Further on the quest to figure out what a “cloud-native enterprise architect” is:
What’s the “business” side of enterprise architecture? And how does EA’ing start mapping to DevOps, cloud-native, and all the new stuff? In part one of this discussion, I talk with Matt Walburn about how EA’s fit into The Business.

Another interview, mostly on cloud and other dorky topics:
Having worked in cloud since before cloud, JJ and I talk about what companies are using various cloud things for. We also discuss the conceptual history of cloud, and what exactly he does as a “business development” person at Chef.
During a spate of Pivotal Conversations podcast recordings I had the change to quickly talk with RedMonk’s Rachel Stephens about financials, something she knows plenty about. She gave some handy tips on how to read them. Check out the interview, subscribe to the podcast!
While in San Francisco for a Pivotal meeting, I recorded an episode with Josh Long. We talk about what reactive programming is and why you’d use it. Also, dish towels. Also, check out the livestream of this if you’re into video.
“I get to see your face during this podcast,” Matt says as we start talking about SpringOne Platform. Both of us were there and we recap Matt’s talk on managing 10 Pivotal Cloud Foundry instances, namely, how they figured out using a Concourse pipeline to automate much of that management. We discuss “how to do the transformation” talks we liked, like the Citi talk.
In addition to some other random digital transformation topics, we also discuss how HR policies are struggling to change with things like pair programming and DevOps.
I’ve had a theory that the hard-line philosophy of open source has softened in recent times. Rather than thinking closed source is to be avoided at all costs, I think most developer types are a lot more willing to accept closed source bits mixed in with open source bits. That is, open core has “won.” I discuss this topic with my long time pal, Barton George, while at SpringOne Platform, plus the work he’s doing in the developer and OSS worlds at Dell.
