Today we have a combined package of two interviews I recently did with Daniel Bryant and Matt Chotin. Bryant is one of the people The New Stack looks to for his insightful analysis. He is an independent consultant, speaker and writer. Chotin is a well-respected technologist who works as senior director of developer initiatives at AppDynamics, where he is responsible for leading AppDynamics "products to better support developers in improving improving performance and achieving business outcomes." Our topic of discussion for this podcast: When discussing microservices, how would you characterize the state of the market?
The wave of development interest in containers is growing as financial investment also grows. We first discuss the state of the market with Bryant, followed by Chotin who talked to the overall maturity of the users who are developing microservices.
More microservices means a lot more containers in all stages of development, deployment and management. That ultimately is great news for the developer tool community. People are building continuous delivery models based on DevOps practices delivered across any thinkable possible infrastructure. It’s these DevOps practices that will remain largely cultural as the board room transfixes on digital transformation and uses that paradigm as the basis for spending over time.
