Fiberplane's Collaborative Notebooks for Incident Management
Database giant Oracle added a container native CI/CD platform to its cloud portfolio when it purchased Wercker in 2017. Since the acquisition, Wercker founder, Micha Hernandez van Leuffen, started Fiberplane, for which he is the CEO. In this latest episode of The New Stack Makers podcast, van Leuffen discusses the different aspects of the development of the Wercker and how that has parlayed into his work at Fiberplane, which offers collaborative notebooks for resolving incidents. Alana Anderson, founder and managing partner, base case capital, offered input from an investment capital firm perspective as well.
Alex Williams, founder and publisher, and Joab Jackson, editor-in-chief, both of The New Stack, hosted this podcast.
Puppet's New Mission: Automating Cloud Native Infrastructure
An organization that has any ambitions or hopes to scale application deployments across cloud native environments is not going to get very far without automation.
From CI/CD support, increasing application deployment speed — often across different environments — and maintaining compliance and security, operations teams manually managing these processes is just not humanly possible after a certain point.
In this latest episode of The New Stack Makers podcast, Abby Kearns, Chief Technology Officer and head of R&D, and Chip Childers, Puppet Chief Architect, discussed what automation for infrastructure management for cloud native deployments means for Puppet and for the IT industry. Alex Williams, founder and publisher of TNS, hosted this interview.
Why Cloud Native Open Source is Critical for Twitter and Spotify
At last count, social media giant Twitter enjoys around 353 million active users, and streaming music service Spotify has 356 million active listeners. In both cases, open source tools and platforms for cloud native environments have served as the cornerstones for their tremendous growth.
In this latest episode of The New Stack Makers podcast, Spotify Senior Staff Engineer Dave Zolotusky, and Twitter Developer Experience Lead and Manager for Engineering Effectiveness Jasmine James discussed the role of open source software in their respective organizations. Katie Gamanj, ecosystem manager of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and Alex Williams, founder and publisher of TNS, co-hosted this interview.
Meet the DevSecOps Skillset Challenge For Cloud Deployments
There is much discussion about technology and tool gaps when organizations make the shift to cloud environments. However, a major — and often less-discussed — challenge is how to ensure that the DevOps team has the necessary skillsets to see the project through. Making sure that the right in-house talent and DevSecOps culture is in place to make the shift without exposing the organization's data and applications to security risks is especially critical.
In this The New Stack Makers podcast hosted by Alex Williams, founder and publisher of TNS, guest Ashley Ward, technical director, office of the CTO, Palo Alto Networks, discussed the associated DevSecOps skillsets challenges for cloud deployments.
What User Empathy Means at Google Today
It's said we can all stand to make improvements when it comes to empathy. In software engineering, empathy is required to create something that the end user can easily figure out; it's unacceptable to build something you think is great but expect customers to figure it out on their own, just because you think they should. Search engine giant, cloud services leader and Kubernetes creator, Google, realizes this.
In this latest episode of The New Stack Makers podcast, The New Stack Founder and Publisher Alex Williams and TNS News Editor Darryl Taft sit down with Google’s Kim Bannerman, program manager for Empathetic Engineering, and Kelsey Hightower, principal developer advocate, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), to discuss Google's Customer Empathy Program and end-user satisfaction.
Low-code, No-code Can Work for Cloud Native
The definition of “low-code, no-code” remains a subject of debate. For some, it is the ability for a so-called “citizen developer” who lacks the training and skills to develop software — to be able to rely on a platform to deploy code with the same level of competence as that of a professional software engineer. Others describe low-code, no-code as a way to rely on a platform that facilitates software development — while automating many of the tasks in a build — to both simplify the process for inexperienced developers and to save time and resources for experienced developers. In both cases in this increasingly crowded space, low-code, no-code makes the coding and software development process simpler and more automated as a result.
In the case of low-code, no-code platform provider gopaddle, the idea is to to “unleash the power of a no-code platform for modern applications.” How low-code, no-code can be applied to Go-centric applications running in cloud native environments was the main subject of this The New Stack Makers podcast with Vinothini Raju, founder and CEO, gopaddle as the guest. The New Stack founder and publisher Alex Williams and TNS news editor Darryl Taft hosted the conversation.
