031: Stories, points, and backlogs with Pivotal Tracker, guest Ronan Dunlop

Continuing our Circle of Code agenda, we talk with Ronan Dunlop of Pivotal Tracker. Tracker was developed over ten years ago as the in-house project management software used by Pivotal Labs and has since then become a product in its own right used by many teams. We discuss what Tracker's history, what it does, and most importantly the philosophy behind tracker.

We also discuss some recent news about the Gartner IaaS Magic Quadrant (see free reprint and Coté's highlights), SQL Server support in the Google Cloud, and the wrap of SpringOne Platform, including just released videos of many of the talks.

030: Platforms as Contracts with John Feminella

While at SpringOne Platform I talked with John Feminella about his talk on platforms and contracts. He uses the legal metaphor of contracts to describe the beneficial trade-offs between things like 12 factor coding and continuous delivery. As the abstract for his talks puts it:

Platforms like Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) can be viewed as contracts between applications and the people who build, operate, and deploy them. At the root of these contracts is a core premise: if your application checks off a few boxes, the platform can provide enormous amounts of power and enable capabilities that wouldn't otherwise be possible.

Check back from the video recording of the talk and find John in Twitter at @jxxf.

029: Monitoring microservices and applications with Spring Sleuth, an interview with Marcin Grzejszczak

While at SpringOne Platform 2016 I, Coté talks with Marcin about one of the projects he works on, Spring Sleuth. There's plenty of technical overviews of Sleuth out there, but I wanted to talk with Marcin about the "why" of Sleuth, how he came to use, and get a high-level overview of how it works. Sleuth, based on Zipkin, is a framework for distributed tracing which turns out to be handy for the types of architectures we see in cloud native applications, particularly microservices. Monitoring a single user interaction across a mutli-service, composed application has historically been difficult: you can lose track of what code and service is participating and doing what, ending up in a lot of log salad and correlation hacks after the fact to diagnose problems and monitor for overall performance.

Check out Marcin's blog at http://toomuchcoding.com/ and find him in Twitter at @MGrzejszczak.

028: Partnering in the cloud native ecosystem, guest Josh McKenty

This week, while at SpringOne Platform, Richard and I talk with Josh McKenty, head of the partnering engineering team. With a general purpose application stack like Pivotal Cloud Foundry there's a lot of partner applications, services, and consulting that typically gets used beyond what Pivotal provides out of the box. Josh's team does the implementation with partners around these extensions and service integrator partnerships. We discuss how the program works, why it's needed, different modes of operating with partners (from agile to Gnatt-planned out waterfall style), why an ecosystem is needed, and how service integrators fit in. Since Josh has worked on OpenControl we slip in an overview and update of that compliance automation framework. Josh in Twitter: @jmckenty.

027: The Circle of Software

When you put all of the step needed to create good software up on the board, there's a lot of them. It's a lot more than just writing code, or even writing requirements and stories. Around Pivotal, we think of this full, end-to-end process as the circle of code: Ideas → prioritization / planning → coding → deployment → runtime → monitoring → feedback, and back again. Richard and Coté discuss these steps and how organizations are starting to appreciate "the big picture."

They also cover some cloud native news: Amazon buying a browser-based IDE, Cloud9; Google expanding their cloud; and Verizon's purchase of Yahoo!

News

Main Topic

  • "Circle of Software," Onsi’s talk where he outlines this concept:
  • Ideas → prioritization / planning → coding → deployment → runtime → monitoring → feedback, and back again
  • What do Coté and Richard think of this model?
  • Lots of individually popular tools at each stage of the circle …
    • Prioritization: Jira, Pivotal Tracker, Trello, and more
    • Coding → Java/Spring, Node, .NET, Ruby, and more. Plus countless IDEs from IntelliJ to Visual Studio Code to Spring Tool Suite. Not to mention web IDEs.
    • Deployment → Jenkins, Concourse, GoCD, TravisCI, and more.
    • Platform → Pivotal Cloud Foundry, cloud IaaS, containery stuff
    • Monitoring → Datadog, New Relic, Dynatrace, and more. Log storage in Splunk and others.
    • Feedback → Tools like UserVoice
  • Where does friction arise in the handoffs between those stages?
  • Damon Edwards value-stream talk from DevOpsDays Austin 2015.
  • Is anyone currently trying to bridge the gaps? Between which stages?
  • The marriage of tools and culture in making this work
    • If you aren’t committed to continuously delivery and using feedback to fuel the next iteration, don’t waste your time setting up this machinery
  • Also: SpringOne Platform! Aug 1st to 4th. Use the code pivotal-cote-300 for $300 off registration.

