One of our listeners, Andrew Welker, suggested that we talk about Klustered, so a few hours before David Flanagan was about to do his workshop at Container Days, we recorded this episode.

We then talked about Rawkode Academy, and we finished with conferences. Good thing we did, because David almost forgot about KubeHuddle, the conference that he is co-organising next week.

This week we're talking about product development structures as systems with Lucas da Costa. The last time we had Lucas on the show he was living the text-mode only life, and now we're more than 3 years later, Lucas has doubled down on all things text mode. Today's conversation with Lucas maps several ideas he's shared recently on his blog. We talk about deadlines being pointless, trajectory vs roadmap and the downfall of long-term planning, the practices of daily stand-ups and what to do instead, measuring queues not cycle time, and probably the most controversial of them all — actually talking to your customers. Have you heard? It's this newly disruptive Agile framework that seems to be working well.

This week on The Changelog we're talking about Stable Diffusion, DALL-E, and the impact of AI generated art.

We talk from all the angles of this topic, the technical, the innovation, the future and possibilities, the ethical and the moral – we get into it all.
