In this episode, Michael Neil joins us to talk about Stelligent’s newest open source project and how you can use it to automate your container deployments. This tool was built to help people who are new to AWS to make their deployments easier.

Scott Alexander and Shaug Evans host this episode and talk about the changes that the podcast has undergone.  After the interview, they discuss open source here at Stelligent. Our large projects are a part of it, but we also have many small utilities that were written in support of blog posts to refine their concepts.

Podcast Details:

What Is happening with the podcast – The podcast has new hosts and an improved format to make it more useful to our listeners. The interview is now at the beginning of the podcast, with the news and discussion in the 2nd half.

Michael Neil interview – Stelligent’s newest open source project Mutato (pronounced muh-tah-toe) joins the podcast to talk about the project. It is an open source framework for building containerized microservices in the AWS ecosystem.  The project handles many of the details for new AWS users to get containers deployed to ECS and EKS quickly.

Open Source at Mphasis Stelligent – In addition to our projects, we also publish source code that supports our blog posts. One recent blog post is Eric Kascic’s “Thought Experiment: Proposed Complexity Metric for IAM Policy Documents”. In addition to the blog post, he wrote code that implements his idea, and the repository is public for anyone to see.

Recent Blog Post – Several other recent blog posts are discussed including the recent series of articles about working remotely. Scott Nixon’s “Building Developer Sandboxes on AWS with Attribute-based access control (ABAC)” is also discussed for teams that may have to share an AWS account and for the opening look into identification documents and their history.

Closing Contact Information – On Twitter, you can find O’Shaughnessy (Shaug) Evans @ohshaughnessy and Scott Alexander @salexpdx. For more information about Mphasis Stelligent, visit
