Given the CNCF’s role of promulgating a general understanding of what cloud native is, specifically how the projects governed by the CNCF provide platforms and tooling for cloud native applications, I think the “try” approach to providing easy-to-use, publically-available sandboxes is a true facilitator, couching edification of cloud native in context of the CNCF projects.
The “try” sandboxes could:
- have walk-thru tutorials that parlay and reference the “model applications” Bryan Cantrill referred to.
- utilize part of the (idle?) 1000-node cluster for the CNCF community
- be leveraged as a platform for training courses and developer certification
- be a source of measuring interest, adoption, demographics
I’m sure of the order of operations / speaking rules on the conference call. Apologies if I chimed-in out of turn today.
