"We love open source - we love everything about it."

SUMO Heavy is a digital commerce strategy firm co-founded by Bob Brodie (@bob_brodie), who is also the company's CTO. Brodie joined the New Builders Podcast to showcase how he built SUMO Heavy on the open source Magento ecommerce platform and why he's so fond of open source in general.

During the conversation, Brodie explains what gave his team the confidence to launch SUMO Heavy when Magento was still in beta (6:37); how SUMO Heavy leverages a range of other open source libraries (11:12); his belief that "information not collected is information lost" (13:32); his take on the debate between native apps and web apps (26:16); and why he's come around on containers (30:32).
