Ashish Kuthiala is a senior director for HP Enterprise, overseeing the organization's DevOps portfolio. We talked to him about the transformation of enterprise architectures toward technologies that support a more nimble, agile DevOps stance -- a change that Kuthiala says will ultimate impact everyone in a company: not just developers and operations people, but marketing, customer care, and even accounting and finance.

Plus, we tell you what to think about the tech impact of Brexit, Pinterest's new "shopping bag" and visual search features, and the advent of personal chatbots just for you.

Ambarish "Rish" Mitra is the CEO of Blippar, an augmented reality platform that dozens of brands are using to add interactivity to their products. Point the Blippar app at a logo, and you can unlock virtual games and extra content. But Blippar is also working on AI technology that can identify ordinary objects in the real world like chairs, dogs, birds, and more.

Plus, we tell you what to think about the surge of virtual reality news at the Game Developers' Conference and at GDC, and we discuss the pros and cons of the algorithmic timelines coming to both Twitter and Instagram.

David Wadhwani joined AppDynamics as its CEO and president in late 2015 after a storied career at Adobe. AppDynamics, which provides application monitoring services for developers and enterprises, recently raised $150 million in a round that reportedly valued the company at close to $2 billion. We talk with Wadhwani about the investment climate, application performance monitoring in general, DevOps, and about how he helped Adobe manage its transition from packaged software to cloud services.

Plus, we tell you what to think about the possible bursting of the "unicorn" bubble in 2016, Apple abandoning its iAd platform, Google's AMP platform for faster mobile pages, and Jordan Novet's home-built Oculus Rift-compatible PC.
