Customer ReviewsSee All
Good resource, but...
Helpful resource, but, like anything else, this could use improvement. Some suggestions:
--please level the audio. Sometimes the different speakers have hugely varying volume levels.
--please let the people being interviewed get more air time. Brian is good at this; Aaron perhaps less so.
--consider getting up front: what the product is, why is it being offered, what distinguishes it from others, what's the tech infrastructure/stack used and why. Usual bio summary from the person is helpful, too.
--consider asking at some point what emerging tech the person finds interesting, the next Docker...
--consider asking if the person had any interesting failures or directions that didn't pan out and why
--if a product is dependent on another product, normalized nagios data for instance, how does the product cope with changes in the upstream product?
--consider asking how the company deals with technical debt. Even startups have this issue.
--consider asking about the barriers to selling to enterprise and how they're dealing with it
--consider asking how much, if any, of the product is based on open source and if there's an effort to contribute any of then non proprietary IP to open source
Always Good, Tpopical and Succinct
Cloudcast always has useful and informative episodes for a survey of what is going on in cloud related subjects. It is recorded and edited with an eye on professionalism and does not just fill time with blather. If you have linited time to listen to podcasts on tech/cloud related subjects this is a good one to add to your list.
Google Cloud 2018
I’m a first-time listener. I just finished the 2017 Recap/2017 Prediction episode from 12/26/17. Towards the end, there was a quick discussion on Google Cloud and efforts they may/should make in 2018 if they’re going to appeal to the Enterprise.
I’m a Tech Recruiter, and I interviewed recently with the GC team. I’d love to share some detail around this topic, but I can tell you that GC was hiring a team of recruiters for Product-focused and Sales Engineer-focused hiring initiatives. By “initiatives,” I mean that they have goals in the hundreds, globally for selling GCP (Google Cloud Platform) with specific target markets, including heavy Asia-focus. These efforts were Q4 2017 - Q2 2018 and beyond. That’s a massive resourcing initiative, and it shows that they’re ready to pull up their “big boy pants,” and try to close the double-digit market share gap that they lag behind Azure, let alone AWS.
