  1. Welcome to the show. You’re our first guest from Asia, joining us from Sri Lanka. Tell us about your background and the types of technology projects you’re working on today.
  2. Recently, you wrote a book about building cloud applications on Azure. Can you talk about what attracted you to use Azure (vs. AWS or other clouds)? Discuss some of the types of applications you’re building.
  3. You have an interesting perspective having worked with companies from multiple parts of the world. Can you give us some perspective on trends in Asia vs. other areas? What business demands are driving their technology decisions?
  4. How do the companies you work with manage data sovereignty and the location of public cloud data centers?
  5. What are some of the core technologies that you’re using these days? How much do you use native Azure services vs. containers vs. other technologies? How are you keeping up with learning those technologies? As you’re beginning to focus on microservices architectures, how are you finding global customers adapting to what that means within their internal IT cultures and processes?

Join us in exploring application and infrastructure changes required for running scalable, observable, and portable apps on Kubernetes.
