Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Tell us a little bit about your background, and what makes you passionate about helping analytics teams improve their businesses? 

Topic 2 - Can we start by talking about how you think about Analytics teams vs. Data Science teams vs. AI/ML teams? Are these different only in name, or are their functional/skill differences, or places where one group is more appropriate than others? 

Topic 3 - Let?s talk about Analytics in the context of workflows. Are you seeing it still be mostly a business analyst ?offline? function, or are more workflows and applications introducing more ?real-time? analytics capabilities? 

Topic 4 - We talk a lot on this show about DevOps and Developer Productivity, in the context of more frequently changing applications. How does that apply to Analytics groups? Where do they have bottlenecks today? How do they get around those bottlenecks?

Topic 5 - How do platforms like the Alteryx Analytics Platform help teams improve their analytics velocity and productivity? And how much do you find that the right tools help improve how teams organize, or do they need to be well organized to best take advantage of the right tools? 

Topic 6 - Can you give us some examples of the types of results that companies often achieve when they better align their analytics teams to self-service and automated environments?

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. You?re both really well known in the DevOps communities, but give us the TL;DR of your backgrounds for anyone not familiar with your work. 

Topic 2 - Whether people are tired of the term ?Digital Transformation? or not, change is a huge part of our industry, especially as it relates to corporate culture and organization. What?s the framing for that type of discussion in 2021? 

Topic 3 - I?ve heard you both say ?technology is easy, people are hard?. How do you think about these conflicts of transformation, whether people?s individual motivations aren?t always aligned to a business goal? 

Topic 4 - One of the biggest differences between existing companies and start-ups is the level of self-service that they build around their systems. The self-service systems allow experimentation, allow automated deployments, etc. But is there a way to bring a concept of automated governance to these end-to-end models? 

Topic 5 - Oftentimes transformations are aligned with cloud-native technologies, cloud-native apps. The model of Ops in a cloud-native world is different. What are some of the areas you both focus on to make cloud-native Ops successful, or better aligned to the technology part of transformations? 

Topic 6 - What are some of the best and worst ?getting started? steps that you see various groups (or companies) take in their transformation journeys?

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. We?ve known each other for a while. You?ve had tremendous success in Leadership, Product and Marketing roles in the past. Tell our audience a little bit of your background and what ultimately brought you to your role at CEO of Observe. 

Topic 1a - For people that aren?t familiar, what does Observe bring to the market? 

Topic 2 - We wanted to do a little ?before-and-after?, and focus on what it means to be a ?Cloud-First? company. What are the most obvious differences between a company like Observe and a company like Dell or EMC?    

Topic 3 - From a product perspective, how do you think about roadmaps and the ways in which you enable new features for customers? Since Observe runs only in the public cloud, how much do you need to think about integrating with the native cloud services? 

Topic 4 - You have deep expertise in creating marketing messaging, but so much of how customers learn about your products is no longer the company website. How do you think about reaching potential customers, or generally getting your message into the market?

Topic 5 - Traditional IT was often aligned to centralized buying and architecture groups. How much does Cloud-First change the consumption models for companies - experimentation, on-demand usage, dealing with scaling issues, etc.

Topic 6 - Overall, what are some of the biggest lessons you?ve learned about the Cloud-First approach as you?ve transitioned over the last 3+ years.

Topic 2 - Let?s talk about this concept of ?event-driven? and flow. Where did it come from, what does it do, why is it valuable to application designers?   

Topic 2a - What is a ?flow? and how is it related to event-driven?

Topic 3 - Events are data. We?ve had relational databases for data, and then we had NoSQL or eventually-consistent databases for data. Are events a new type of data, or a new way to deal with data in a different context?  (channels, replays, etc.)

Topic 4 - Can we talk through an example of an event-driven application, or an event-driven integration between multiple organizations? How is it new/different? What unique capabilities does it bring now?  (Kafka, IoT, API Gateways, etc.)

