On today’s episode of The New Stack Makers, TNS founder Alex Williams caught up with Kelsey Hightower, Google developer advocate, and Michelle Noorali, Deis software engineer, at CloudNativeCon/KubeCon EU. Hightower discussed the need to “Never stop learning,” adding that he is currently focused on learning how to empathize with people using the Kubernetes platform. In stark contrast to last year’s event, both Hightower and Noorali noted that the 2017 CloudNativeCon/KubeCon EU conference was less about the newness of running a Kubernetes cluster, but more about day-two issues, such as managing long-term cluster security, building one’s own toolkit for working with Kubernetes, and operators.
