Topic 1 - Welcome back to the podcast. We last spoke a little over a year ago on the initial topic of public cloud training. Y’all threw in a little blurb at the end that you were doing all of this on a framework you were starting to call “serverless”. Things have exploded from there. Give us an update on A Cloud Guru first of all.
Topic 2 - Let’s jump into Serverless and the state of the “industry” since then. You are operating one of the “oldest” serverless frameworks around and have built a very successful business on it. Tell us first of all about the current state of operations at A Cloud Guru. How have things progressed in the face of some pretty incredible growth over the last 2 years.
Topic 3 - Serverless Conference is coming up in Austin at the end of the month. A Cloud Guru has been the principal organizer of the conference. How have the events changed and matured? What was your favorite session or moment from past events? What do we have to look forward to in Austin?
Topic 4 - For anyone that’s watching the serverless movement from the sidelines, how would you summarize it’s current status today? Is it just AWS Lambda and a fragmentation of everything else?
