11 AM Hangout Today: Docker and Fastly Each Get $40M but are Dev Tools Worth the VC Investment?

Fastly, the content delivery network, received $40 million today. Docker also received $40 million. These are significant investments for essentially what are dev tool and dev infrastructure plays. Are these investments in dev tools going to be the next big thing or is this a small market with limited upside?

In today’s show we will be joined by Co-Host Donnie Berkhkolz of Red Monk; Heavybit Managing Director Tom Drummond; Gil Penchina, a Fastly investor and Matthew Wong, a researcher at CB Insights.
