It seems clear the tech world thinks containers are pretty darn neat. This talk will look at how you can move beyond containers as atomic units of deployment to making a full Platform as a Service. In particular, this talk will focus on using Docker, Kubernetes, and OpenShift to build all the things needed above containers to make a full platform. The lessons learned with this technology stack would be applicable across any project that you want to move beyond deploying a few containers. Style will be informal with discussion!
