React Native at Airbnb with Gabriel Peal Holiday Repeat
Play • 54 min

Originally published July 27, 2018

React Native allows developers to reuse frontend code between mobile platforms. A user interface component written in React Native can be used in both iOS and Android codebases. Since React Native allows for code reuse, this can save time for developers, in contrast to a model where completely separate teams have to create frontend logic for iOS and Android.

React Native was created at Facebook. Facebook itself uses React Native for mobile development, and contributes heavily to the open source React Native repository.

In 2016, Airbnb started using React Native in a significant portion of their mobile codebase. Over the next two years, Airbnb saw the advantages and the disadvantages of adopting the cross platform, JavaScript based system. After those two years, the engineering management at Airbnb came to the conclusion to stop using React Native. Gabriel Peal is an engineer at Airbnb who was part of the decision to move off of React Native. Gabriel wrote a blog post giving the backstory for React Native at Airbnb, and he joins the show to give more detail on the decision.

A Cloud-First Look Ahead for 2021
Jeremy Burton (@jburton, CEO @Observe_Inc; board member @SnowflakeDB ) talks about the differences between traditional IT companies and Cloud-First companies, from product planning and roadmaps, to customer engagements and marketing messaging.  *SHOW: *484 *SHOW SPONSOR LINKS:* * Okta - You should not be building your own Auth * Learn how Okta helped Cengage improve student success rates during COVID. * BMC Wants to Know if your business is on its A-Game * BMC Autonomous Digital Enterprise * Datadog Security Monitoring Homepage - Modern Monitoring and Analytics * Try Datadog yourself by starting a free, 14-day trial today.

We’ve known each other for a while. You’ve had tremendous success in Leadership, Product and Marketing roles in the past. Tell our audience a little bit of your background and what ultimately brought you to your role at CEO of Observe.  *Topic 1a* - For people that aren’t familiar, what does Observe bring to the market?  *Topic 2 *- We wanted to do a little “before-and-after”, and focus on what it means to be a “Cloud-First” company. What are the most obvious differences between a company like Observe and a company like Dell or EMC? *   * *Topic 3 *- From a product perspective, how do you think about roadmaps and the ways in which you enable new features for customers? Since Observe runs only in the public cloud, how much do you need to think about integrating with the native cloud services?  *Topic 4 *- You have deep expertise in creating marketing messaging, but so much of how customers learn about your products is no longer the company website. How do you think about reaching potential customers, or generally getting your message into the market? *Topic 5 *- Traditional IT was often aligned to centralized buying and architecture groups. How much does Cloud-First change the consumption models for companies - experimentation, on-demand usage, dealing with scaling issues, etc. *Topic 6 *- Overall, what are some of the biggest lessons you’ve learned about the Cloud-First approach as you’ve transitioned over the last 3+ years.  *FEEDBACK?* * Email: show at thecloudcast dot net * Twitter: @thecloudcastnet

Scaling Developer Productivity with Apache Kafka ft. Mohinish Shaikh
Confluent Cloud and Confluent Platform run efficiently largely because of the dedication of the Developer Productivity (DevProd) team, formerly known as the Tools team. Mohinish Shaikh (Software Engineer, Confluent) talks to Tim Berglund about how his team builds the software tooling and automation for the entire event streaming platform and ensures seamless delivery of several engineering processes across engineering and the rest of the org. With the right tools and the right data, developer productivity can understand the overall effectiveness of a development team and their ability to produce results. The DevProd team helps engineering teams at Confluent ship code from commit to end customers actively using Apache Kafka®. This team proficiently understands a wide scope of polyglot applications and also the complexities of using a diverse technology stack on a regular basis to help solve business-critical problems for the engineering org.  The team actively measures how each system interacts with one another and what programs are needed to properly run the code in various environments to help with the release of reliable artifacts for Confluent Cloud and Confluent Platform. An in-depth understanding of the entire framework and development workflow is essential for organizations to deliver software reliably, on time, and within their cost budget. The DevProd team provides that second line of defense and reliability before the code is released to end customers. As the need for compliance increases and the event streaming platform continues to evolve, the DevProd team is in place to make sure that all of the final touches are completed.  EPISODE LINKS * Leveraging Microservices and Apache Kafka to Scale Developer Productivity * Join the Confluent Community Slack * Learn more with Kafka tutorials, resources, and guides at Confluent Developer * Live demo: Kafka streaming in 10 minutes on Confluent Cloud * Use *60PDCAST* to get an additional $60 of free Confluent Cloud usage (details)
