If you’re looking for in-depth technical discussion, innovative ideas and hiring strategies, then look no further. Greg and Conor delve into Gordon’s career at RedHat and his role in the evolution towards cloud-native environments. Gordon shares his innovative perceptions of the industry’s progression to cloud-native, and discusses the validity of being a ‘tech evangelist’, agreeing with Greg on how important it is to continually listen to customers, engage with their business problems and most importantly, learn to ‘unlearn’. ‘A lot of things have to come together.’ Gordon compares the progression of cloud native to the adoption of AI. He mentions how the industry has done well on a narrow set of technologies in the AI space, and how the current explosion in the use of neural networks proves that. Greg and Gordon then explore big data, relational databases and the depth of innovation in that space. They examine how industry innovation is sometimes due to the lighting striking at exactly the right moment, delving into self-driving cars, the necessity of DevOps in the cloud evolution, and how we can reflect industry innovation in our hiring practices.

Durable DevOps Podcast Ep.2 with Roger Strukhoff From CloudEXPO
“The pace of change is faster than it’s ever been before, but it will never be this slow again”. Here’s episode 2 of our ‘Durable DevOps Podcast’, recorded live at the Cloud Expo in Silicon Valley! A thought-provoking exploration of DevOps, antifragility and continuous integration, with the combined insight of senior industry leaders - Greg Bledsoe and Roger Strukhoff. MThree’s Chief Disruption Officer, Greg Bledsoe, is in discussion with the Co-Chair of Cloud Expo, Roger Strukhoff, about building invincible IT for the modern speed of change. You’ll hear Roger explain firsthand the background of the Cloud Expo conference, after its launch in 1994, and how it grew into the groundbreaking event it is today. Greg and Roger go into depth on DevOps, looking into how we are training the younger generation, whilst ensuring that older generations can adapt and build an integrated, holistic approach to DevOps. Greg emphasises how there’s never really an endpoint to continuous integration. Organisations need to incorporate incremental adaptation on what’s different today, from yesterday. They explore the risks of buzzword adoption in today’s world, where organisations are struggling to understand the value of what they’ve adopted. They delve into the anti-fragility of business practices that gain in strength due to stress and apply this logic to the financial markets. High-quality DevOps hinges upon sharing your learning, and that’s a primary value for us at MThree. Let’s double down on what works, and stop doing what doesn’t. On that note, please enjoy this podcast and share far and wide!
