Tech N' Talk Summary

In this first of the newly launched Tech N' Talk podcast series, we had a great conversation with Google's Aparna Sinha on what’s new in the latest release of Kubernetes 1.7, a milestone release that adds security, storage, and extensibility features motivated by widespread production use of Kubernetes in some of the most demanding enterprise environments.
