Tech N' Talk Summary

In this Tech N' Talk, Anne E Currie shared some of her insights from her forthcoming book “The Cloud Native Attitude (or How to Move Fast without Breaking Everything)”, which will be available from Container Solutions in October 2017. Anne attempts to answer the question "What On Earth is Cloud Native & Why Are People Using It?"

Anne has spent the past months researching and interviewing a wide range organizations with cloud-native deployments to find out how customers are actually using cloud-native technology (as opposed to how vendors perceive it is being used). In this podcast, Anne reveals her findings and discusses some of the unexpected reasons why people are moving to cloud-native. Hint: It’s not what you’d expect (especially if you are a vendor or an engineer working on one of the myriad cloud-native platforms or tools), so listen up.
