Topic 1 - Welcome back to the show. Almost a year ago, you launched TriggerMesh with Mark Hinkle. How is the business doing?
Topic 2 - A couple of years ago, you helped create a technology called Kubeless, to do Serverless/FaaS on Kubernetes. And then Knative came along. For people that aren’t familiar with Knative, can you give us a Tl;DR on what it is and how it has evolved as a standard for Kubernetes?
Topic 3 - Let’s talk about the different elements of Knative and how each one of them is evolving - Build, Serving and Eventing.
- Building is now "Project Tekton"
Topic 4 - Can we talk about the differences between “Serverless” and “Functions-as-a-Service”, especially in the context of different frameworks, and event sources?
Topic 5 - Triggermesh has been very early in delivering Serverless or Functions-as-a-Service via Knative. What are some of the lessons you’ve learned (use-cases, customer preferences, area of education) over the last year?
Topic 6 - Do you have any insight into some of the things that might be coming next in Knative?
