Storied engineer Mark Lucovsky started his career working on low-level albeit important technology — microcode loaders, first-level fault handlers, kernels. In the course of his career and a series of jobs at Digital Equipment, Microsoft, Google, and VMware he moved up the proverbial stack on such projects as Microsoft Hailstorm (look it up) and the Cloud Foundry platform-as-a-service.

What’s he doing now? Building mobile apps, or more specifically, the Steller mobile app from Mombo Labs. Hear about his journey from cloud maker to cloud consumer and why, in this golden age of cloud computing, you really shouldn’t freak out when your cloud provider “shoots you through the head” because, frankly, it’s going to happen.

But first, Derrick Harris and I yack a bit from the Structure Data show about the big Cloudera funding found, Microsoft (finally) bringing Office to the iPad.
