With Matt and Brandon fresh back from IBM’s InterConnect conference we talk about IBM’s announcements – mostly cloud related. It looks like IBM is doin’ alright, well, except for all those quarters of revenue decline aside, but maybe that’s the just what has to be stomached to evolve. We also discuss working with the corporate editorial desk and the concept of “serverless programming.”
