From Kafka to Kubernetes: The best of Cloud Native in 15 Minutes

December 18, 2019 Derrick Harris

Back in June, we launched the Cloud Native in 15 Minutes podcast to help listeners get up to speed on some of the hottest—and soon to be most important—technologies in enterprise IT. Guests have included the creators of technologies such as Kubernetes, Apache Kafka, and MongoDB, as well as experts in the worlds of open source, artificial intelligence, and enterprise startups. Now, as the holiday season kicks into full swing, we're sharing some of the highlights of our first 6 months.

This first best-of episode focuses on the technologies that make cloud-native computing and modern architectures happen, featuring excerpts from interviews with:

  • Neha Narkhede (co-creator of Apache Kafka; co-founder and CTO of Confluent). Full episode here.
  • Joe Beda (co-creator of Kubernetes; principal engineer at VMware). Full episode here.
  • Eliot Horowitz (co-creator, co-founder, and CTO of MongoDB). Full episode here.

  • Guy Podjarny (co-founder and president of Snyk). Full episode here.
