Anthos. They should have just read the docs, but who has time for that?
April 5th, 2019 | 1 hr 4 mins
IBM Watson didn’t work so well in health care, maybe it was too early. Also, Chef goes full open source, with Apache 2. Meanwhile, Coté has to pay taxes in two countries.

There’s a new kubernetes, Oracle lay-offs, Zoom.US, and the problem with mainframe complainers.

SUSE is independent again, so we discuss what’s up with it and its uses. Open source, when mixed with business, is back once again: Coté craves some intellectual closer. Also, Google announced some big game platform thing. So. Chips?
