    Topic 1 - Let’s talk about CloudNativeCon + KubeCon
    • About 1200-1500 attendees
    • Lots of Kubernetes projects (60+)
    • Microsoft bought Deis
    • IBM now supports Kubernetes
    • New focus on making the UI/UX better
    Topic 2 - Let’s talk about your visit to Seattle to learn more about Azure Functions Azure Functions 
    • Languages they use 
    • Event Driven and Trigger Based Code 
    • Terminology is very developer friendly, specifically Enterprise Developer friendly 
    • Use cases were very real world, customer references were presented well 
    • I could see the use case and the problem it solves (compared to others it seems abstract at times) 
    • Bindings were a differentiator 
    • I was surprised by the number of external bindings. Of course there were all the MSFT internal ones, but you had JIRA, github, Trello, Asana, etc. It was impressive to see the binding ecosystem App Insights - ability to debug/trace/monitor 
    • Logic Apps is like a visual pipeline to build step functions into a workflow 
    • Came in not knowing really anything and came away with a very clear picture of how they plan to be successful and I give them good odds for sure. Hell, they're Microsoft...
    Topic 3 - Let’s talk about what got announced at DockerCon 2017 
    • Docker to Moby (what does that mean??)
    • LinuxKit - DIY Linux, UniKernel, Windows
    • Enterprise Apps, Oracle, Microsoft
    Topic 4 - Let’s talk about what we expect to see/hear at ServerlessConf Austin 
    • Differences between various implementations

    • Users vs. Vendors vs. Consultants
    • Are they all cloud-specific or will we see a cloud-agnostic serverless emerge
    • Understand the Serverless Framework 
    • Better understand use-cases and application patterns
