This week on The New Stack Context weekly news wrap podcast, we talk with TNS European correspondent Mark Boyd about his fascinating story on how serverless architectures are turning developers into accountants. Or, at least, making cost a central consideration of how applications are designed.
We also chat about the recently announced acquisition of CoreOS by enterprise Linux giant Red Hat.
