Tell us about your background, the origins of the company, and a little bit about the founding team. Topic 2 - Let’s start by framing the day in the life of a data scientist. There’s raw data, there’s a data sorting/organizing process, there’s model building, there’s results and analysis, and the cycle continues, etc. What parts are solved problems, what parts are commoditized, and where is there still room for improvement?Topic 3 - Now that we understand today’s AI/ML/DataScience landscape, let’s talk about how Snorkel Flow and automated data labeling is able to evolve those environmentsTopic 4 - Application Studio seems like the intersection of Low-Code and Industry-specific templates and the Python toolkit that data scientists understand. Walk us through the mindset of today’s data scientists in how they think about the “developer” part of their jobs.Topic 5 - What are some of the frequent use-cases or business problem areas that you’ve seen drive early adoption of the Snorkel platform? Topic 6 - Where do you see Snorkel fitting into the broader ecosystem of AI capabilities that companies may already have in place? FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

While every companies believes they are a software company today, not every company is getting 25-40x revenue multiple from the market.  All repatriation calculations begin with, “if you run a highly efficient data center”All repatriation calculations next involve, “assuming you have the talent to run a cloud”Repatriation is technical debt. How does your company typically handle that?Less than 100% repatriation creates multiple operational models (ops, billing, security, etc.)Most companies use a subset of the features in any given cloud.Can you create a financial situation in your data center that’s similar to the cloud? FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

Before we dive into today’s topic, let’s talk about your background and what motivated you to found Unqork. Topic 2 - There are a ton of ways that some technologies get positioned as silver bullets or catch-all. First of all, how do you think about this space from the perspective of a business user? Topic 3 - Let’s talk about the distinction between “low-code” and “no-code” and how the tradeoffs or differences actually impact users of the system.Topic 4 - With systems like these, there is an expectation that the system has quite a bit of knowledge, which creates these “highly opinionated” workflows. You’ve worked at large companies, which also have opinions based on existing culture or experience. How do you work groups through adopting these newer concepts?Topic 5 - This segment of the market is extremely “hyped” at this stage, with lots of companies.

Before we dive into the latest serverless trends, let’s talk a little bit about your background and focus at Datadog.Topic 1a - This is the 2nd year of the State of Serverless report. Tell us about the scope and the methodology used.Topic 2 - Let’s begin by talking about the growth (by breadth) of the overall Serverless market. Who is using serverless, and where are they consuming it from? Topic 3 - Your data shows that AWS Lambda is evolving in a couple different ways - both shorter lived usage (average) and involved in a broader set of use-cases (via Step Functions). It sounds like Serverless is becoming more mainstream as it branches out.Topic 4 - Language popularity is always an area of interest - what are the most popular languages for building serverless apps? Topic 5 - Given how granular Lambda billing has become, and how frameworks like Serverless and Step Functions are being used, were you surprised at the low rate of automation around serverless functions? Topic 6 - This year it seems like Edge use-cases for Serverless have really grown. I’d expect this to continue as we’re seeing both CloudFlare and AWS recently expanding their Serverless edge capabilities within their CDN offerings.FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

Before we dive into the work you’re doing with Serverless, let’s talk about your background. Topic 2 - Let’s begin with “What is Serverless at AWS in 2021?” Sometimes it’s Lambda, sometimes it's a database, sometimes it's a CDN edge service. When is it App-Centric and when is it NoOps-centric?Topic 3 - AWS Lambda has expanded in functionality quite a bit over the years. Walk us through how it’s evolved across languages, event-sources, functions vs. containers, etc. Topic 4 - How do you think about Serverless use-cases? What are common usage patterns? Topic 5 - For a while, Lambda was mostly focused within the AWS ecosystem. Is it expanding to include 3rd-party services, or custom-built tools from customers/companies? Topic 6 - We’ve done a couple recent shows about event-driven applications. I tend to think about Serverless (or FaaS) as mostly event-driven apps. How is that space evolving?FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

Give yourself some foundations to build upon. Early in your career, it’s OK to take risks on companies, if you are able to get a lot of experience (either breadth or depth).Most people in tech don’t have a huge cash-out (IPO, Acquisition, etc.), but if you do, bank it to give yourself options (future savings, job hopping, change of career, etc.)Have a side hustle. Have a mix of business and technical skills.Always be learning something new. Being able to learn new stuff is the skill. Find a community of people (online or live) that can be mentors, sounding boards, or just “trusted” people. Find managers that support you, encourage you, and promote you. Sometimes ride with them on the next journey.Title, salary, job scope or location…..you can only pick 2 (maybe 3Most people leave bad managers, not the company. Work/Life balance is really hard to find. There’s no right answer, it’ll come and go in waves. Ride waves when they come, because they don’t always come back. Work on your communication skills. FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

Within the platform, they all had a model for allocating compute resources, mostly through the use of Linux LXC and cGroups -- what would become containers. dotCloud was the PaaS company started by Solomon Hykes that eventually became Docker. LESSONS LEARNED FOR THE FUTUREContainers were a fundamental building block for next-gen applications and platforms.Docker/docker created a massive community of users, but frustrated the ecosystem of partners. Project / Company naming conflicts are very hard to resolve (“docker” vs. “Docker”)Successful ecosystems allow a broad set of participants to monetize different elements of the technology. Not having a monetization model is not a good plan. Docker was the last software company to not monetize through offering a managed/SaaS cloud service. FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet

Software supply-chains have been in the news quite a bit lately. Before we get into that, tell us about your background and what gets you passionate about developer productivity? Topic 2 - Let’s talk about “the State of Developer Productivity” in 2021. What are developers able to do well, and where are their big bottlenecks today? Topic 3 - I constantly get questions of “do we fix this with better tools, or better organizations. I’m pretty sure the answer is a combination of both, but do you see one side or the other having a bigger impact? Topic 4 - GitLab does a very good job bringing together the tools developers need across the software-supply chain. When do you see an integrated “platform” gain more adoption, and when does the developer desire for “pick our tools” tend to stay in place?   Topic 5 - Is the Solarwinds hack making a lot of companies rethink how they build software? Topic 6 - What are some of the best tips you have to help developer teams get more efficient, more productive? FEEDBACK?Email: show at thecloudcast dot netTwitter: @thecloudcastnet
