Many organizations are racing to adopt cloud native to unlock all of the benefits that microservices, containers, and orchestration tools such as Kubernetes promise to deliver. However, if the focus is only on the set of technologies that surround cloud native, there is a strong possibility that many of the benefits will not be realized. Kevin Stewart explores the people, processes, and cultural aspects that complement the cloud-native computing technology stack.

Kevin Stewart is vice president of engineering at Heptio, an emerging leader in the cloud-native computing space, started by two of the founders of Google Compute Engine and the Kubernetes open source project. Previously, Kevin held a similar role at NodeSource, where he helped create NodeSource N|Solid, an enterprise-grade Node.js runtime; was one of the original engineering leaders for Creative Cloud at Adobe, where his team built the very first service offering, Creative Cloud Assets; and helped shape the engineering culture at a number of software companies and digital agencies by improving development and delivery practices and encouraged cross-functional teams. Although he currently resides in Seattle, Kevin is a lifelong New Yorker with dreams of relocating to a sunny island in the Caribbean. When he’s not helping teams build great products, Kevin can be found spending time with his family or at the gym trying to stay (get) in shape.
