067: Fried chicken, Docker Swarm, tech journalism, or, “but that sweet @MattRay interpolation, tho.” – Software Defined Talk

With Brandon Whichard, Matt Ray, and Coté.

Show notes

Rainbow Chicken vs. Chick-fil-A

  • The “happy meal” barter system.
  • The Left needs some fried chicken chain.

DockerCon

Brook & Bob memorial segment, On the Tech Media

Apple & ZFS

  • More detail than you’d care to want
  • It’s like a story of the ups and (mostly) downs of enterprise infrastructure software. Also, the flirtation nature of announcements that keeps eager nerd-beavers on tender-hooks.

BONUS LINKS! Not covered in show

Infrastructure Software is Dead, or, “With friends like these…”

  • Hard truths from Mirantis
  • “Everybody’s OpenStack software is equally bad.”