Topic 5 - Cloud made IT self-service. Serverless made Ops become on-demand. If I?m a business leader, what does event-driven give us?  

Topic 6 - Where are we in the maturity of event-driven architectures? What might be some of the next stages coming in 2021 or 2022?

Topic 1 - Welcome back to the show. Tell the audience a little bit about what you do in the day job, and then a little bit about Software Defined Talk. 

Topic 2 - 10yrs ago, the software and hardware vendors created the concept of hybrid cloud, partially as a defense against public cloud, and partially as a reality check for existing usage. Now we have the public cloud rolling out both hybrid and multi-cloud offerings. How did we get here? 

Topic 3 - As you talk to different companies, what?s the reality of Hybrid Cloud today? What is it, what do companies expect it to be, etc?

Topic 4 - What?s the biggest misperception about Hybrid Cloud that you?ve seen over the years and that you seen now (could be different things)?

Topic 5 - What parts of Hybrid Cloud do you expect to gain traction over the next couple of years?

TRENDS and MAJOR STORIES from 2020:

COVID sent everybody home. 2020 was the year of VDI and Desktop-as-a-Service.Conferences went all virtual. Did anybody miss them? Did anybody do them well? More companies adopted the public cloud, since they couldn?t get into their data centers.But we also found out the public cloud isn?t infinite resources (e.g. Azure had to prioritize existing customers, healthcare customers). Long-term investments matter. Did you have a favorite video conference service in 2020?AWS: $46B, Azure: $30B-ish , GCP: $12-13B, Alibaba: $6-8B - Azure still doesn?t break out their revenues.OSS-companies are growing their Cloud/Managed business (MongoDB, Confluent, RedisLabs, Red Hat, etc. - as well as others like VMware, Nutanix)More companies are going cloud-only in their offerings (Snowflake, Tecton, Observ, etc.). Atlassian is moving away from the on-prem offerings (over next couple years)ARM chips made their name in mobile phones, and now they are poised to take over desktops and public cloud (cheaper, faster) - NVIDIA bought ARMAWS had an outage just before Thanksgiving - nobody is actually sure how AWS works behind the scenes. Hybrid Cloud is now officially a thing - AWS, Azure and GCP all have offerings, as well as every traditional vendor.

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Todd has been a guest before, but Carmen is new. Tell us a little bit about both of your backgrounds.

Topic 2 - Let start by talking about AzureStack, in a broader context. The ?brand? has been in the market for quite a while, but it really went through an evolution about a year ago - different services add, different buying options, etc. Help understand the broader AzureStack story.

Topic 3 - When most people think of HCI, they think about Compute, Storage, and VMs - simplifying the complexity of those systems. Now the world is moving more to the cloud, but on-premises still remains. Let?s talk about the concept of HCI becoming an extended cloud service and how that?s evolving.

Topic 4 - VMs, Containers, Backup/Recovery, Auto-Updates are now all built-in to AzureStackHCI. Which group (or groups) is managing AzureStackHCI in a typical company? 

Topic 5 - How important is it to support disconnected (from the cloud) AzureStack HCI instances? Can there be scenarios that are partially-disconnected? 

Topic 6 - Are you seeing any new or unexpected use-cases because of COVID-19, or now that HCI can be viewed as an extension of the public cloud?

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. It?s always exciting to talk to new companies. You were doing some pretty interesting things at Uber prior to starting Tecton, so tell us a little bit about that experience and then what motivated you to start Tecton? 

Topic 2 - There are lots of Data/AI/ML tools and platforms out there. Tecton talks about ?great models need great features?. Give us a high-level overview of the Tecton platform and the perspective you bring to solving complex business problems.

Topic 3 - After reading the papers on the Uber Michelangelo platform, it?s clear that today?s interactions aren?t a bunch of individual ?decisions?, but layers of decisions made on ever-changing data (the UberEATS example). Why does business need a new approach to how they interact with data? 

