Cloud Native Journey Series

I’ve been working on a series of blog posts on “the cloud native journey.” I put that in quotes because it’s admittedly a cheesy marketing phrase. The point of it is: if you’re looking to start using all these new cloud-based ideas for improving how your company does custom software development, what’s that look like. You know, what’s the “journey.”

Are there ways of being paranoid without being an asshole? Or, All your hot takes are belong to us – Software Defined Talk #45

Summary


After discussing the horns of moses and beard butter, we talk about how big companies seem to always “miss it.” We use a recent write-up of Nokia as the launching point, and sort of conclude that the problem is: people get fat and happy and don’t stay “paranoid” enough. We also discuss Ad Blocking and how little most tech vendor marketers probably care about the topic. Brandon gives a good rant on how to do marketing right: have a great product.

With Brandon Whichard, Matt Ray, and Coté.
