Can an Open Source Foundation Fix Continuous Delivery Pipelines?
The choice of cloud native development tools and platform options have grown exponentially during the past couple of years. But with such a wide range of choices comes uncertainty, and sadly, confusion in many cases when deciding which option represents the best fit for software production pipelines. Chris Aniszczyk, CTO of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) and vice president of developer relations at the Linux Foundation, recently described the state of affairs in the cloud native landscape where there are “at least 20 to 30 tools out there, and it’s constantly growing, with a mix of startups and cloud providers, as “an opportune time amongst vendors and users to bring sanity to this space.” Much of this much-needed “sanity” involves the availability of common standards for continuous delivery (CD). To this end, the Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) was created to foster collaboration for deployments using Jenkins, Jenkins X, Spinnaker and Tekton. During this podcast episode of The New Stack @ Scale series, Alex Williams, founder and editor-in-chief of The New Stack, discussed CDF’s mission and what the development community can expect. The podcast discussions recorded at the Open Source Leadership Summit also covered hopes, as well as concerns, about what such a foundation might represent. Other speakers, in addition to Aniszczyk, included: Matt Klein, a software engineer at Lyft and creator of the Envoy Proxy; Kit Merker, vice president of business development, at JFrog; Dan Lorenc, a software engineer on Google’s Cloud Platform; Kim (Vogt) Lewandowski, a Google product manager.

‘Fork and Commoditize’ — GitLab CEO on the Threat of the Hyper-Clouds
GitLab exemplifies, in many ways, what is possible in the open source world. Created from scratch with the goal of solving a problem — in this case, how to offer developers a collaborative software platform; GitLab exemplifies the mind and spirit of the open source community. But in the fast-changing world of software development and as tech giants Google, Amazon and Microsoft seek to redefine how software is made and distributed with unparalleled capital resources, open source enterprises face many challenges and threats — some of which border on the existential for many projects. During this first podcast episode in the relaunched The New Stack @ Scale series, hosted by Alex Williams, founder and editor-in-chief of The New Stack and recorded during the Open Source Leadership Summit; Sid Sijbrandij, co-founder and CEO, of GitLab, discussed the state of development open source development today. He also discussed emerging threats, such as those posed by the hypercloud model and what many say is the menace of what Sijbrandij describes as Amazon AWS’s “fork and commoditize” strategy.

Show 8: Scaling Demands and Inevitable Failures Along the Way
HotelTonight is a five year old company that began like a lot of technology startups. It was originally built on Rails and quickly built into a monolithic application. But it didn’t take very long before the company was releasing new features and sitting them on top of its stack, supporting it all and the business as it grew organically. through that all, the business was scaling and the platform itself needed to keep pace. In this episode of The New Stack @ Scale, HotelTonight’s Jonathan Geggatt talked about what they’ve learned and the inevitable failures that occur when scaling.

Show 2: Managing Complexity
The New Stack @ Scale explores cloud-native architectures, boldly discusses complexity in distributed, scaled-out environments, and ventures deep into monitoring, analytics and open source, all beckoning toward a future of transparency between platforms and the infrastructure itself. Our mission with The New Stack @ Scale is to address topics of interest to developers, operations managers and business leaders alike, to hear from the industry’s best and most enlightening minds, and to lace these discussions with a variety of featured segments, to create an informative, ambitious show that stands apart from the typical one-mic podcast. The show is co-hosted by The New Stack founder Alex Williams, and New Relic Editor-in-Chief Fredric Paul, a long-time journalist himself. This second episode, recorded at AWS re:Invent, features two guests who bring a wealth of insight to the conversation: Dave McRory, CTO of Basho Technologies. Previously, Dave served as SVP of Engineering at Warner Music Group, as well as Senior Architect, Cloud Foundry at VMware, and as a Cloud Solutions Architect at Dell. He is also an inventor, an author, and a founder/CTO of several companies in the virtualization, systems management, and cloud computing spaces. James Governor, Co-founder of RedMonk, an independent IT research and advisory firm committed to an integrated view of information technologies and enterprise requirements. James is also founder of Shoreditch Works, a coworking space in London with a developer-centric focus. Later in the show, we hear from CEO John Sheehan about the infrastructure of Runscope, and also Loris Degioanni, founder of sysdig, who speaks to the complexities of the new stack. Also, make sure to keep your earbuds in for the bonus section at the end of the podcast. You’ll be treated to a wildly entertaining deconstruction of “Battlestar Galactica” as an allegory about microservices, along with an equally valid analysis using “Star Wars,” the premiere of the soon-to-be-iconic “Parable of The Prize Bull,” and much more.
