Interview

Interview with Shiven Ramji, VP of Product at DigitalOcean

“Despite Kubernetes’ growing popularity, it is still often challenging for developers to manage manually”

DigitalOcean’s Kubernetes as a Service is now available with production-ready functionality and full customer support. In short, developers of all skill levels can now harness the power of Kubernetes to simplify modern app development. We talked to VP of Product at DigitalOcean about this offering, its features and more.

Interview with Matt Ellis, Director of Product Manager and Head of Open Source at TIBCO

Flogo enables developers to build microservices or functions with a browser-based flow designer

Project Flogo is a Flow-based process engine written in Go. As the project continues to mature, it has expanded to simplifying the notion of event-driven apps by providing multiple action implementations for various event processing techniques. We talked to Matt Ellis, Director of Product Manager and Head of Open Source at TIBCO about project Flogo, its future, why developers should use it and more.

Interview with Ilya Pupko, Chief Architect at Jitterbit

“For blockchain technology to be useful, it must be enabled by APIs first”

All technology needs a voice, in a figurative sense, and that voice is an API. To package your technology as a product, you need to build an API for it. In the same way, blockchain needs to be packaged with an API in order to be a product. We talked to Ilya Pupko, Chief Architect at Jitterbit about blockchain’s need for strong APIs, how the API economy is set to revolutionize blockchain and more.

Interview with Hart Montgomery, Hyperledger Ursa maintainer

“Anyone who needs a modular cryptographic library for blockchain might find Hyperledger Ursa useful”

Hyperledger Ursa is the latest project to be accepted by Hyperledger’s Technical Steering Committee. This modular, flexible cryptography library is intended for—but not limited to—use by other projects in Hyperledger. We talked to Hart Montgomery, Hyperledger Ursa maintainer about the goals of this project, its two modules, future and more.

Interview with Diane Mueller, Red Hat’s director of Community Development for OpenShift

“The power of Kubernetes & OpenShift lies not only in the capabilities but also in the broad ecosystem of products”

Last month, Red Hat announced the general availability of OpenShift Container Platform 3.11 – an important release because it incorporates the first wave of technology from the CoreOS acquisition. We talked to Diane Mueller, Red Hat’s director of Community Development for OpenShift about the importance of this release, their plan to continue innovating both in and around Kubernetes and Operators & more.

Interview with Dr. Byung Ik Ahn, CEO of Fantom Foundation

Limited scalability hampers blockchain’s adoption: “If blockchain is not scalable, it’s simply not suitable for widespread use”

While blockchain’s usefulness is profound, it’s not the solution to everything — it cannot solve every problem across every industry in all parts of the world — and failing to understand this usually sets people up for failure. We caught up with Dr. Byung Ik Ahn, CEO of Fantom Foundation to chat about blockchain’s evolution, potential solutions to its growing pains, Fantom’s goals and more.

Interview with Dan Middleton, chair of the Hyperledger Technical Steering Committee

“For blockchain to be really successful, we have to understand where and why to deploy it”

Blockchain is on everyone’s lips these days but, as we learned during the recent Blockchain Technology Conference, before choosing blockchain, you have to ask yourself one question: Do I really need it? We caught up with Dan Middleton, chair of the Hyperledger Technical Steering Committee to discuss blockchain’s technical challenges, the dos and don’ts and what fascinates him about this technology.

Interview with Neil Charney, Chief Marketing Officer at Docker

“The acquisitions by established enterprise technology vendors signal the value of containerization in enterprise IT strategies”

Following IBM’s proposed acquisition of Red Hat, it’s clear that other companies are reacting and looking for acquisition strategies to assemble a container platform capable of managing containerized applications across multi-cloud environments. We talked to Neil Charney, Chief Marketing Officer at Docker about the impact of the acquisitions on Docker and the entire enterprise container platform market.

Interview with Andrew Henry, software developer for SGT Inc.

Getting started with NASA’s Open MCT framework: Familiarity with JavaScript is required

Developers can now take advantage of NASA’s web-based mission control framework for data visualization on mobile & desktop; they can build dashboards for data analysis and situational awareness using the same tool that NASA uses for some of its spacecraft missions. We talked to Andrew Henry, a software developer for SGT Inc. who works on the Open MCT project at NASA’s Ames Research Center about how to get started with Open MCT, how they rewrote the plugin API so that the framework can be extended without imposing third-party libraries on developers & more.

Interview with Murray Rode, Chief Executive Officer at TIBCO

“Java risks setbacks if it becomes controlled by one or two mega vendors”

The news that tech giant IBM is acquiring Red Hat made waves throughout the industry. We talked to Murray Rode, Chief Executive Officer of TIBCO about the impact of the acquisition on the open source ecosystem, the multi-cloud trend and more. Since both IBM and Red Hat are deeply involved in the Java ecosystem, we also discussed what the Java market has to lose if things go south.

Interview with Brian Johnson, co-founder and CEO of DivvyCloud

Cloud sprawl can be avoided with good tagging practices

The cloud has its share of benefits such as greater flexibility, accessibility, and resilience but it also has flaws. We talked to Brian Johnson, co-founder and CEO of DivvyCloud to learn more about the impact of “cloud sprawl” and how to avoid it.
