Andreas (aka Andi) Grabner and Brian Wilson are veterans of the digital performance world. Combined they have seen too many applications not scaling and performing up to expectations. With more rapid deployment models made possible through continuous delivery and a mentality shift sparked by DevOps they feel it’s time to share their stories. In each episode, they and their guests discuss different topics concerning performance, ranging from common performance problems for specific technology platforms to best practices in development, testing, deploying and monitoring software performance and user experience. Be prepared to learn a lot about metrics.
Andi & Brian both work at Dynatrace, where they get to witness more real-world customer performance issues than they can TPS report at.
Is Cloud Native just a synonym for Kubernetes? How to make sense of the sea of tools & frameworks that pop up daily? What can we learn from others that made the transformation and most of all: Where do we start?
We got answer to all these and many more questions from Priyanka Sharma (@pritianka) – Dir. of Alliances at GitLab and Governing Board Member at CNCF (Cloud Native Computing Foundation). In her work, Priyanka has seen everything from small startups to large enterprises leveraging Cloud Native technology, tools and mindset to build, deploy & run better software faster. She advises to start incrementally and whatever you do in your transformation make sure to always focus on: Visibility (which leads to transparency), Easy of Collaboration (which increases productivity & creativity) and Setting Guardrails (this ensures you stay compliant & avoids common pitfalls).
We ended the conversation around the idea of needing “Cloud Native Aware Developers” which can follow best practices or standards such as those promoted by CNCF or OpenSource projects such as keptn.sh
