    Episode 176- Let’s do the time-warp again! (Part 2)

    Episode 176- Let’s do the time-warp again! (Part 2)

    For the first Roaring News episode of the year, we decided to look back at 2019 to discuss the stuff we found noteworthy and perhaps take a chance at predicting what the next year will bring. We actually had so much fun recording this, we went way over time, so we decided to split this one into two parts. Episode 174 had the first part of the discussion and here is part two, bringing it home.































    We've meandered over a large number of subjects in this episode, so no summary for this one! :D

    Episode 175- Stackoverflow Developer Survey Results 2019

    Episode 175- Stackoverflow Developer Survey Results 2019

    A few episodes ago, we discovered the Stackoverflow Developer survey from 2019. Now even though it's been a while since the results were published, we found some of the results quite interesting and timeless enough to dedicate an episode about it.































    In case you are wondering about the untimeliness of the "cyber-truck with unbreakable windows" reference at 25:50, we originally intended to release this episode a couple of months ago in 2019, but then we recorded the truly excellent series with Rodolphe Dutel on remote working and decided to publish those episodes first. This inevitable meant delaying this episode to, well, now. :)







    In this hour long episode, we pick and choose the survey results that we found surprising, remarkable, weird or otherwise worth mentioning and give our view on the how and why.







    And of course, as you are by now accustomed to, your co-hosts definitely did not meander and go of topic... At all... Honestly...

    Episode 173- Remote Working: The way of the Future? (Part 3)

    Episode 173- Remote Working: The way of the Future? (Part 3)

    In the effort to hire the best candidates, more and more companies are transforming into distributed organizations where remote working is the way to go. As with any emerging technology, many businesses are still trying to figure out how to make this work and on the other side of the fence, potential employees are looking for guidance on what to expect. Your co-hosts have been working remotely for some time and we are joined by Rodolphe Dutel, founder at Remotive.io for a really deep and extensive discussion on everything related to remote working and distributed companies.































    In this three part series with Rodolphe, we are trying to get to the bottom of the whole "is remote working good or bad" issue. For people who are not working remotely, the prospect can be exciting or just down right scary. For businesses that want, or need to embrace the distributed paradigm, it can be equally daunting.









    Rodolphe has been "helping Tech professionals go remote" for over five years now and we are very happy that he agreed to be on the podcast to share his extensive knowledge and expertise with this subject.

    Episode 172- Roaring Special: KubeCon+CloudNativeCon & AWS re:Invent

    Episode 172- Roaring Special: KubeCon+CloudNativeCon & AWS re:Invent

    Our roving word traveling reporter Dave spent some time at Kube+CloudNativeCon ane AWS re:Invent and in today's News special, we're discussing the differences and similarity between these events. We're not going to cover any of the sessions, but rather talk about the conferences.

































    For creators...







    Taking place twice a year, once in the US and once in Europe, we feel this conference is a good fit for people that want to find out what is new in the world of cloud and, actually, open source in general.







    We briefly compare this event with the pure open source conferences like FOSDEM and conclude that KubeCon+CloudNativeCon could just be the preeminent open source conference today.







    Though definitely not without it's faults (you;ll ned to listen to the episode to find out more), we do feel we can recommend attending this conference if you are active in this environment.











    For Consumers...







    Compared to KubeCon+CloudNativeCon, this conference is absolutely massive with over 60.000 attendees, sprawling over multiple monstrosities on the Las Vegas strip.







    With an obvious emphasis on AWS we feel this event is much more geared toward those that are deploying tech on public cloud infrastructure.







    Dave felt that attendees take advantage of this event to interact with AWS. Considering many of the visitors are spending important amounts of money with Amazon, this is not really surprising, but it is still remarkable.











    Controversy...







    Never a stranger to (may we say needless?) controversy, AWS appears to have controlled the media exposure with a heavy hand.







    There is an article on CloudPro.co.uk discussing how multi-cloud and the Pentagon JEDI contract were not to be discussed. But when we looked up the article to discuss it on this show, the article had mysteriously vanished from their site with the original URL now resulting in a "permission denied" error...







    Fortunately, Google cache still has a copy and for when that cache finally expires, we've decided to keep a PDF version for future reference. ;)