Topic 4 - When I think about earlier approaches for companies to ?harness data for analytics?, there was always the problem of data silos. Do you find that companies need to organize themselves different, not just organize their data, to be able to overcome those silo challenges? Does it take a much more product-centric approach vs. the traditional ?analyst? approach?

Topic 5 - Every new company and platform needs to find product-market fit. What do you see as early ?fits? for the Tecton platform? 

Topic 6 - How much data-science expertise does a company need today to be able to leverage Tecton, and how much does the platform lower the barrier to entry?

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. We?ve been following your work for a while (Nicira, OpenShift networking, etc), but tell our audience a little bit about your background.

Topic 2 - A few years ago I wrote an article that said, ?if you?re in networking, the #1 skill you should learn is Linux?. Why has there been so much shift from ?traditional networking? to so many new capabilities being implemented in software, and specifically Linux?

Topic 3 - Help us understand these two new concepts - eBPF and Cilium. It?s new packet filtering, it?s container networking, it?s multi-cluster networking, it can help with observability - lots going on here. 

Topic 4 - What are some of the gaps in today?s networking/filtering/observability stacks that can improve with eBPF/Cilium?   

Topic 5 - We?ve seen quite a few companies evolve from expertise in an open-source project to commercial offerings. What lessons have you learned from other companies that shape how Isovalent will both go-to-market and also engage with ecosystem partners? 

Topic 6 - What are some of the common use-cases or applications you see that highlight the value of the Isovalent stack?

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. The world of SAP has evolved quite a bit over the last decade. Tell us about your background and what led you to focus on bringing SAP to the cloud.

Topic 2 - A decade ago, SAP was very focused on this new HANA database and most people still thought of them as an ERP company. Since then, they have bought a lot of companies, especially in the SaaS space (SuccessFactors, Concur, Hipmonk, Qualtrics, etc.). Can you give us a high-level overview of what relationship SAP has with their customers these days?

Topic 3 - Lemongrass is focused on helping customers move SAP to the AWS Cloud. What types of applications are being moved, and why are customers moving them?

Topic 4 -  Lemongrass talks about 5 Waves of Innovations to get SAP into AWS (Migrate, FinOps/SysOps/DevOps, 4/HANA, Big Data, AI). Where are most customers on that journey today? Does it tend to be consistent across industries? 

Topic 5 - AWS often talks about a ?shared responsibility model? for application-availability or security. How does that model apply to SAP applications, and what role does Lemongrass play for customers on an on-going basis?

Topic 6 - Have you seen the pandemic change how companies are looking at their SAP environments and whether or not it makes them do more in the cloud?

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. You?ve been at the forefront of really interesting tech in the past. Can you tell us a little bit about your background?

Topic 2 - Over the last few months, we?ve been digging into newer distributed architecture elements (Jamstack, GraphQL, Serverless, etc.). But we haven?t dug into the role of data in these architectures. Help us understand this 4th generation architecture, or client-serverless, and the role of data.

Topic 3 - Data is still stored somewhere, but its usage is now made up of a bunch of data coming together in various contexts. How does Fauna fit into this new world when clients and APIs play as much of a role as ?the database??

Topic 4 - As you talk to people that come from a SQL / Relational-DB background, how does the discussion go in terms of how things change and some of the common bottlenecks/problems that Fauna can solve for them?  

Topic 5 - Databases have traditionally been difficult to scale, protect, maintain, etc. How does you enable the data layer or API access to now follow a NoOps model? 

Topic 6 - Where are the best places for people to engage to learn more about how to not only use the Jamstack architecture, but apply the principles around Fauna for Data/API management?

Datadog Continuous ProfilingHow to write a Python profiler Deep Distributed Tracing


Topic 1 - Welcome to the show and welcome back to the show. Before we dig into today?s topic, can you give us a little bit of your background and how you became focused in this area? 

Topic 2 - Production used to be a pretty sacred and untouched environment. Now we?re seeing the need to create chaos in production, test in production, and know more about how things actually work in production. Let?s talk about this concept of ?profiling?.  