026: SpringOne Platform Preview, Pokémon Go, will Azure win against AWS?

The biggest, best cloud native conference around is just around the corner, SpringOne Platform, this August 1st to 4th. This week we talk about the sessions we're looking forward to: Richard has his top five and Coté has a longer write-up. As both a technical and "meatware" conference, there's a whole lot to like, spanning the broad category of better ways of doing software. There are some great case study talks from the likes of Home Depot, ExpressScripts, Allstate, and Dish. In the technical buckey, there's all sorts of talks going over cloud native style development and several on handling data as well. Of course there's a lot on microservices! If you haven't registered yet, use the code pivotal-cote-300 to get $300!.

In addition to talking about SpringOne Platform, we cover some recent cloud native news like the prediction that Azure will overtake AWS and, of course, Pokémon Go.

025: .NET and Beyond 12 Factors with Kevin Hoffman

We've seen a goodly spate of news in the container space recently which we cover in the episode. In the second half, we talk with Kevin Hoffman about the .NET world, Steel Toe, and his book, Beyond the Twelve-Factor App. A recent survey from the Cloud Foundry Foundation is widening the framing around container management, adding in the use of Platform-as-a-Service into the usual container orchestration mix. The survey also shows some interesting results around adoption, e.g., managing containers in production ends up being more difficult than people predict during evaluations. Also since our last episode, DockerCon brought a bevy of announcements in the container ecosystem which we cover briefly. And highly relevant to our guest, Kevin Hoffman, .NET Core 1.0 was officially released, as open source. In the second half we talk about the recent history of .NET and how it's being used to create microservices. We also talk about the three extra "factors" Kevin's book adds to the 12 factor app and typical experiences when migrating to 12 factor apps.

021: Cloud Native Transformation at the CF Summit, compiling code is now legal again, and other cloud news

Last week’s Cloud Foundry Summit was full of large organizations talking about revamping their IT strategy to be cloud native. We heard from the likes of Comcast, Allstate, Daimler, and ExpressScripts who each have been using Pivotal Cloud Foundry as the central enabler of their cloud strategies. These companies are modernizing how they create and deliver software, well on the journey to becoming software defined businesses. As Greg Otto from Comcast said, “We placed a bet on Cloud Foundry. We get features in days, not weeks, and scale takes minutes, not months.”

In this new format for Pivotal Conversations, Richard Seroter and Coté talk about these stories and other happenings from the Cloud Foundry Summit. We also cover some recent news like the Serverless Summit and the the ruling in Google/Oracle case over APIs.

We're always espousing how much cultural change is needed to realize all the benefits of "cloud native," so I thought it'd be interesting to talk about how HR helps out with that change by talking with Pivotal's head of HR, Joe Militello.

One of the key principles of his approach is to remove complexity: from process to paperwork. Later in the episode, we talk about the leaning up of the annual performance review as an example of removing that complexity: at Pivotal, it's a totally optional process, which boggles some HR folks' minds. However, in looking at all of the effort that goes into annual reviews - employees establishing goals, managers reviewing them, and all the proces around it - Joe's team found that it was an alarming huge amount of work for something that very few people - if any! - liked. Instead, they've been instilling the idea of continuous feedback into the company's process. And, for those who still want them, there's tools and process available for full on annual reviews.

We talk about simplifying the recruiting process too. In an example that sounds a lot like the old "how long does it take you to deploy a line of code" trick, Joe goes over Pivotal's goal of putting an offer out 24 hours after an interview (assuming the candidate warrants one). The back-end for most HR systems and the approval process wouldn't allow for such a quick offer letter, but after applying that de-complexifying lense, it's possible to get there. Just like focusing on all the effort, end-to-end, it takes to deploy one line of code to fine "waste," this 24 hour goal helps lean up the HR process.

Another topic we discuss is the ongoing experiment of including work simulations in the interview process. Having a programmer do a small coding and design task is nothing new, but applying that to sales, marketing, and other roles is interesting and novel. Joe goes over how they've been doing "stand and deliver" components for sales interviews, and discusses how they're rolling such simulations into interviews for all roles.

Community, conferences, unconferences, and Platform SpringOne

Even the cloud natives get sick from time to time, which is how Andrew and I start this Pivotal Conversations episode out, talking about how we deal with decreasing status bars while we're sick. We spend the bulk of our time discussing what you can expect to get out of conferences and unconferences.

