The shift to cloud computing involves a veritable plethora of new technologies and approaches. From the 12 factors to domain-drive design, change is afoot. Your organization is knee-deep in functions and platforms and containers, and while the technology is important, you can’t afford to overlook the importance of culture. Nathaniel Schutta examines what changes when you go to the cloud.

You’ll explore how to get there, how Conway’s law affects the success of your efforts, and how you can help people navigate the latest evolution in computing. You’ll also learn how cloud native computing impacts more than just your architecture.
