Kelly Looney shares an incremental approach to introducing containers into complex, distributed applications—resulting in modernization with less risk and more reward. You’ll learn how developers and operations engineers are using containers to get out of the business of managing infrastructure and into the business of delivering innovation and business value and how good up-front planning allows for a clean separation between infrastructure, platform, and service concerns. Along the way, Kelly demonstrates how to evaluate which components of your applications are best suited for containers, how to experiment safely and get fast feedback, and how to increase and scale your container adoption.
