Link: Lessons from Elad Gil and High Growth Handbook

It’d be useful at some point to compare the “how to be a startup” advice to “how to modernize and suite of enterprise applications.” For example, an enterprise often knows its product/market fit (e.g., selling kidnapping insurance to executives). However, it may not know the best product/technology approach (it needs a mobile app that tracks when the executive leaves the country), or product/design fit (the executive’s assistant does most of the interaction with the software, so you need to add a secondary user).

For enterprises, there’s much to be learned from startup think, but there’s also much that’s different.

Link: Kubernetes is the new app server


‘Then there’s the whole cloud angle. Kubernetes has “quickly become the central container orchestration engine for most major cloud providers, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud, and Red Hat OpenShift,” Guiu states. “With services like Amazon EKS, Azure Kubernetes Service, and Google Kubernetes Engine the developer experience is becoming more seamless and doesn’t require a developer to install, manage, or operate Kubernetes clusters. We’re going to see further innovation here so that a developer can just drop an application and run it in Kubernetes without having to build the Docker image.”’

Link: Goodbye Microservices: From 100s of problem children to 1 superstar

“Briefly, microservices is a service-oriented software architecture in which server-side applications are constructed by combining many single-purpose, low-footprint network services. The touted benefits are improved modularity, reduced testing burden, better functional composition, environmental isolation, and development team autonomy. The opposite is a Monolithic architecture, where a large amount of functionality lives in a single service which is tested, deployed, and scaled as a single unit.”

That’s a good definition!
