InfoQ Podcaster 2020 in Review: Challenges, Distributed Working Looking to the Future

In this podcast, InfoQ podcast hosts, Wes Reisz, Shane Hastie, Charles Humble and Daniel Bryant, sit down for the 2020 year in review edition of the podcast. Topics discussed included: the technology industry’s response to the change in working habits; the rise of online events; the future of cloud platforms; remote working and leadership; and the need to be kind to yourself and others.

Key Takeaways

  • The technology industry responded swiftly to many of the challenges in 2020 and the associated change in working habits. Tools and platforms such as Zoom, Google Workspaces, and Slack have scaled well to support this rapid trend towards distributed working.
  • Tech conferences and events have moved online. It was great to interact with many of our listeners at our first inaugural QConPlus event that ran in November. We thank everyone involved with making the event a success, including the program committee, track hosts, speakers, sponsors, and attendees.
  • Interesting trends for 2020 included the continued rise of cloud, hybrid, and multi-cloud platforms, largely driven by the increasing adoption of Kubernetes. The recent announcement of Docker support deprecation in Kubernetes is not as dramatic as social media may have reported.
