About the Show
Beyond the world of Apple, startups, and unicorns there's a whole world of technology used by all the donkeys out there. That's where I've always had my head stuck and this podcast is my "crank file" of content that didn't fit in the other podcasts I do.

Episode 37: Cloud-native enterprise architecture, with Matt Curry & Andrew Clay Shafer
July 21st, 2017 | 52 mins 50 secs

Here, Matt Curry, Andrew Clay Shafer, and I discuss the things that would motivate such a role and try to chart out what functions the cloud-native EA would serve.

All these cloud-native apps don’t magically figure out how to talk with each other themselves.

While killing time at the Pivotal booth at OSCON, I talked with Spencer Gibb who works on these things and more in Spring.
