Be sure to check out the additional episodes of the "Livin' on the Edge" podcast. Key takeaways from the podcast included: Automation and transparency are key to creating an effective continuous delivery pipeline. Siloing based on teams or technical verticals (e.g. networking, security) leads to inefficiencies via the introduction of uncertainty who is responsible, increased handoffs, and delays in verification.
The Livin' On The Edge Podcast Series
At Ambassador Labs, we're more than just a cloud-native application development company. We're a catalyst for change in how enterprises design, deploy, and manage microservices on Kubernetes.
About the Podcast Series
Join us to learn about best practices for releasing functionality via continuous delivery pipelines, and investigate the latest developer tooling, API gateway technology, and service mesh implementations.
In our "Livin' On The Edge" series, we interview practitioners and senior technical leaders from organizations such as HashiCorp, Lyft, GitHub, Ticket Master, Buoyant, and more.
Our Host: Dave Sudia
I'm a Director of Devrel at Ambassador Labs. My passion at work is helping others reach their potential, and I love helping developers produce the highest quality, most reliable code they can, and get it to users! My previous career was as a behavior specialist, and I apply that expertise to improving the behavior of applications.
I appreciate working on teams of curious people, where leadership roles are flexible, and members have the opportunity to step up and lead when they have the expertise, and step back and follow when they can learn something. Peer programming has been a powerful tool for me for writing better code. I don't like sitting in a closet coding all day.
I am experienced in several languages, and pick up new stacks quickly. My current passion is the cloud-native technology space centered around Kubernetes, especially in small and medium-sized organizations.

Key takeaways from the podcast included: Custom configured and bespoke production environments, which are often combined with the manual deployment of applications, can lead to many challenges “because you're just kind of shooting in the dark and crossing your fingers at every deployment.”

Key takeaways from the podcast included: Crossplane is an open source cloud control plane that enables engineers to provision infrastructure from the Kubernetes API. It can be used by organisations to build and operate an internal platform-as-a-service (PaaS) across a variety of infrastructures and cloud vendors. Crossplane has recently been accepted into the CNCF as a sandbox project.

Key takeaways from the podcast included: A well-integrated developer experience that allows engineers to code, test, and verify across a range of environments from local to production allows for business hypotheses to be tested rapidly and safely.
Dave Sudia, Senior DevOps Engineer at GoSpotCheck, joined Ambassador Labs to discuss creating an effective local developer experience for Kubernetes, migrating away from Heroku and building a Kubernetes-based platform as a service (PaaS), and how his team developed an understanding of all of the personas involved with creating a platform.

Key takeaways from the podcast included: There are many case studies that present the benefits of continuous integration and continuous delivery. However, even in 2020, not every organisation is fully committed to embracing this way of building and delivering software.
