On this week's episode, we talk with technology evangelist Ravi Lachhman from AppDynamics, a sponsor of The New Stack, about the rise of software development kits for container orchestrators. Also joining us today are TNS Managing Editor Joab Jackson and Editor-in-Chief Alex Williams.
Lachhman wrote a post for us this week about packaging your applications for delivery in this new, complicated cloud-native world where clients and end users want choice as to where and how to install your product.

This week on The New Stack Context podcast we talk with Pivotal Director of Technical Marketing Dan Baskette and Pivotal Senior Staff Engineer Mark Fisher about Knative, which is a new tool Google and a few other partners such as Pivotal built to help developers build functions on top of Kubernetes. Also joining us in this episode is TNS San Francisco correspondent Alex Handy, who spoke about some of the other news from this week's Google Next 2018 conference.
Knative is an open source software layer which turns Kubernetes into a runtime for serverless functions. Google announced the project and released it on GitHub this week — and it seems to be the news of the week out of Google Next. Baskette contributed a post to the site this week, offering all the technical details of Knative. The New Stack sponsor Pivotal has provided the eventing model from its own Project Riff to Knative and is building its upcoming Pivotal Function Service on Knative.

Hacker News and the Twitterverse were alight this week with discussion of Datadog engineer Jason Moiron’s blog post titled “Is Kubernetes Too Complicated?” This article hints at a Kubernetes backlash afoot, with ongoing concerns about its complexity. We speak with TNS correspondent Scott Fulton, who has a TNS article summarizing these issues.

“Serverless computing,” at the time of this writing, is an emerging ideal that’s past the embryonic stage, yet not quite fully formed. It has a variety of advocates, some of whom make more sense than others.
But what does the term “serverless” mean, exactly? We speak with two such advocates who put forth the most sensible cases thus far: Michael Hausenblas, a developer and developer advocate at Mesosphere, and author of a recent New Stack article entitled, “Making Sense of Serverless Computing”; and Chad Arimura, the CEO of Iron.io and a previous guest of our podcasts.
