Containers are becoming the preferred method for deploying applications. Several open-source technologies are maturing around containers including Docker Engine, Kubernetes, Swarm, and OpenShift.

There are significant benefits to working with containers. Some of the reasons to choose containerization include resource management, security, and portability. Despite the benefits, the technology and the ecosystem around them is overwhelming. This talk aims to demystify much of this complexity.

Join us for a look under the hood at containers and orchestration. Whether you’re new to containers or a more seasoned user, you’re invited. Come gain a better understanding of how these tools work together.


Learning Outcomes

– Understand why containers emerged as a technology

– Explain how orchestration aids in the deployment of containerized applications
