Learning Kubernetes Ingress, with Nirmal Mehta
I chat with Docker Captain Nirmal Mehta of Booz Allen Hamilton about Kubernetes Ingress controllers and resources. There seems to be a lot of confusion around them, the different choices, and what to do for incoming HTTP connections in Kubernetes.

Serverless Docker and Kubernetes in 2020
I answer some audience questions about serverless, and the future of containers... when a lot of the news out there is talking about functions as a service is "the future of everything". As usual, the answer is "it depends", but if you're a team that's already doing microservices and containers, and you're looking to deploy smaller features faster and cheaper, then serverless might help. For most of us though, writing and shipping functions only, rather than traditional applications, is years away, because we have bigger problems to solve first, like speeding up our deployment processes or improving our monitoring and recovery.

Kubernetes Future with Kelsey Hightower and Jérôme Petazzoni
In this episode, I chat with a powerhouse combo of Kelsey Hightower and Jérôme Petazzoni, who's combined influence in the container space can not be overstated. I was a bit nervous for this one, having such big stars on the show n' all, but I think it went great as we dove into various Kubernetes and container topics. This is surely "one for the books"!

Docker and Kubernetes Questions on Tools, Best Practices, and More
In this episode, I talk about proxying with NGINX vs. Traefik, and the proper protocol for image tagging in a CI environment. I give a quick "elevator pitch" on Kubernetes, and I talk about service meshes like Istio. I also cover adding a conditional healthcheck to delay a service startup until another service is healthy.
