December 15, 2017
Aaron Delp & Brian Gracely
Aaron and Brian talk with Rod Johnson (@springrod, Co-Founder & CEO @atomist) about the evolution of development frameworks, developer productivity, the Spring community, and how Atomist is helping simplify the experience of developers interacting with containers and Kubernetes and microservices.
Topic 1 - Thanks for joining us today Rod, for those that aren’t familiar, give everyone a bit about your background prior to Atomist and your background with development platforms (sold SpringSource to VMware for $420M in 2009).
Topic 2 - You have seen a pretty amazing transition in development platforms over the last 5-7 years. What trends made you decide to start a new company?
Topic 3 - This leads us to your most recent announcement, a Series A round and launch of Atomist. Tell everyone about Atomist. As I understand it this is a development automation platform. What problems are you trying to solve?
Topic 4 - How is Development Automation different from traditional CI/CD?
Topic 5 - What use cases are applications are your customers doing today with Atomist? Is this primarily cloud native apps and development on public cloud platforms? How are folks both consuming and creating?
