Monitorama 2019

Listen to all TNS podcasts on Simplecast.

Welcome to The New Stack Context, a weekly wrap-up podcast of all the news and events from the week. This week, we come live from the Monitorama conference, held this week in Portland, where we spoke with Liz Fong Jones, developer advocate at observability service provider Honeycomb.io and Quintessence Anx, developer advocate, at ELK as a Service provider Logz.io.

With Jones and Anx, we discussed the culture of burnout in the IT industry and how companies can better consider the humans who design and run their systems. We also discussed our takeaways from the conference itself. Then later in the show, show host Libby Clark, editorial and marketing director at The New Stack, discusses the top news from the site with Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack, and Joab Jackson, TNS managing editor. We discuss the update to Honeycomb.io’s observability platform, and Palo Alto Networks intended purchase of container security provider Twistlock and serverless security provider PureSec. Oh, also we discuss Pivotal’s new Spring-based OpenJDK distribution, and alarming new research on “deepfake” videos.
