Putting on a KubeCon, with Colleen Mickey
A small army of community volunteers is necessary to host a KubeCon, but behind them is a professional events team. Colleen Mickey is Director of Event Services at the Linux Foundation and is responsible for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon, as well as other events like Hyperledger Global Forum and cdCon. She talks to us about hosting, feeding and watering 10,000 people, as well as the change to virtual events.
We also bring the round-up of the KubeCon news, including our famous Lightning Round.

Service Level Objectives and Nobl9, with Brian Singer and Kit Merker
Brian Singer co-founded Orbitera, which was acquired by Google in 2016. During that process he met Kit Merker, who was a PM on GKE and the GCP Marketplace, and the two are now working togther on relability engineering startup Nobl9.

Weaveworks (part 2), with Alexis Richardson
We conclude our two-part conversation with Weaveworks co-founder Alexis Richardson, picking up when the company received Series A investment in December 2014.

Please be sure to listen to the first part before this one!
Weaveworks (part 1), with Alexis Richardson
We’re trying something new!
In Part 1 of a two-part conversation with Weaveworks co-founder Alexis Richardson, we have a wide ranging conversation about career choices, finance, founding and selling tech companies, and the dangers of being pigeon-holed based on the first project your company releases.
Next week we’ll finish the conversation by talking about Weave projects like Flux and Cortex, as well as their SaaS offerings, the founding of the CNCF, and whether Weave built the platform they set out to build when they started 7 years ago.
Best k8s podcast so far
Please keep going. Very nice format and content.
Really Wanted To Love This Podcast
Listened to my first episode, which was pretty good. It was an interview.
My second episode didn’t go so well. This podcast falls victim to my main peeve with some podcasts, hosts who are in a personal challenge to read through their bullet points as fast as possible, without pause and without context. That is not listenable, especially with such technical content. I tried but I kept rewinding and trying to re-listen, which defeats the point of the podcast entirely. If I wanted to read through bullet points as fast I can, I’d just go ahead and do that. In fact, I’ve just added the XML RSS feed to my reader. Unsubscribing from the podcast.
Great podcast for any SWE!
I have found this to be an incredible podcast that keeps me informed and also makes me rethink y current workloads for more modern and supported patterns. Bit of feedback that I would provide is that the episode references are great, but on iOS there are not episode numbers to correlate. Including episode number in title, or providing the date in reference may solve.
