Dustin Kirkland (@dustinkirkland), Ubuntu Product and Strategy, Canonical Ltd. joins the New Builders podcast to talk about Canonical's mission to bring "Ubuntu everywhere," and how the pervasive OS can now be found on IoT devices, in the cloud and on IBM mainframes. The conversation covers the gamut of open source, cloud and data topics, including: the increasingly converged ecosystem of open source communities and Ubuntu's place in it (5:51); how Canonical is playing a leading role in container management (7:46); the Ubuntu Juju tool and how it simplifies microservices (16:02); how machine learning is becoming the new must-have technology (24:16); and how Big Software is democratizing technology access for developers (27:47).
