With the continued excitement around containers and the maturation of container architectures into high-level platforms, most software developers have been left wondering what’s next?

Much of the conversation these days has shifted to container automation using powerful orchestration tools, such as Kubernetes and Docker Swarm. Vincent Batts discusses the evolution of various container runtimes and interoperability and explores the current state of container standards, including the Open Containers Initiative, as well as where and how containers will continue to innovate.

This session is sponsored by Red Hat.
