Exploring Mapping and Enterprise Inertia – The Goat Farm – S2E2
In this episode of The Goat Farm we are in wonderful Copenhagen, Denmark for Kubecon/CloudNativeCon EU 2018 where we sat down with three guests to talk about organizational inertia and overcoming that inertia. First we talk to Simon Wardley. Simon has long been a prominent figure in the world of Cloud computing, and spends much of his time talking about mapping. We chat with Simon about what mapping is, and he introduces concepts regarding forces at play when technology adoption evolves. Next we talk to Kris Nova of Heptio.

DevOps in a Cloud Native & Serverless World – The Goat Farm – S2E1
The Goat Farm is back with what we’re dubbing “Season 2”. In Season 2 we are going to focus on the challenges of inertia in organizations, how organizations are adopting the practices of Cloud Native and Serverless, and the intersection of DevOps and Cloud Native. We start this episode off with a conversation with Joe Beda of Heptio. This conversation was originally recorded in December of 2017 at The Lodge Sports Grille in downtown Seattle. Joe talks about the concept of organizational fit, and how the patterns and practices of DevOps in the past had a hard time mapping to an organization. He also talks about the concept of API first infrastructure, and how that impacts how we think about operations. We also catch up with Rob Cummings of Slalom and Tom McLaughlin of ServerlessOps at DevOpsDays Seattle 2018. Both guests tell us about the impact of Serverless on the transformation of the organization, and the current trends their seeing with adoption of Cloud Native and Serverless. http://media.blubrry.com/thegoatfarm/goatcan.files.wordpress.com/2018/05/the-goat-farm-episode-14.mp3 Download MP3 – iTunes – Stitcher – RSS Music: C’est sur toi que ça va le mieux by Monplaisir Show Notes: Joe Beda – Cloud Native Part 3: DevOps Tom McLaughlin – Flying v.
