"Cloud Native Architecture and Kubernetes"
Containers represent the next generation of virtualization for IT infrastructure, and they are one of the most important innovations since the virtual machine. Kubernetes and Docker have made containers mainstream and serve as the foundations for most Cloud Native Architectures. In this talk, Dewpoint will cover three general topics to help introduce key concepts and uses of container technology:
1. A general overview of containers and why they are an important step in the evolution IT infrastructure.
2. A short talk from a senior developer on what it was like to learn Kubernetes with a short demonstration of a learning environment.
3. A case study from a recent project completed for a Dewpoint customer using Azure App Services and Docker Containers.
Time will be left at the end for questions and answers.
