On The Cloud Pod this week, the team discusses the future of the podcast and how they’ll know they’ve made it when listeners use Twitter to bombard Ryan with hatred when he’s wrong. 

A big thanks to this week’s sponsors:

  • Foghorn Consulting, which provides full-stack cloud solutions with a focus on strategy, planning and execution for enterprises seeking to take advantage of the transformative capabilities of AWS, Google Cloud and Azure.

This week’s highlights

Amazon Web Services: Happy Birthday, Justin

Google Cloud Platform: So Pretty

 Azure: Best Friends

Oracle: Win Dinner With Larry

  • 🌴 Oracle offers free cloud migration to lure new customers. Oracle CEO Larry Ellison will fly you to his private island — but if you don’t sign up, you have to make your own way back.
