Ben Kehoe is a Cloud Robotics Research Scientist at iRobot and Serverless Hero among many things.  After an exciting twitter thread which centered around what the upcoming AWS Outposts product could do (and perhaps be limited to) and the “why on-prem?” question that many ask, Ben joined me for a powerful conversation where we explore the advantages and challenges of cloud-owned features and so much which will be important to cloud ops and cloud developer teams everywhere.  

See that conversation here:  https://twitter.com/discoposse/status/1133459635862687744 

Thank you to Ben for taking the twitter chat live and sharing great insights!

The team from Clubhouse.io join me to chat about their approach to bringing a developer-focused experience with their platform.  This is a great discussion that talks much deeper on how being in what some may view as a crowded market is actually not crowded when you differentiate and provide distinct and focused products.  Big thanks to Kurt Schrader and Mitch Wainer for sharing their insights and experiences.

As more open source projects become commercially driven (rightly so) there is a challenge among open source community folks as to when it is right to use open core, open source, or the dreaded fork.  Rob Hirschfeld joins us for a great discussion that started on the news of AWS launching Open DIstro for Elasticsearch and we take on some challenging topics around open source, monetization, and commercialization of open platforms and products.  

Rob refers to a great Gitlab talk which discusses open source business models which is also a must-watch here.