Topic 3 - People often talk about having to ?instrument their code? to be able to get feedback. How does that differ from profiling, and what unique things does an application need to be profiled in production? 

Topic 4 - On the surface, this seems like it would add quite a bit of overhead to the applications. How do you manage to find the right balance of performance and visibility? 

Topic 5 - Help us understand how profiling fits into the bigger picture of all the tools needs - Logging, APM, Observability, etc? 

Topic 6 - Is there a profile of who needs profiling? Is this every application team, or just for specific applications (e.g. event-streaming, etc.)?

Topic 2 - Defense in Depth is a strategy that has long been in place in Enterprise computing. We?ve seen previous approaches that connected the OS or Application with the Hardware (e.g. Intel TXT). How has this space evolved over the last few years, and what are some of the reasons why we need another level of depth?

Topic 3 - Let?s talk about the technology basics of Confidential Computing. What are the software elements (Application, OS, SDK) and what are the hardware elements? 

Topic 4 -  What is the normal migration path for a company to move workloads into Confidential Computing environments? Is this primarily for new workloads, or does it apply to existing applications too? 

Topic 5 - Azure has the ability to deliver either Confidential VMs, or recently added Confidential containers along with AKS. When does it make sense to be confidential in one part of the stack vs. other?

Topic 3 - We often hear about systems with APIs and how they can be automated and interacted with. But many back-end systems could be older, so how does RPA interact with these types of systems?  

Topic 4 - Oftentimes these automated workflows can involve inputs and outputs from various systems (applications). Who tends to be the owner of an RPA system, or does it blur the lines between groups?

Topic 2 - There?s a concept that?s now been around a couple years called ?DevSecOps?. Originally it was ?Sec? being jammed in there because it had been excluded from the early days of DevOps (at least in practice). Where are we with DevSecOps today? 

Topic 3 - Let?s talk about DevSecOps in the context of containers. We now have things like Container Scanning, Container Signing, and Immutable Infrastructure and yet security still concerns people. Isn?t the ?software supply chain? supposed to weed out the vulnerabilities before they get into the production systems?

Topic 4 - One of the challenges that companies have in adopting containers is that they were used to having root access to hosts, and containers live in the user space. How can security tools fit into a container world? 

Topic 5 - As you talk to lots of companies, how are they dealing with the cultural challenges that go along with implementing DevSecOps?

Topic 2 - About a year ago, you introduced this new concept called ?Data Mesh?. Before we get into that, give us a little bit of background on the problems that previous generations of Data Warehouses or Data Lakes created. 

Topic 3 - Lets begin to walk through how Data Mesh is different from Data Lake. We?re not talking about just dumping all the various data sources into one ?pool?, there?s a concept of ?domains? within this big pool of data. What are the new concepts of source and consumption?

Topic 4 - Explain the concept of how pipelines are tied into Data Mesh and how this allows the creation of new products/features from the Data Mesh.

Topic 5 - You talk about the data being truthful, and then you bring an SRE concept of SLO into the truthfulness of the data. Explain how that might work?

Topic 1 - Vaibhav, welcome to the show. Tell everyone a little about yourself and what got you started in the AI space?

Topic 2 - We?ve done a number of AI/ML shows over the years, but we haven?t talked much about Natural Language Understanding or NLU. Let?s start there, can you give everyone an introduction?

Topic 3 - Based on that, is the primary interaction with the end user through a chatbot or something similar? What are the primary use cases and tools you are seeing in the industry? Is this a Slack and/or Microsoft Teams integration? Unsolicited plug, I?m a customer in my day job? 

Topic 4 - We?ve been talking a lot on the show recently about the migration to SaaS based products. What is the model here? Is the AI central (cloud hosted) or private and in-house?  Do you have the concept of a template AI and then each customer AI is an instance or is this a central AI that is called? How does it get customized and updated over time? What training is typically required and is this training on-going?

