Topic 3 - Tell us about “Tectonic” - Commercial Kubernetes Platform

Topic 4 - What’s the latest on Application Container Specification (“appc”) - Do you think we’ll just see multiple container specs going forward (as we’ve seen with lots of technologies in the past), or is it possible that some will converge (or go away)?

Topic 5 - You’re a systems person. Help us connect the dots in the CoreOS stack - from OS to Container Spec (rkt) to Discovery (etcs) to Networking (flannel) to Schedulers (kubernetes)
