Today we’re talking to Gahl Saraf, Co-Founder & CTO at Raftt. We discuss Gahl’s current perspective as a tech leader in Israel, how Raftt is actually increasing developer velocity by orders of magnitude, and why ChatGPT and other GenAI tools may be beyond their peak hype curves.
All of this right here, right now, on the Modern CTO Podcast!

About Gahl Saraf
Gahl is the co-founder and CTO at Raftt, giving developers fast iterations and rich feedback over devops-infra based environments. Think working dynamically over your Kubernetes environment with hot reloading, OOTB debugging and more. Check out https://raftt.io.
7 years at diverse teams at Meta (then Facebook) gave Gahl extensive experience in performance optimization, mobile OS internals, and scaling systems and processes to support hundreds of millions of people. Over and over Gahl found himself drawn to projects improving the developer experience, finding that unblocking devs consistently makes them happier and more efficient.
A background of technological research and development from the Israeli army provides a deep foundation of knowledge and techniques which Gahl drawes from to identify and solve hard problems.
Raftt accelerates dev cycles by enabling code hot-reload and debugging on top of Kubernetes environments, reducing iteration time to seconds and giving rich feedback for development. Developing on Kubernetes is great for similarity to production, but decreases dev productivity by requiring long iterations through CI pipelines and making debugging impossible. Raftt’s focus on developer efficiency means developers iterate quickly while utilizing high-fidelity environments for a high quality output. Raftt’s platform integrates seamlessly into existing Kubernetes environments and leverages established orchestration solutions with minimal configuration.