Topic 5 - How do you prevent user frustration from ?loops? or unanswered questions? I think of the voice automated telephone systems I?m not a fan of as an example. How would you handle language that isn?t built into the AI?

SHOW NOTES:

Topic 1 - Back on March 18th, Aaron and Ken Hui did a show about ?Working from Home Tips and Tricks?. Can you even remember your mindset back in March?  

Zoom becomes a verb

Topic 1a - Is 2020 the Year of Virtual Desktops? Have you seen any last shifts happening about people being remote? [are companies going to allow people to work remote?]

Topic 2 - We?re starting to see the major clouds start to carve out some unique personalities:

AWS - Goes over $10B for the quarter, not a lot of big announcementsAzure - Lots of interesting growth around GitHub; pushing Teams hard with COVID; but had some scaling issues with COVID - also has made several acquisitionsGoogle - Getting very sales focused (CEO Kurian); pushing Anthos into other clouds (AWS now, Azure soon)Oracle - Are they becoming the low-cost bandwidth cloud?

Topic 3 - Should anybody be running their own software anymore? 

MongoDB, Confluent, Datastax, Hashicorp, Red Hat, VMware (and many more) now have managed cloud-based versions of their core software.

Topic 4 - 2001 Internet Crash drove a ton of new innovation. 2008 Financial Crash led to the public cloud, but also lots of ?cost savings? innovation. What does 2020 potentially bring? 

Topic 5 - We have to talk about conferences and tradeshows. Do they return in 2021? What have we learned from the virtual ones in 2020?

Topic 6 - Any insights / predictions about the rest of 2020?

Topic 3 - Lets talk about what the Stackery platform brings to the serverless ecosystem. 

Topic 4 - As you talk to prospective customers, how much different is it to discuss not have to be burdened by underlying resources vs. previous conversations you?ve had about applications? How long does it usually take them to grasp the magnitude of the changes in development?

Topic 5 - How much of a ?traditional? developer experience still exists with serverless (write code, write tests, pipelines, etc.) and what are some immediate things they will see that?s different?

Topic 6 - Having been at Puppet you obviously saw many DevOps transformations. What are some of the steps on a typical Serverless transformation for companies?

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. You?ve played a role in helping to design systems that secure some of the most critical environments in the world. Tell us a little bit about your background.

Topic 2 - We?ve talked about monitoring, observability and in various ways ?security?, but how do you see all those things beginning to come together more these days? 

Topic 3 - As we get into more distributed environments, especially for security (authentication, encryption, key-management, proxies, etc.), how should people think about a framework to have visibility and be able to take action across these distributed systems? 

Topic 4 - Is this visibility of security-related activities (or potentially security-associated) mostly useful for real-time security threats (e.g. ?we?re being attacked?), or can it also be used for more long-term types of activities (planning, threat modeling, chaos engineering, etc.)?

Topic 5 - Can you share with us any customer-centric stories of how this is helping companies deliver better services, or more uptime for their services?

Topic 6 - What are some tips you can share with the audience today that would help them make immediate impacts to how them monitor for security?

Topic 1 - Venkat, you have a very interesting background as a technologist in our industry. Give everyone a brief introduction and if you don?t mind also tell everyone a bit about being a member of the Forbes Technology Council. I believe you are our first guest from there.

Topic 2 - Today we?re going to dig back into AI as a topic. Let?s start at the start. In your current role you have been involved in technology over the years and Clari has been around for awhile. What compelled you to focus on this space?

Topic 3 - AI has suffered from a perception issue. It often is seen as unapproachable with a pretty high barrier to entry. We?ve spoken to companies in the past about specific industry or vertical applications (manufacturing for instance). Many architects and our listeners are practitioners vs. data scientists. How do we solve this problem and ?bring AI to mainstream?

Topic 4 - In order for that to happen, what does our industry need? Is it SaaS based, services from public clouds, etc?

Topic 5 - Having been in field sales for years, it?s always been somewhere between complete and utter guesswork all the way to precision, rocket science level analysis. - What are your thoughts here and how can AI improve this situation?