 

Coming this fall, August 1st to 4th, we have a new conference, Platform SpringOne coming up that launches this discussing. We talk about what we're planning for this conference: a good mix of all the roles, technical and business facing that make up cloud native culture. In bringing these roles together, one of the things we're looking to do is help people cross the "silos" they normally operate in and try to get to that "integrated team" effect that cloud native approaches espouse so much. I comment that this seems like a continuation of Andrew's talk from AgileRoots 2009 where he pitches agile-minded developers to start paying attention to operations more.

 

Also, having recently run an unconference at an internal, Pivotal conference, we discuss how unconferences function. That discussion provides a good example of how building trust and rapport with your co-workers can make things are mundane as "meetings" more productive and useful. I liked the mechanics of the unconference, in particular that Andrew went over the "rules" of OpenSpaces style conferences, which encourage people to find conversations they like and feel free to move get up and find another talk if they're looking for different topics.

Data, Why Did It Have To Be Data?

In this episode, Coté once again chats with Andrew Clay Shafer about the sundry challenges of transforming to a cloud native enterprise. We start talking about the changing focus we're seeing among Pivotal customers: moving up the stack from infrastructure to the application layers. Then we discuss the difficulties of handling the data layer, and wrap-up with some change management tactics for getting the "rank and file" inspired and bought into the cloud native lifestyle.

Moving Up the Stack, Talking Pivotal Cloud Foundry 1.6 with James Watters

With a new version of Pivotal Cloud Foundry out, I wanted to catch up with James Watters to discuss what our customers are up to. We discuss the focus on application architecture and development that we've been seeing out in the field. Last we talked, much of the focus was on the infrastructure layer, and while this release has plenty of that, Spring Boot and Spring Cloud are some of the more interesting features in this release. So, we discuss the more developer centric context that Pivotal Cloud Foundry is running around in now.

Operations Has Plenty To Do In A Cloud Native Enterprise, talking with Bridget Kromhout

From sleepy storage admin jobs to MongoDB, there’s no end of jobs operations people can be doing now-a-days. Fresh of many years being an operations person, Bridget Kromhout (@bridgetkromhout), now at Pivotal, talks with me in this episode about DevOps and operations. We discuss the opportunities operations people have in a Cloud Native world, moving to and from management, organization change management, being “promoted” to management, and, of course, USENET.

Talking DevOps ROI with the Finance Department

A short while ago, [I wrote up how to approach doing ROI cases for DevOps](http://blog.pivotal.io/pivotal-cloud-foundry/features/3-ways-to-talk-your-w…). The catch, of course, was that doing ROI for DevOps is often the wrong "question." That said, we all live in the real world, so you need to tell the finance people, let alone your management chain, something if they're asking you to justify a decision.

 

To follow-up on the piece, I called up my old friend Ed Goodwin, a programmer friend of mine who went and got an MBA and entered a whole new career in finance. I asked him to walk me through how you'd think about doing the ROI for something like DevOps and, more broadly, how to work with finance people who are curious about new IT processes like DevOps and cloud native. He gives some excellent, pragmatic advice. As always, it always helps to just talk with people, even if they're from finance.

  • As covered in their Cloud Foundry Summit keynote, AllState seeing the need to change with IT

  • How an enterprise like AllState is different than Silicon Valley culture.

  • How fear of Silicon Valley “marauders” drives the need to change - interestingly, high up the management people are more paranoid, but lower down, people are not so paranoid. They discuss what kind of disconnect this creates in the organization.

  • The discussion then moves to solving for this disconnect in the organization. Among other things, Matt suggests that leadership needs to create and communicate a vision and strategy.

  • Also discussion of how open source is helping AllState focus on the right things instead of building platforms.

You are going to need a platform, operational concerns of the third platform

In this episode, Andrew and Coté talk about one of his works in progress, a short essay on the operational needs of a cloud platform.

The list so far is:

  1. role based access to resources- the right people should be able to do things and the wrong people shouldn’t

  2. run specified bits on demand - take code, put it together with all the rest of the things it needs and get it running

  3. coordinate cross service configurations - in a service oriented world, services need to be configured to connect with each other

  4. route public requests to running bits the next big thing needs access to the Internet

  5. read and write persistent data - data has to live somewhere

  6. add and remove resources - scaling is a great problem to have, but still

  7. record internal and external events - keep track of what changed, when and by who

  8. isolate resources and failures - without isolation and decoupling, that is one big distributed single point of failure

  9. measure performance/health - can’t manage what you don’t measure

  10. detect and determine failure - sometimes, things get real… but how do you know

  11. recover failures someone is going to have to clean this mess

  12. work tomorrow - when everything you’ve thought to be true has been shown not to be
