Cloud Native Challenges and Opportunities with Continuous Delivery
"They focused too much on developers. They chose a model that would release every two weeks, however they didn’t make changes to the operations model. They didn’t change their release engineering process. Ops teams that were used to changes twice a year, we’re now being told they had to ship software every two weeks. That’s a pretty radical change in process and philosophy."

Build DevOps Teams, Start Your Digital Transformation
"Within the team structures, relegating tasks in ways that better make use of team members’ experience is beneficial, PagerDuty’s Stratton said. Traditionally, for example, senior developers and engineers have often been in charge of developing new software features while the junior staff has been tasked with bug fixes. However, it is the senior team members who likely have the experience to better understand the entire system that fixes often require. “Maybe as a senior engineer it is not as interesting to troubleshoot,” Stratton said. “But having experience gives you that understanding of how the system is built.”

PagerDuty CEO: DevOps Success Relies on Teams, Empathy, and Inclusion
"“There is often chaos before there is order,” she acknowledged. The way people are working is changing. The workforce is distributed and needs to collaborate and work well together because minutes and seconds count. Real-time operations are about technology, she said, but it’s more about helping people get the most out of the time and investment and tools they have to get the best outcome for their customers and their businesses."

How GE Digital Tackled the Stateful / Stateless Problem for Industrial IoT
"As engineers (including those at the IETF) have come to realize, persistent data will always be a necessary resource for both server-side applications and client-side apps. And the need for the Internet of Things (IoT) applications to maintain a reliable, persistent network of connected sensors and apparati, makes a stable and self-contained network state data platform vitally necessary."

Breaking Through the Big Business Barricade with Open Source
"Software is eating the world, and no company can sit on the sidelines anymore. What attracted me to both of these companies was their vision and their history of evolving with the industry and customer needs. Each of these companies had already started their transformational journey to open source, and I knew that I could be a part of that."

Meet the New Docker CEO, Steve Singh
"Docker relies on an open source culture, though it doesn’t appear you’ve had a lot of experience working with open source communities to date…

That’s fair. I have a view that is shared across the executive team and even the board: The next generation companies will embrace open source, for a simple reason. Open source embraces the fact that genius, that creativity, that contributions will be made from any corner of the world. In my view, the companies that embrace this, and add value on top of that stack, will always accelerate faster than companies that don’t."

Atlassian Futurist Sees Teamwork, not Chatbots, Defining the Future of Work
"Not to worry, said Dominic Price, who is the head of research and development and resident “work futurist” at Atlassian. During a recent phone interview he noted that in the last 144 years, technology created more jobs than it took away. True, there has been mass displacement and the actual roles that remain are very different, but overall more jobs have been created. He doesn’t think artificial intelligence, or intelligence assistance, or machine learning, or whatever term you want to use will be any different."

Notes from Reality: The Philosophy of AI Ethics. An Interview with Dr. David Bray - by @jtaschek
"In my professional experience, we’re not there yet with AI where it’s a competitor in terms of what you might see in a science fiction movie like The Matrix. Human use of AI might displace jobs, and the jury is still out whether more or less jobs will be created as a result, so in that sense AI might be competition. Job displacement raises questions of ethics in terms of what do organizations and societies owe individuals whose jobs are displaced because AI can do them more quickly or more cheaply, should we help them re-train for another job and if so what’s the best way?"

Notes from Reality, an Interview with Paul Greenberg
"Both augmented reality and artificial intelligence can improve the immersiveness of a customer’s experience and/or the depth and interest in the engagement of the customer with the company. The reason isn’t the tech behind it, though. It’s because the content provided by augmented reality (see Minecraft and the HoloLens for “immersive coolness”) appeals to the visceral in the individual customer — which means it is a or adds to a tailored, created consumable experience."
