  • Collaborating with Google on Cloud Services Platform

    (14 Mar 2019)
    Every once and a while I am reminded that all this cool new technology we are fortunate to make a living from still comes down to the people you get to meet and interact with. Looking back about 9 months, a couple weeks after we announced our official partnership with Google I was introduced to a couple Googlers that were working on a fresh new Kubernetes project. Most of the conversation was not about the technology or what they were building but what the market and our customers needed to be successful with Kubernetes. At this point it was no secret that Kubernetes was a very big deal and many people trying to deploy and manage it as scale were having some challenges. Google was clearly looking to solve these challenges and also take things to a new level.
  • Knative = A Serverless Developer Experience based on Kubernetes

    (20 Feb 2019)
    Better late than never, I had started this blog back in late October after Github Universe in San Francisco. I stopped by the Google office in Seattle on my way home and was able to meet with some of the Knative team and chat about all this Serverless hype. I had been interested in what the Knative community was building and how the project would impact kubernetes. Knative is being developed by the likes of Google, Pivotal, SAP, Red Hat, IBM, and many others.
  • //helping people succeed

    (16 Jul 2018)
    Last week I had the pleasure of having a fireside chat in Toronto with [Kelsey Hightower] from Google at our [Clouds Containers and Kelsey Event]. When I look back at the day it was a ton of fun... It's nice to be reminded of the strong opensource / tech community we have in Toronto and it's refreshing how much we can all learn from each other when we find the time to get together and share our thoughts.
