The Hero in Four Acts: We’ve Got This, WTF, Oh Shift, We Did It

Welcome to The New Stack Makers: Scaling New Heights, a series of interviews, conducted by Scalyr CEO Christine Heckart, with engineers who talk about the problems they have faced and the resolutions they sought. These are the stories about engineering management and how technology decisions are made for scaling architectures to support the demands of the business. Pooja Brown is vice president of engineering at Stitch Fix and also one of the founding members of ENG, a peer network of VPs and CTOs from leading SaaS companies. Brown spends most of the discussion talking about the work in developing a modern infrastructure prior to her work at StitchFix. Brown tells her story in four acts, discussing her work on monoliths and the move to a modern architecture that came with hiring. The developers were hired for their Node.js skills. And, they were quite different than the .Net devs they had once known so well.

Robinhood’s Kubernetes Journey: A Path More Treacherous Than it Appears

Welcome to The New Stack Makers: Scaling New Heights, a series of interviews conducted by our guest host Scalyr CEO Christine Heckart with engineering managers who talk about the problems they have faced and the resolutions they sought. The challenges engineering leaders face define how technology decisions are made for scaling architectures to support the demands of rapid-growth businesses. Heckart's first interview is with Adam Wolff, Robinhood’s former vice president of engineering who recalls two years ago when Kubernetes looked so right — and then the difficulties that followed when Wolff mandated the platform's adoption.

Data Center and Cloud Environments for Next-Generation Data Stacks

Next-generation data stacks and data centers will continue to meet the demands of software developer-led business models. But as new tools and platforms emerge to meet the deployment needs of today and tomorrow to run at scale, the data centers and cloud infrastructures will need to evolve as well. In this edition of The New Stack Makers podcast, Shrey Parekh, senior manager of product marketing, and Whitney Satin, director of product marketing, of Cisco’s AppDynamics discuss how data center and cloud environments are changing to accommodate next-generation applications and data stacks. Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack, hosted this episode.

Supplanting Scripting with Engineering Management and Machine Learning

Scripting behaviors and habits are hard to break as engineers are often accustomed to their own ways and processes. Meanwhile, the processes team leaders need to take when adopting new CI/CD processes and technologies, include engineering management from the bottom up and mapping people's skill sets and other processes. An example of a CI/CD process used to make the shift includes Harness’ platform that uses machine learning and other technologies to help DevOps engineer teams further their goals. In this edition of The New Stack Makers podcast, Tiffany Jachja, evangelist, Harness and Rajsi Rana, senior product manager, Oracle Cloud, discuss scripting, its background and how machine learning, CI/CD and other processes can help guide a shift in engineering culture to make the most of time and resources. Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack, hosted this episode.

DataOps: The Basics and Why It Matters

For this latest episode of The New Stack Makers podcast, Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack hosts guest speakers Dina Graves Portman, developer relations engineer for Google, Emilie Schario, internal strategy consultant, data, for GitLab, and Nicole Schultz, assistant director of engineering for Northwestern Mutual to discuss how DataOps is defined and why its application in the context of DevOps is particularly relevant in today’s highly complex and increasingly distributed environments. Like DevOps, Schario describes DataOps as workflow-related, but it extends much further to help resolve data-management challenges.

Kolton Andrus, CEO and co-founder, Gremlin on Chaos Engineering

For Kolton Andrus, CEO and co-founder, Gremlin, describing what chaos engineering is “is one of my favorite topics for debate,” and “is what makes chaos engineering sound fun and exciting." In this edition of The New Stack Makers podcast, Andrus, in addition to defining chaos engineering, describes how organizations can make it work for them. Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack, hosted this episode. The very idea of chaos — and an IT organization’s embrace of it — can conjure up fear in many. “[Chaos engineering] scares the pants off of some old school folks that aren’t comfortable with that kind of chaos in their environments. And so most people think chaos engineering is randomly breaking things and seeing what happens,” said Andrus. “I think that chaos engineering is thoughtful, planned experiments that teach us about our system and one of the key concepts that goes with that is this idea of the ‘blast radius.’ When we run this experiment, whom might...

2020 GitLab Commit - The Opportunity of Open Source to Create Opportunities for Others

In this episode of The New Stack Makers, we sit down with Christina Hupy, GitLab’s senior education program manager, and Nuritzi Sanchez, GitLab’s senior open source program manager, in the lead-up to GitLab Commit later this summer. We talk about the ups and downs of inclusion in the open source world, how you can best leverage the career opportunities of open source, and most importantly, how open source communities can open themselves up more to better foster those opportunities. We discuss this all not only within the context of traditional enterprise settings, but at universities and in prisons. Much of both Hupy and Sanchez’s time is spent with the broader community of GitLab users. And it’s part of their job to bring external feedback inside the company. So they may be more prepared than most to answer the essential question: What does a better open source community look like?
