Your Host

About this Episode

Eric Anderson (@ericmander) catches up with Torin Sandall (@sometorin), co-creator of Open Policy Agent (OPA), the open-source, general-purpose policy engine. By focusing on demonstrating OPA’s value through case studies, targeted interviews, and word-of-mouth, Torin and the folks at Styra were able to grow OPA into the emerging standard for unified policy enforcement across the cloud-native stack.

In this episode we discuss:

  • When Netflix stumbled across OPA and delivered its “Cinderella moment”
  • Why OPA was designed to be developer-centric
  • The value of demonstrating OPA’s use cases to the industry
  • How one user created an RPG engine with OPA
