067: Microsoft Blowing It, Kubernetes security, NATS, skaffold, and More!

I was in Sunnyvale and San Francisco most of the week and just got home. Thank you to the folks at Google Cloud for putting on an amazing event. I learned a lot during my visit. I’m exhausted though.

One big piece of news from the CNCF this week was Kubernetes graduating. “To move from incubation to graduate, projects must demonstrate thriving adoption, a documented, structured governance process, and a strong commitment to community success and inclusivity.” One questioned I was asked by a few people was what does graduating from CNCF actually mean?

One of those questions was, “When was the last time you changed your mind?” This question struck me. When was the last time I changed my mind? What motivated me to make that change?
