There's a lot going on in the build, pipeline, CI/CD, supply chain space - so much so that there's all these phrases for the concept. Dagger.io is taking stab (hahahahah...) at builds and pipelines. 
In this episode, Alex Willians of The New Stack and Coté talk with Solomon Hykes to answer the question "what is Dagger?" We also discuss platform engineering, the concept of programable pipelines, and how Dagger wants you to think.
You can also see the video of the demo Solomon gave before this interview and the interview here.
This interview was recorded at VMware Explore 2022.

What is Platform as a Product? As Bryan Ross and Coté discuss, it's how operations people shift their mindset to be more customer-centric as they help developers out. It involves building a platform to automate as many tasks as possible to shift to self-service, but also changing expectations and interactions between development and operations. They also discuss issues with finance, the need for marketing, and realistic expectations of moving support from helpdesks to Slack (or whatever).

Istio! Service Mesh! Netflix OSS! The technologies and concepts for doing API-driven architectures have existed for longer than most of us have been alive, at least, able to program. In our kubernetes world, a "service mesh" is the all-in concept for managing and doing microservices at the application layer, but it also brings in all sorts of operational security capabilities that can be overlooked at first. In this episode, Ben and Coté talk with Oren Penso about the evolution of the service mesh idea, how it's evolved over recent years, and a little overview of the VMware Tanzu Service Mesh.

Security for developers has always been…complex. When you re-design for and move your application to the cloud, there’s a new set of security concerns to work with. Adib Saikali’s working on a book on this topic, and he discusses it with Coté in this episode. It all starts with the basics of security, and goes from there.
Check out the book and read along as Adib finishes it over at Manning (https://www.manning.com/books/securing-cloud-applications), and, find him in Twitter: @asaikali (https://twitter.com/asaikali).

Governments run on just as much software as the private sector, sometimes it can seem like even more! Government agencies feel the need to run their processes on software like any other organization and are starting to prioritize custom written software. Like everyone else, people in government feel the need to get better at software. In this episode, Jeremiah Sanders and Igor Steinberg talk with Coté about the motivations for getting better at software, common barriers, and a little bit of how people get over those barriers.
Some selected topics discussed:
Getting comfortable with “uncertainty” rather than certainty… accepting “failure,” the need to explore.
People are stymied by the interpretation of the rules, not the rules themselves.
Empowering people to be more cross functional.
What compromises do the people on that small team make? Risks.
