Josh Long is well known in the Spring community for his insightful and humorous conference presentations, not to mention his work with hundreds of enterprises, helping them learn the skills needed to develop software better and faster. In this episode of Pivotal Insights, Josh joins Jeff and Dormain to discuss the trends in software development in the enterprise (such as the emergence of reactive programming), preview Spring 2.0, share some insights from his latest book, and explain why precisely he decided to put a Blue-eared Kingfisher on the cover.

The application development landscape is evolving rapidly. One of the latest and most exciting developments is Project Riff. Unveiled late in 2017 at SpringOne Platform, Project Riff is an open source function service designed to run on Kubernetes. Pivotal's Dan Baskette, who helped develop Riff, joins the show to talk about the excitement around functions-as-a-service and serverless computing, the benefits Riff offers developers working with functions, and where the project fits into the broader cloud and platform ecosystem.

In their two-part blog post, Pivotal's Brian McClain and Bryan Friedman compare BOSH - an open source tool for release engineering, deployment, lifecycle management, and monitoring of distributed systems - to Chef and Ansible. Turns out, BOSH is the clear winner when it comes to managing Day 2 operations. In this episode of Pivotal Insights, Brian and Bryan join Jeff and Dormain to dig into their findings, share what surprised them most, and argue that BOSH isn't just for Cloud Foundry.

Pivotal's Jared Ruckle joins Jeff and Dormain to kick-off 2018 with a first look at PCF 2.0 and what it means for both developers and operators.

When Xavier Perret took over as chief digital officer for Orange France’s business-to-business division, it was anything but business as usual. Perret was intent on modernizing the division's software development capabilities with a focus on continuous customer feedback and rapid release cycles. It wouldn't be easy, but Perret knew it was necessary to go cloud-native to compete and win in the highly contested European telecom market. In this episode of Pivotal Insights, Perret joins Jeff and Dormain to share the story of Orange France's ongoing digital transformation.

SpringOne Platform, the annual customer and developer event put on by Pivotal, took place last week in San Francisco.

So if you couldn't make it to the show last week, here's your chance to get caught up on all the action.

Pivotal Cloud Foundry provides some rather obvious benefits, such as reducing administrative burdens on developers and automating many Day 2 operations. But there is more value in the platform if only you know where to look. That's where value stream mapping comes in. In this episode of Pivotal Insights, Mark Ruesink joins Jeff and Dormain to explore the Pivotal approach to value stream mapping and how Mark and his team help customers maximize the value of their investment in Pivotal Cloud Foundry.

Matt Stine has some advice for software developers. Stop a moment and try to connect the dots between the code you are writing and the business problem that code is intended to solve. If you can't, there's a good chance you're developing software just for the sake of developing software. And that doesn't help anybody. On this episode of Pivotal Insights, Matt, who serves as Pivotal's Global CTO - Architecture, talks about getting back to fundamental software development principles, improving communication within development teams, and delivering business value with software.
