What is Backstage? What does Backstage do? What does Backstage not do? Why would you use Backstage?
Ben educates Coté on what Backstage is. Coté is always thinking that new tech does more than it actually does, and he eagerly de-scopes his inflated expectations with Ben’s wiseness.
What is a Service Mesh? And Why Would You Want One?
The three of us are back to discuss what a service mesh is and why it exists as a stand-alone thing. The result we come to is that you want this kind of network control and management as its own layer, not something that’s built into the stack.

A Developer Perspective on Developer Experience, also, COBOL, with Paul Kelly
”75% of IT and business executives say that their companies’ ability to compete is directly related to their ability to release quality software quickly” reads a recent Forrester Consulting report. If that’s the case, why are so many developer in large organizations have a bad developer experience? Paul Kelly wrote up the case for good DevEx and what it looks like for developers on the VMware Tanzu blog recently. In this episode, Cora and Coté talk with him about the blog. Paul also wrote two books on Visual COBOL so, naturally, we open up by talking about COBOL. Why did we ever need more?

Interesting, thoughtful discussions about tech and people
I just finished the episode about HR at Pivotal, and really enjoyed it. The interviewers and guest had a lot of good, smart perspectives about how to treat employees and customers, and it was really interesting to hear what Pivotal is doing in the HR space. I've enjoyed previous episodes as well, and the guests are well-chosen. Audio quality with the guests has not always been the best, but they're understandable and it's worth listening to.
Bad Audio Bad Host
Terrible audio in almost all of the episodes. Host calls everyone GUEST instead of by their name.
Long time listener, first time caller
I’ve listened to every episode at least once, and several of them multiple times. Many of my favorite speakers appear in these episodes! I don’t always agree! But it’s so easy to listen to opposing views when they are supported with great data and stories!
