Before we introduce our guest, we recap our “State of the Podcast” lunch we recently had and how we’re planning to change the focus of the show
Topic 1 - Why did you attend Cloud Foundry Summit?
Topic 2 - One of the themes is that “software is eating the world”, which is easy for a start-up or technology-company to say, but did you see examples from more traditional industries?
Topic 3 - Cloud Foundry Summit is independent from Pivotal. What did you see and hear from other companies that were building on top of Cloud Foundry?
Topic 4 - You’ve been doing some independent development on side projects. Do you see yourself using a PaaS platform to make that simpler?
Topic 5 - Coming from an infrastructure-centric role today, which lessons did you take away from Cloud Foundry Summit that will impact your career over the next couple years?
