Ep 149: Registry is getting an upgrade: Inside OCI artifacts

Last Friday, Dec 8, I released a podcast about OCI (open container initiative). It's an audio version of what I sent you in this newsletter a few months ago.

The OCI specifications for registry and image are getting a minor version number update to 1.1 soon, and this could be a big deal for anyone storing artifacts other than images somewhere in their infrastructure. This episode digs into the problem with artifacts today and how the OCI and CNCF plan to fix it with the "one registry to serve them all (artifacts)" in 2024.

🎥 I was interviewed by KodeKloud at KubeCon

I finally got to meet Mumshad Mannambeth and chat with the KodeKloud team, and we did a quick Q&A video on the benefits of modern CI, GitOps, and a little prediction on Cloud Native Wasm. Take a look:
