About this Episode

The sheer size of KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2018 in Shanghai drawing an estimated 8,000 attendees attests to how the open source movement is both mainstream and plays a key role in software development today. The thousands of attendees also reflect the exploding number of people involved in the open source community worldwide who play a part in this renaissance era of open stack development. The open source community can also sleep easier at night, knowing that they are also playing a role in making the world a better place in a number of ways, benefiting the software community as well as the end users who benefit from new applications that have the potential to induce positive changes in our daily lives.

While at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2018, Alex Williams, founder and editor-in-chief of The New Stack, had the good fortune of being able to host a podcast with three people involved in exciting open source projects. On hand to discuss their work were:

Jared Watts, senior maintainer on the Rook project (hosted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF); which offers storage architectures for cloud native environments;

Ihor Dvoretskyi, developer advocate at CNCF; the now fabled organization fostering growth and helping to sustain container ecosystems;

Wei Fu, director of engineering, leading VMware Cloud PKS, a SaaS offering for Kubernetes from VMware.
