I'm a technology evangelist at Red Hat where I deal with topics such as containers, DevOps, cloud strategy, and IoT. Those will be the primary focus of this newsletter but I'll also use it to highlight generally interesting links and to provide updates on my comings and goings. Blog: http://bitmason.blogspot.com

I’m down in New York City this week talking The New Platform at CloudExpo. This presentation discusses the rapid ongoing shift from a platform that was fundamentally based on individual servers (whether virtualized or not) to containerized datacenters running decomposed services. This change has happened over a relatively short time and, while there remain wildcards and areas still in flux, we seem to be at least somewhat stabilizing around some core concepts. 
Perhaps that’s wishful thinking on my part and the technology stack and ecosystem will appear as alien as today’s stack would have seemed three or four years ago. But the target has seemingly emerged with enough definition that I’m going to take a crack at putting it down in a book over the next few months.

Upcoming
This week marks the beginning of a long spell of travel. Some of it’s vacation to be sure but nonetheless the next couple of months will be packed between Red Hat Summit in San Francisco. Here’s the link to the agenda.  Use discount code INcrowd16 to save on registration.
After Summit, I’ll be headed to Japan to speak at LinuxCon. I’ll be on stage with my colleague William Henry talking about “Fail Fast, Fail Often.” Afterwards, I’ll be taking some a week off in Japan.
The rest of the summer is still up in the air. A couple of DevOpsDays are in the mix and VMworld at the end of August is always a possibility–though September gets busy again so I may pass this year.
