On AWS and Pivotal, opinions and overlaps

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 23:27:21 +0000

After a couple of back to back weeks in which I attended AWS re:Invent and SpringOne Platform, with a little time since to think about what I had learned, I got to thinking about the nature of Opinion as Code. Frankly we shouldn’t expect AWS to be too opinionated. Just consider Amazon’s heritage. It began

ICYMI: the re:Invent recap

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 23:15:00 +0000

We really like the Slackchat format. So much so, that we stole it. This week we had a conversation about the recent AWS re:Invent 2017 conference. There was so much news from the show it’s almost impossible to boil down. My own key post is due tomorrow. But in the meantime, check out the chat

Monki Gras is coming, the goose is getting fat

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 21:57:54 +0000

While some of you are slowing down for the year end (not those involved in enterprise IT obviously, you’re frantically trying to close deals), we are ramping up. That’s right – it’s Monki Gras season again. For 2018 our conference dates fall on the 1st and 2nd of February, immediately preceding Fosdem again. The conference

The 12 Factor transformation at Tesco: on retail IT

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 23:36:39 +0000

This morning I saw a tweet from Stack Overflow Jobs that caught my eye – Head of Systems Engineering – Compute Platforms at Tesco PLC. Tesco is embarking on a transformation project covering public and private cloud platforms. “The Infrastructure Engineering team design, develop and operate all infrastructure used by Tesco Technology across our data centres,

Just watch this

It’s a good, no, great talk about principles of leadership by Bryan Cantrill. At turns hilarious, angry, and poignant, it is quite simply one of the best talks I have ever seen about what we’re building in tech and why and how to do better. We need to move forward, take responsibility and begin to tear

The world caught up and the future happened. What now? My talk at SpringOne 2017

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 23:24:25 +0000

So I had 10 minutes to talk about The Future in the Thursday morning keynote at Spring One 2017. On the same bill as Eric Brewer… no pressure then. Funnily enough in many ways it’s harder to prepare a 10 minute talk than one that lasts 30. “I made this one longer only because I

PL/SQL microservices for real at Garmin

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 02:27:56 +0000

When I think of microservices I have an image of developers at startups in SOMA writing in Go. It’s a cliché. Today at SpringOne 2017 though I caught up Anand Natarajan of Garmin – the GPS technology company, and he explained that with a solid investment in training, microservices can be productive for developer communities

On guard rails, observability, and owning your Michelin star

Tue, 05 Dec 2017 08:04:14 +0000

Tonight at dinner we had a choice – grab a quick bite in the bar at the Intercontinental in San Francisco, or have a meal in the adjoining restaurant, Luce. Fintan said Luce has a Michelin star, and privilege kicked in. When you’re doing a lot of travelling, sometimes it’s nice to just enjoy a

beginning to think this was the most important signal at AWS re:Invent 2017

AWS: working backwards into the enterprise

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 23:35:43 +0000

Amazon Web Services (AWS) marketing and programs are generally technically oriented – about products, services and features. But as the company evolves, so does its relationship with customers as it becomes a more strategic supplier. Recently there has been a movement to provide more guidance about processes, people and culture. Enterprises are fascinated by Amazon’s culture
