Released a few weeks ago, Pivotal Cloud Foundry 1.8 is chock full of new features and improvements. We talk with Jared Ruckle about them, delving into security, databases, and new services. These features deliver on the Pivotal Cloud Foundry goal of speeding up time to market (with faster release cycles) and, yet, still being a general purpose application platform that organizations can use to run all their customer software. We also discuss another recent piece from Jared on opinionated platforms—check out that tree house!
In the news, we cover the recent data breach at Yahoo!, Windows Server 2016 and Docker support, Azure’s ever growing geographic foot-print, and our hopes and dreams for the rumored Twitter acquisition.