Topic 6 - What?s next for industry? What are the use cases both today and in the future?

BetterCloud Website

Topic 1 - Jim, welcome to the show. tell everyone a little about yourself and what has you so passionate about making SaaS better?

Topic 2 - Over the years on the podcast we have watched the growth of the SaaS market. It seems a market isn?t truly it?s own until you attach Ops to it? We?ve seen DevOps, SecOps, NoOps, and many others. So, today we are going to talk about SaaSOps. What is SaaSOps?

Topic 3 - At the core of SaaSOps is the ability to discover all the SaaS capabilities that are being used across a company. There is no longer a central place in IT to discover things, and no longer a fixed perimeter for input and output. So how do you discover things in SaaSOps?

Topic 3a - On the flip side of that, how do you manage data discovery, because if things didn?t go through a known exit point, how do you connect what data left the company (or might be insecurely stored somewhere?)

Topic 4 - Every industry has growing pains. What are some in the SaaS industry? Security seems to always be a pain for everyone...

Topic 5 - How is this space different from straight up identity management and the classical dashboard of SaaS and other apps that may be provided to me as an employee of a company?

Topic 6 - Your background is non-Silicon Valley and the company locations reflect that. How has it been building a company outside the bubble?

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Tell us a little bit about your background, as you?ve been working on developer productivity for quite a while?

Topic 2 - We?ve been watching this trend of GitHub moving from a place where developers put code, to a place where they collaborate around code, and now it?s expanding out to a full lifecycle around both the code and running applications. Let?s talk about that evolution. 

Topic 3 - Help us understand the basics of GitHub Actions and GitHub Packages.

Topic 4 - What sort of feedback was coming in from developers that pushed GitHub to get more involved in the complete DevOps lifecycle?

Topic 5 - Can you talk about the growth of Actions/Packages since they launched in early 2019? What are some of the interesting use-cases you?ve seen? 

Topic 6 - If you?re able to give us a glimpse into the future, what are some of the other areas where GitHub can expand Actions, or you?re starting to see users push it?s capabilities?

SHOW NOTES:

Wash your handsDon't touch your facePractice Social Distancing

Topic 1 - No tech topic this week. We?re going to talk a bit today about working remotely. This may be new and unexpected to some of you. To talk about this I invited past guest and occasional co-host, Ken Hui.  Between Ken and I, we have worked together at a few different places in the past and probably have 20+ years working from anywhere. Welcome back Ken! For those that live under a rock and don?t know you, tell everyone a little about yourself and what you?re up to these days.

Topic 2 - Let?s start with some basics. What are the first steps to both keep your sanity and be productive? (Making sure your calendar is public, your company has a standard for chat/video/etc, don?t they? You are available during business hours, etc.) Set up a dedicated work space, etc. Don?t use Slack to replace email?.

Topic 3 - At our last company together, Ken pushed hard for certain work from home inclusion rules, what were they? Video camera on, video camera off? People will always assume the worst.

Topic 4 - Weekly report on work to a distributed team: this week, next week, GYR status, upcoming PTO, etc.

Topic 5 - Have a start and stop time (that is friendly to your HQ)

ZenHub Homepage

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Tell us a little bit about your background, and ultimately what led you to co-found ZenHub?

Topic 2 - Let?s start by talking about what ZenHub delivers. We?re very interested in the potential of GitHub and the things it?s doing directy, but we?re also interested in this ecosystem that?s enhancing GitHub. 

Topic 3 - What are some best-practices around road mapping and prioritizing activities that could be shared?

Topic 4 - What are some best-practices around allowing greater transparency of roadmaps with multiple teams? (what are the pros and cons)?

Topic 5 - ZenHub is an example of a toolset that's built entirely around GitHub capabilities. Do you think we'll begin to see more companies just built around GitHub and move away from externally-connected toolsets? 

Topic 6 - Are most of your interactions with software companies, or are you also interacting with businesses whose primary focus is something other than being a software company?

