Making the Right Thing Easy with Jon Ravenscraft and Nick Kuhn of Kroger

June 11, 2019 Dormain Drewitz

 

At CF Summit 2019 in Philadelphia, I sat down with Jon Ravenscraft (@Jon_Ravenscraft) and Nick Kuhn (@tehkuhnz ) from Kroger to see what was interesting to them from the event and what was on their list to play around with once they got back home. What ensued was a survey of the many ways that Cloud Foundry is evolving. From Eirini, to Buildpacks, to ISM, to Knative.. they all come back to making developers productive.

"As soon as you make the right thing the easy thing, it takes off like a rocketship," noted Jon. His observations are a testimony to why a developer-centric application platform matters.
