From Objects to Capabilities: Joe Hoh on Infrastructure Team to Platform Team
What's different about the day in the life of a DevOps Platform pro from an infrastructure pro? In speaking with Joe Hoh of Great American Insurance Company it's all about delivering capabilities instead of objects. The work isn't measured by the number of VMs delivered and tickets fulfilled. It's about adding new capabilities to developers and their business use cases. And that is much more rewarding work. What helps? Embracing the reality of change and making rework easier with a platform. With so much base capability automated, the platform team gets more return on spending time with developers, helping them be successful. "A lot of what DevOps is is educating each other." What did Joe bring to his platform role from infrastructure days?

Managing remote working, strategy & people
In this episode, Coté is joined by Rick Clark and Sophie Seiwald to discuss management challenges of remote working. You know the drill: everyone has been working from home since the spring, taking away all the advantages and habits of working face-to-face. What’s new in this conversation is some advice for doing strategy communication, something that’s especially important when you’re relying on autonomous developer teams. We also discuss keeping people’s spirits up and making casual conversations with the boss more like running into each other in the hallway instead of an ominous “we need to talk” meeting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJsnVT_LqTM&list=PLAdzTan_eSPRNuA52_34wh5VTBC-0Rz7U&index=8&t=425s

The Business Case For Cloud Computing with Kevin Jackson
"Cloud computing is a risk management exercise" In this episode, Dormain talks with Kevin L. Jackson, author of "Click to Transform," about the business case for cloud computing. Kevin argues that the real value is in delivering products better, faster, and to more people. In many cases this involves a jump from physical products to virtual experiences. But the technology isn't the hard part; shifting to an ecosystem approach is much harder. What about cost savings in the cloud? Kevin points out that cloud computing will cost more if it's not accompanied by a change in operating models.

Sympathy for the Platform Team with Adam Furtado of Kessel Run
As the saying goes, before you judge or criticize someone (or a team), you should walk a mile in their shoes. In this week's episode, Dormain sits down with Adam Furtado (Twitter: AdamSFurtado), who recently went from leading product development teams at Kessel Run (a division of the United States Air Force), to walking a mile in the platform teams shoes.

Kubernetes as enterprise architecture, with Rick Clark
In this episode, Rick and I discuss something I've been thinking about recently: kubernetes as an enterprise architecture. As we open up with, kubernetes people like to call it an "API," which always seems weirds to me as a former programmer. But, there's something important that they're getting to: a standard set of interfaces, processes, and data formats that comes together to define a programming and operations model. You know: an enterprise architecture. Also, Rick tell us what his weird Twitter handle means.

Responsible Microservices, with Nate Schutta
Sometimes you feel like a microservice, sometimes you feel like a monolith. In this episode, Coté talks with Nate Schutta about his new book Responsible Microservices: when to use them, when to use a service mesh, the (false?) hope of polyglot programming, monolithic shaming, and giant zucchinis.

Eating elephants one bite at a time, 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. This episode is pretty visual, though audio only works well too. We recorded it in Twitch, which you should subscribe to to start seeing other videos like this. Check out the original recording if you want to see Rohit’s most excellent whiteboarded diagrams. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/694237498?t=00h1m00s

DataOps and home haircuts, with Bob Glithero

Just as agile, DevOps, and cloud native have changed app development, those improvements have changed the world of data as well. In this episode, Bob Glithero tells us all about it. We also discuss haircutting strategies.

Making Time To Fail In Order To Learn: John Paice on the Journey from vSphere pro to DevOps pro
“Taking a course on Kubernetes is helpful, but it’s also really helpful to just fail at it." Failing at anything feels uncomfortable. But, as John Paice, a platform reliability engineer at DICK's Sporting Goods points notes, failing at something can be the best way to learn it. In this episode, Dormain talks to John about his journey from a HyperV and vSphere expert to one of the founding members of the DICK's Sporting Goods platform engineering team. Along the way, he's had to learn new scripting languages, get familiar with the differences between cloud providers, and strengthen his Linux know-how.

Process, Automation, and Continuous Everything: Analyst Report Insights
In this episode, I (Dormain) am joined by Rita Manachi (@ritam) and Derrick Harris (@derrickharris) to dissect three analyst reports: *Forrester's Top 10 Trends That Will Shape Modern Infrastructure and Operations in 2020 *Gartner's Application Modernization Should Be Business-Centric, Continuous, and Multiplatform *Gartner's Best Practices to Enable Continuous Delivery with Containers and DevOps What we observe are that many of these insights and recommendations are related to each other. Process and automation, for example, are like two sides of the same coin. Automation plays a big part in modern I&O and continuous delivery, but what are you automating? A process. At some point—possible to automate at all—processes need to be revisited. Product thinking and the role of containerization in dev ops and modernization are also themes that cut across these reports.

There Is No Team Without Tea - Neville George On the Path from vSphere Admin to Platform Engineer
There are more VMware Admins out there than Cloud/Platform Engineers... but with vSphere 7 with Kubernetes, that is likely to start to change. To give a taste for what is to come for vSphere admins out there, Dormain sat down with Neville George who himself made the transition from VMware administrator to Platform Engineer at Comcast. He shares what has stayed the same and what has changed, as well as what he has had to learn along the way. A must-listen for anyone managing VMware infrastructure today.
