Tanzu Talk Live 20200924 – First Show – Empathetic Lunatics & The Great Developers Using Kubernetes Scare

I started a new, I don’t know, streaming thing today. I’m trying out live streaming every Tuesday and Thursday at 11am Amsterdam time. It was nice – but we’ll see if it matters.

Here’s the recording.

I didn’t monitor myself, so my wires were screwed up and there’s a hum for most of it. Sorry!

And, here’s my “shows notes.” I used miro for this, which I didn’t like. I think I need something simpler. People tell me there’s HackMD. I dunno.

Anyhow! You should subscribe or whatever one does and watch these.

Large scale application modernization with Rohit Kelapure 

Whatever you want to call it, “legacy” software is a problem. In one of our recent surveys, 76% of executives said they are too invested in legacy applications to change how they do software. It can seem hard, but fixing that blocker is possible. As with all things in software, there is no quick fix, it just takes discipline, work, and time. In this episode, Coté talks with VMware Tanzu’s Rohit Kelapure who’s been working in application modernization for years. He goes over the initial portfolio analysis and thinking that the Pivotal Labs application modernization teams walk customers through.