API Driven Edge Networking and 5G

Sunay Tripathi (@SunayTripathi, Founder and CTO, @MobiledgeX) talk about Edge Networking, why 5G will be a huge leap forward, evolving use cases beyond AR/VR, and creating a clean developer experience by abstracting away the mobile transport layer

MobiledgeX websiteMobiledgeX Use CasesSeamster

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Tell everyone a little about yourself, you have been at the intersection of Network Virtualization, Cloud, and now Edge for quite some time.

Topic 2 - Let?s start at the start. What is your definition of Edge and what are some of the historical problems you see there? In this instance we are talking about network edge devices and not edge computing, correct?

Topic 3 - Tell us a little bit about device/identity security at the edge.

Topic 4 - When I think about device based AR/VR, I think about gaming as the primary use case that I?m exposed to as a consumer but we are talking about much more than that. What are some of the prominent use cases you are seeing and are trying to solve for?

Topic 5 - How does the increase in bandwidth at the transport layer, in particular worldwide 5G come in to play? Is this just a ?bigger, faster pipe? or does it require a heavy implementation lift to adopt? How does world geography play into this? Some areas of the world are dominated with edge/handheld devices for almost all daily life now...

Topic 6 - We don?t talk about PaaS as much on the podcast lately but would it be safe to characterize MobiledgeX?s technology as a development PaaS for edge devices?

Topic 7 - Tells us about MobiledgeX?s upcoming initiative, Seamster. As I understand it this will bring vendors and developers together, correct?

DevOps and Incident Response Evolution

VictorOps (now Splunk) BlogChris Riley at DevOps.comDevelopers Eating the World Podcast

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Tell everyone a little about yourself, you?ve been active in the DevOps space for quite some time.

Topic 2 - About a year ago we had your peer and good friend of the show, Josh Atwell, on to talk about the State of DevOps in 2019. What are your thoughts on changes over the last 12 months and where we headed in 2020?

Topic 3 - One item in particular that has drawn my attention is your discussions on Incident Response and Machine Learning. Can you tell everyone a little bit about that and why you believe it will be valuable going forward?

Topic 4 - This in a way feels almost like a transition into the next evolution of our model. First we had separate dev and ops and no one talked, then we put them together, then we had every device and app start spitting out logs and alerts and next thing you knew, we were drowning in data? The complexity of the systems has grown exponentially. Fair?

Topic 5 - You recently did a post over on the Victor Ops blog about SRE and the meaning of the ?S? in that blog. You propose more and more it should stand for Service Reliability Engineer vs. the more traditional Site Reliability Engineer, especially as we move into a subscription based model world. Can you explain to everyone your thoughts there?

Topic 6 - When I think Incident Response, I think production environments. As part of VictorOps I?m sure you see a lot of use cases and have solved some pretty unique customer problems. How can this be applied outside of production, say for application testing or quality before hitting production? Is that a valid approach?

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Before we dive into our discussion, tell us a little bit about your background in working on scalable technologies. 

Topic 2 - Today we?re going to mash together a couple of popular (and complex) topics - the growing use-cases on Kubernetes, and the growing need to synchronize data for anywhere access. Let?s start with the data side of the equation - tell us about the basics of your creation, CockroachDB, and the challenges it solves.

Topic 3 - What are some of the use-cases that are driving more scalable SQL usage vs. more traditional SQL database models?

Topic 4 - When Kubernetes first got started, the focus was on scalable stateless (cloud-native) applications. How are you beginning to see the trend towards companies becoming more comfortable with stateful applications (e.g. databases) on Kubernetes?

Topic 5 - One of the new technologies that?s making it easier to get databases onto Kubernetes is ?Operators?. CockroachLabs has been one of the leading platforms supporting this technology. Can you talk a little bit about your experience with Operators and how it images the way Kubernetes teams (developers or platform teams) about databases on Kubernetes.

Topic 6 - What are some of the lessons learned from deploying CockroachDB onto Kubernetes?
