A Year of #c9d9: Our Top Continuous Discussions Podcast Episodes from 2015

We started our Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) video podcast in late 2014 as a way for the DevOps community to connect with each others - sharing experiences, lessons learned and tips - to accelerate our mutual success.

Each #c9d9 episode focuses on a different topic relating to your software delivery process, and features different speakers from around the development and IT community. Every two weeks, we get together for a casual video chat (over Hangout) to share best practices - and war stories - relating to real-world examples of implementing Agile, DevOps and Continuous Delivery.

For those of you wondering why the hashtag is #c9d9: #c9d9 is a play on the programmer meme of shortening long words to (first letter)(total number of letters - 1). E.g., programmers call "internationalization" "i18n". It's in the same vain as Andreessen Horowitz' ‘a16z‘ - a way for us to shorten a long phrase so that we could more easily use it on social media, etc.

After a little over a year on the air, the #c9d9 series has seen over 30 episodes, with more than 90(!) guest panelists who shared their expertise with us - and we thank them all.

@DevOpsSummit Stories
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all.
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
