Download it: MP3 | AAC | OGG | OPUS

This time I'm talking to an absolute legend: Mitchell Hashimoto, the CTO of HashiCorp the company behind a series of brilliant open source products (Terraform, Vault, Nomad, Vagrant) that are highly successfully both business wise and community wise. I would even argue that HashiCorp is the only company that manages to do that.

We talk about:

  • The path from 7 to 1000+ employees in the last 10 years 📈📈📈
  • How Mitch is still able to be a very active github user and contribute a lot of code while growing a big enterprise company to IPO
  • How to build successful open source projects
  • Where to draw the line in open core businesses
  • How to be able to prevent cloud providers from sucking your blood 🧛
