The Circle of Software (Ep. 27)

July 28, 2016 Coté


When you put all of the steps needed to create good software up on the board, there’s a lot of them. It’s a lot more than just writing code, or even writing requirements and stories. Around Pivotal, we think of this full, end-to-end process as the circle of code: Ideas → prioritization / planning → coding → deployment → runtime → monitoring → feedback, and back again. Richard and Coté discuss these steps and how organizations are starting to appreciate “the big picture.”

They also cover some cloud native news: Amazon buying a browser-based IDE, Cloud9; Google expanding their cloud; and Verizon’s purchase of Yahoo!
