Topic 1 - Welcome back to the show. Tell us about some of your most recent projects, and all the places where people can find your training?
Topic 2 - Let’s talk about the State of Kubernetes, level of maturity of users/usage. Where do you think we are at the end of 2020?
Topic 3 - Who do you find are trying to learn and use Kubernetes, more Infra/Ops, or AppDev, or somewhere in between (DevOps, DevSecOps, SRE, etc.)?
Topic 3a - Where do you see people succeeding, and where are they still struggling to adjust to the requirements of Kubernetes?
Topic 4 - The ecosystem of projects around Kubernetes (immutable Linux, Operators, Service Mesh, Prometheus, OPA, Serverless/Knative, etc.) has gotten very broad. How do you find people are dealing with all these moving pieces?
Topic 5 - There are a lot of ways to engage with Kubernetes these days - DIY (OSS), vendor distributions, Kubernetes on your laptop, web IDEs, Hosted Services (simple & complex). What do you recommend to people, or do you see trends about how people best engage with Kubernetes?
Topic 6 - Do you think it’s OK that Kubernetes doesn’t have a “developer model”, but rather many different options? Do you think this evolves in 2021?
