Ian Crosby (@IanDCrosby, Managing Director @ContainerSoluti) talks about how Cloud-native applications are as much about new technology patterns as they are about new organization patterns, collaboration patterns and risk-management patterns.

Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Tell us a little bit about your background, as you’ve been around software development and this move to cloud-native for a little while now. 

Topic 2 - Lets begin by talking about patterns. What are some common application patterns, and how do they begin to change when we’re talking about cloud-native patterns?

Topic 3 - What are some of the more commonly used cloud-native patterns? Are they more focused on the underlying technology (e.g. containers, Kubernetes, etc.) or more focused on the actual application (e.g. 12-factor, etc)?

Topic 4 - Have you found that some patterns are easier for groups (or companies) to adopt than others? 

Topic 4a - “Why are patterns useful in Cloud Native?” or “How do you get started using patterns?” are two topics/questions which may be interesting.

Topic 5 - Have you found that some patterns are easier or more difficult to maintain over time?

Topic 6 - What are some common tips that you share with communities or your clients to help them find early success to build confidence?
