This tutorial is for you because
You are a practicing developer who needs to deploy and connect microservices.

Microservices and Docker go together like chocolate and peanut butter: microservice architectures provide organizations a tool to manage complexity of the development process, and application containers provide a new means to manage the dependencies and deployment of those microservices. But deploying and connecting those services together is still a challenge because it forces developers to design for operationalization. Timothy Gross explores autopiloting applications as a powerful design pattern to solve this problem. By the end of the training, you’ll understand the autopiloting design pattern and be able to apply this pattern to understand the transition from classic legacy architecture as well as how to use Docker, Consul, and Containerbuddy to build stateful applications on autopilot.
