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.
Last week on Context we spoke with The New Stack correspondent Mark Boyd who writes this week about the business process and cultural decisions that play into building a serverless application architecture.
Serverless computing, including Functions as a Service, is a rapidly evolving technology that is seeing enterprise adoption on par with containers among companies that run their applications in the public cloud. And experts and visionaries in distributed systems believe serverless is the future of application infrastructure.
TNS readers and listeners have also told us in our survey back in December that serverless is one of your top topics of interest of late. So TNS has recently launched a new feature series focused on serverless technologies that are running every Monday. Mark Boyd is writing several of those pieces for us — the first of which ran last week.
Also, TNS founder Alex Williams is attending DockerCon in San Francisco. He gave us some of the news and highlights from that event. And TNS managing editor Joab Jackson discusses some of the other interesting stories we have on the site.
