On today's episode of The New Stack Makers, we sat down with Aparna Sinha Group Project Manager for Kubernetes at Google, Google Engineering Manager Phillip Wittrock, and Aaron Crickenberger Samsung SDS Cloud Architect. The topic of today's discussion from KubeCon & CloudNativeCon was the future of Kubernetes as we head into the new year and look ahead to 2018.

Like a lot of startups, CircleCI started with a monolith, running on Amazon Web Services (AWS). But there was only so much that could be done to keep the monolith performing when by 2015 the company started to scale. CircleCI had built its own job scheduler in 2011 because there was nothing on the market that matched what they needed. On today's episode of The New Stack Makers, TNS Founder Alex Williams caught up with CircleCI's CTO Rob Zuber in a live-streamed discussion to dig deeper into the architecture workings behind the organization.
By 2015, the company had made a conscious decision to use third=party tools instead of building their own, including Kubernetes, Docker containers, AWS, and Nomad. In managing Kuberenetes on AWS, Zuber noted that CircleCI has faced some issues as Kubernetes is not officially supported by AWS, but that the overall experience has been positive.
“In terms of managing our own infrastructure, what mattered to us was the ecosystem. Kubernetes is a scheduler, but with it are all of these tools people have built to help us do our job. It was becoming pretty clear Kubernetes was a leader in terms of the amount of support it was getting.”

.net core, .net standard, c#, container ecosystem, f#, raspberry pi, the new stack makers, visual basic, windows
To the multitude of languages supported by a runtime that is internal to Docker, appc, and OCI containers, add Visual Basic, C#, and F#. Last month, Microsoft re-engineered its open source .NET Core runtime with version 2.0, to easily execute code in any of these three languages — at one time, exclusively associated with the Windows operating system — in any container, on any platform.
“When the .NET Standard 2.0 was being developed. . . I had a .NET 1.0, 15-year-old application that was part of my senior project [in 2000],” explained Scott Hanselman, Microsoft’s principal open source program manager, in a discussion with Scott Fulton for The New Stack Makers. “It was a tiny virtual machine, and it was going to simulate an abstract virtual machine. This was the kind of code that you’d write 15 years ago. It’s not idiomatic 2017 code. It’s classically old, .NET code. It is as much a legacy application as it could be.”
