Google Cloud 2018
Rich in Texas
I’m a first-time listener. I just finished the 2017 Recap/2017 Prediction episode from 12/26/17. Towards the end, there was a quick discussion on Google Cloud and efforts they may/should make in 2018 if they’re going to appeal to the Enterprise.
I’m a Tech Recruiter, and I interviewed recently with the GC team. I’d love to share some detail around this topic, but I can tell you that GC was hiring a team of recruiters for Product-focused and Sales Engineer-focused hiring initiatives. By “initiatives,” I mean that they have goals in the hundreds, globally for selling GCP (Google Cloud Platform) with specific target markets, including heavy Asia-focus. These efforts were Q4 2017 - Q2 2018 and beyond. That’s a massive resourcing initiative, and it shows that they’re ready to pull up their “big boy pants,” and try to close the double-digit market share gap that they lag behind Azure, let alone AWS.

Good variety of topics and the hosts do a great job.
Excellent podcast covering the industry!
Great content for anyone in modern IT. Guests are experts and leaders in their disciplines and the content is always timely and engaging. Even for focusing on a single area, cloud, the podcast continues to provided fresh and engaging topics ranging from cutting edge start-up space to larger enterprises.
Good resource, but...
Helpful resource, but, like anything else, this could use improvement. Some suggestions:
--please level the audio. Sometimes the different speakers have hugely varying volume levels.
--please let the people being interviewed get more air time. Brian is good at this; Aaron perhaps less so.
--consider getting up front: what the product is, why is it being offered, what distinguishes it from others, what's the tech infrastructure/stack used and why. Usual bio summary from the person is helpful, too.
--consider asking at some point what emerging tech the person finds interesting, the next Docker...
--consider asking if the person had any interesting failures or directions that didn't pan out and why
--if a product is dependent on another product, normalized nagios data for instance, how does the product cope with changes in the upstream product?
--consider asking how the company deals with technical debt. Even startups have this issue.
--consider asking about the barriers to selling to enterprise and how they're dealing with it
--consider asking how much, if any, of the product is based on open source and if there's an effort to contribute any of then non proprietary IP to open source

Best Podcast on the net when it comes to cloud computing, Just by listening to their podcast I was able to make the right decisions for my clients. I hope this stays around for a long time.
Wide variety of excellent cloud topics
Aaron and Brian cover a wide range of topics, and really help break down the elements of cloud computing with their various guests. I listened to every episode in the backlog when educating myself on this space and it was the single most valuable resource about the state of the market. Since then I've been thrilled to be a guest, and continue to listen to every episode to hear what others in the industry think about the quickly-evolving state of the business.
