The 48th IT Press Tour had the opportunity to meet with Joe Duffy, founder, and CEO of the Pulumi cloud engineering platform. Their mission is to democratize the cloud as the modern cloud changes everything, and yet little has changed when it comes to working with the cloud. Joe and his co-founder, Eric Rudder, were both at Microsoft. Joe ran Microsoft’s Developer Tools and Platform strategy while Eric was an EVP and Chief Technical Strategy Officer.
Challenges of the Modern Cloud
Developers treat the cloud as an afterthought, while infrastructure teams struggle with solutions that do not scale. According to a recent CNCF survey, 50% of developers wait up to one month to get infrastructure access, and security continues to be an afterthought resulting in insecure code and applications.
