Containers have exploded in popularity in recent years. To help with the deploying, scaling, and managing of containerized applications, Brendan Burns co-founded Kubernetes - a production-grade container orchestration system. In this episode, Brendan shares how he and his co-founders came up with the idea, how they got started, and what containers mean for the future of Virtual Machines.
Working on the Red Hat Ansible Core team and the power of open source community
Adam got a Red Hat tattoo on his forearm even before working there because of his passion for the open source community. This episode explores why he fell in love with the open source community, as well as the contributions that he and his team have put forth into the Fedora project, Ansible, and OpenShift. We discuss why and how these tools have changed the way people work, and how they can be used with container technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes, and more.
Going from a monolithic app to microservices and building engineering teams
How do you go from having a monolithic application to microservices and how do you build teams and processes around increasing development velocity? In this episode, we find out with James Judd from Lucid Software.
How blockchain is helping sell unused cpu cycles and creating opportunities
Blockchain is probably the single hottest technology right now, and our guest today is using it for something you might not expect (hint: it’s not another cryptocurrency).

Using peer-to-peer technology to change the CDN industry
Peer-to-peer possibilities are now embedded in modern browsers thanks to technology like WebRTC. It enables browsers to talk with each other without needing any middlemen, like servers, to relay information. This has unlocked a number of fascinating possibilities, one of which we explore in this brand new episode. Shahar Mor from Peer5 joins us to explain how they are streaming data in a much faster and more scalable way than CDNs can do on their own.
Simplicity at scale with Simon Eskildsen of Shopify
Shopify is an impressive platform for a number of reasons. It runs a heavy load for customers that rely on uptime for their businesses to survive and thrive, it was one of the first large production workloads to run Docker, and they’ve got a lot of bright minds. Simon is one of those minds, and he joins us back for another episode to talk about migrating to the cloud, Kubernetes, maintaining a simple, scalable codebase while still delivering within deadlines, and the challenges of growing from a few dozen to a few hundred engineers. Those are just a few of the topics we cover - check out the episode to find out how Shopify does simplicity at scale.
