Developers don’t buy anything, but they make other people buy things. We try to, once again, build a theory of how developers drive IT spend. Also: hotel shampoo bottles, Scottish vikings, and Kiwi slang.

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.

July 20th, 2019 | 1 hr 5 mins

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.

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.
