About this Episode

Today on The New Stack Context podcast we talk with Kara de la Marck, open source community manager at CloudBees, about when it makes sense to rely on open source tools and when proprietary alternatives should be considered.

The abundance of tooling in the cloud native ecosystem can be overwhelming as teams weigh which options work best for their business needs, infrastructure and workflows. To help provide a framework for the decision, De la Marck wrote a contributed article this week on “Open Source Tools: The Good, The Bad and The Truth in Between” as a preview of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation's upcoming KubeCon and CloudNativeCon San Diego event in a few weeks.
