Why would a company buy Docker? With “near triple digit revenue,” perhaps there’s a good business model to match the interest in free, but, in turn, why would an acquirer want to pay for free? We speculate wildly, and without spreadsheets. Also, lots of people have been funded, there’s a new bundle of kubernetes releases, and we discuss t-shirts.

“Packaging,” let’s talk about it - still your beating heart, dear listeners! We discuss the news, eats, and entertainment from ChefConf and then dip into the news from the OpenStack summit.

Eating dumplings, it turns out, is more complicated than just sticking them in your dumpling hole, as Coté found out in Bangkok thanks to a Singaporean friend. We’re live-to-tape from DevOpsDays Jakarta this episode, just Coté and Matt Ray. We discuss the Pentagon’s stubbornness of (seemingly) picking just one cloud provider for their major cloud project and then have an oddly lengthy discussion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Talking about Facebook this week is inescapable, so we do, but in a rant-y kind of way. We also discuss Oracle’s plans to hire 10,000 more people in Austin, Solomon Hykes leaving Docker, and the Google/Oracle case around Java’s copyright.

Dropbox made $1.1bn last year, which is mind-blowing. What can we learn from the way Dropbox wiggled it’s way into so many people’s lives (11m paying users, it seems) versus competitors like Box? Well, probably a lot more than where Apple, Spotify, and Dropbox run their stuff in - or out! - of the cloud, a topic we also discuss. Also, sheep-skin shoes are hot, too hot. Also, something about dtrace and zfs, I don’t know - just listen to it.
