Refactored #032: “Is Your Basement a Cloud?"

On this episode of Refactored…

  • The guys kvetch about people inadvertently making our highways worse when they think they are helping. Is this low-brow watercooler small talk, or a veiled exploration on the broader topic of unintended consequences represented through allegory using motorists with a hero complex as the contrived plot device? You decide! But also, educate yourself on the Zipper merge.
  • What does “multi-cloud” mean to you? SalesForce may disagree with your definition.
  • Frank hates the word “cloud” and debates its essential utility. Chris has a less visceral reaction.
  • Chris learns a new term: “citizen developer” (relative to things like Excel and Low-Code solutions).
  • The guys manage to avoid Philosophy Hour after agreeing: If you can’t teach it, you don’t really know it.
  • The pick of the week is Digital Ocean even though the guys didn’t play the jingle.
  • … and much more!
