Hi Matt,

Say more re serverless model: as in horizontal scaling and/or 12x Factor,
or is this some of the newer container architectures in which you speak?

Also agreed re knowing more about with which open source cloud frameworks
developers are going to have a play, e.g. what is the new open cloud lamp
stack?  Something I can easily just start loading into my command line and
having a play with as a cloud application developer...

sudo apt-get install ORKA
... do you want to install API resources cli toolkits for:

^^soz, for dramatic LAMP metaphor purposes only ;)

All great discussions btw, thanks for driving this conversation forward
Piet 🙆

Best, Flanders
