Hello, welcome to The New Stack Context, a podcast where we review the week’s hottest news in cloud native technologies/at-scale application development and look ahead to topics we expect will gain more attention in coming weeks.
This week, we recorded the podcast live at the Sensu Summit, which took place live in Portland. Joining us this week are Google Developer Advocate Kelsey Hightower and Sensu CEO Caleb Hailey, to discuss the challenges of microservices monitoring. Many traditional monitoring tools, such as Nagios, or even Amazon Web Services' CloudWatch, fail to capture the full picture of what is going on within a system, the panel agreed.

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.
