Loading up on hot-dogs, the cloud boys of summer, peak foundation



Can you ever go back to just writing code? We discuss. With the launch of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, we discuss how it relates to other foundations and cloud-land in general. We also talk about who’s not in the open cloud club, like Digital Ocean, and how things might pan out for them. And, of course, a little bit of OpenStack.

With Brandon Whichard, Matt Ray, and Coté.
