By: Aaron Delp and Brian Gracely

Description: Brian talks with Nick Weaver (@lynxbat, Director of SDI Labs @Intel) about living/working in Portland, trends in public clouds, the latest on containers, DockerCon EU, CoreOS Rocket, and cool Linux technology he’s learning about. Music Credit: Nine Inch Nails (www.nin.com)

Before we get into it with Nick, we need to address the lingering issue of either Aaron or Brian running for a Board seat in the OpenStack Foundation.
Topic 1 - You recently moved out to Portland. How is the Portland scene and how is it working full-time on the west coast (Seattle, Portland, Bay Area) - all within an hour flight?
Topic 2 - As an “outsider”, any thoughts on the recent announcements from any of the big clouds (AWS, Google, vCloud, Microsoft, etc.) or cloud projects (OpenStack)?
Topic 3 - A few months ago you gave a couple talks about Docker that got very good reviews & feedback. We’ve discussed the pros & cons of Docker offline. Where do you see Docker and the Docker ecosystem these days?
Topic 4 - That logically leads us to the announcement yesterday by CoreOS ( Eps.163 & Eps.107) about “ Rocket”. Have you had a chance to play with it yet?
Topic 5 - What else are you tinkering with that’s cool these days?
Topic 6 - We should just announce now that Nick will be a monthly guest and him and Brian are going to discuss all the startups they invent while drinking at tradeshows.
