The Marine Software Developers
The Few, The Proud, The Marine software developers. The Marine Corps is a small service and that scale has often made them more scrappy and agile compared to the larger services. While the Army and Air Force have launched software teams with fanfare and funding, the Marine Corps experience has been more like a bootstrapped startup. Panelists Maj Drew Hutcheon, Collin Chew, Maj Sean Kaiser, SSgt Sherlund, and Maj Victor Castro reflect on the last year and their recent innovation challenge.
Tactical Edge Computing
Although the DoD is getting smarter in cloud-native software development and architectures, digital applications have been supporting missions for years. The challenge today is how to enable warfighters at the tactical edge to leverage digital tools while remaining connected to apps that were architected to run either in the hyperscale cloud, or on VMs. Edge computing is the primary solution and it introduces a variety of benefits and new dependencies that developers, users, and leaders must understand in order to succeed. Panelists Chris Saunders, Sr Manager at VMware Tanzu Public Sector Systems Engineering; Laura Brent, Senior Fellow in the Technology and National Security Program at CNAS; and Jim Perkins, product manager at Microsoft Azure and Major in the U.S. Army Reserve’s 75th Innovation Command, take a dive deep into tactical edge computing.
