I recently attended the KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2017 conference in Austin, Texas, which gathers leading technologists from multiple open source cloud-native communities to further the education and advancement of cloud-native computing. This was my first time attending this conference, so it was quite enlightening for me. My goal was to get a pulse on the cloud-native technologies that the industry is focused on and where we stand today and where we are going tomorrow.

Continuing our Season In Review Series, ATPWorldTour.com revisits the biggest Grand Slam comebacks of 2017:
5. Andreas Seppi d. Nick Kyrgios 1-6, 6-7(1), 6-4, 6-2, 10-8 - Australian Open 2R

It doesn't show it on first pass, but Week 15 of NFL action should provide some major shakeups in the power rankings.
This Thursday Night Football looked good before the season. A duel between the Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts meant an elite defense of the former facing off against Andrew Luck of the latter.
Instead? A Brock Osweiler-Jacoby Brissett showdown played to a 25-13 result, with the Broncos emerging the winners of an affair with more on the line in the draft standing than anything else.
The rest of the slate isn't as shrug-worthy, not with games like Gr...more
