Kendall is a Senior Product Manager for Azure Container Apps based out of Austin, TX. When she’s not working, Kendall enjoys being outdoors, teaching spin classes, and hanging out with her cat, Koda.


Topics of Discussion:

[3:46] Kendall talks about starting in consulting and building her skill set in customer empathy and understanding the pain points that developers are experiencing.

[4:13] Even if it makes you uncomfortable, lean in as much as you can to opportunities for technical training.

[7:16] What interested Kendall in working on things that are more in running applications vs. doing frameworks for building applications?

[8:09] Even if you’re in operations at an organization, your overall objective is to help developers be more productive and focus on what’s making the company money and help them operate on what their core value proposition is for their customers.

[11:35] Kendall discusses Azure Container Apps and starts with App Service.

[21:02] Is Kendall working on Windows adapting containers?

[24:02] Do you have more control in container apps than you do in App Service, or does that limitation still stay the same?

[30:45] Kendall forecasts the future of container ops adoption and that we will see more and more cohesiveness in terms of the Azure portfolio.

[31:40] What does the pricing model look like?

[41:54] Kendall would recommend at least starting with the Azure Architecture Center.
