TC Currie is a journalist, writer, data geek, poet, body positive activist and occasional lingerie model. After spending 25 years in software development working with data movement and accessibility, she wrote her first novel during National Novel Writing Month and fell in love with writing. Several of her tech articles have appeared on the front page of SlashDot. Her essays have been published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Power of Gratitude, and won the silver medal at the Solas Travel Awards. TC now splits her time between writing journalist articles, personal essays, reviews, poetry, and finishing her mystery novel “Runaway Rembrandt.” Her collection of Transformational Poetry, “The Empty Promises of Plastic Wrap” is being turned into a one-woman show. She’s glad to be back in the Bay Area after a 6-month digital nomad trip of the US. This is a huge and amazing country, but there really is no place like home.

Yaron Haviv, CTO and co-founder of Iguazio joins TC Currie for this episode of The New Stack Makers. Haviv’s deep technological experience in the fields of big data, cloud, storage and networking led to him leading the team creating Iguazio’s new product nuclio.
This open-source project, launched in December 2017, is an extremely fast serverless platform with a real-time processing engine. Extremely fast meaning 100x faster than AWS Lambda. “Everyone knows that the value of data diminishes over time,” said Haviv, “so that means when the data starts flowing into the system, you need to start aggregating contextualizing and acting on it as it flows.”

Isaac Mosquera, CTO & co-founder at Armory.io sat down to talk testing mircorservices in production with The New Stack San Francisco Correspondent TC Currie as part of The New Stack’s series on Microservices.
Within Armory platform platform is a product called Canary which is one tool to help test microservices in production. The name comes from the traditional miners’ practice of taking a canary with them into coal mines. When mined, coal can release an odorless toxic gas that would kill miners where they stood. The canary became an early warning system. If the canary died, the miners booked it out of there.

For this episode of The New Stack Makers, Host TC Currie is joined by Steve Herrod, VC at General Catalyst where he focuses on infrastructure. He recently published an article on LinkedIn called Cloud vs. Edge – This is Not a Cage Match.
“It comes down to the use cases,” Herrod said about the difference between Cloud and Edge computing, "You don’t want your car’s IoT chip to have to go to the cloud before it decides to make the turn, but it’s faster to go to the cloud to crunch a bunch of sensor data from thousands of IoT devices."

Aubrey Blanche, Global Head of Diversity & Inclusion at Atlassian, joins TC Currie to talk about the difference between diversity and inclusion and why anyone should care. “Diversity is being invited to the party,” she said. “Inclusion is being glad you’re there.” It turns out, Blanche explains, that when you create an inclusive culture, business thrives. Employees who feel comfortable bringing their authentic selves to work perform better, are happier at work which leads to less turnover which all leads to profits.

How best should an organization transition its old behemoth monolith architecture into the bright shiny new world of microservices? The principal software engineer of the brightest and shiniest service out there, Lyft, tells us you don't have to. Matt Klein told The New Stack Scott Fulton at PagerDuty Summit 2017, that a start up, just like Lyft was a few short years ago, can develop its own monolith more easily than it can develop complex microservices.
