Senior Software Development Manager

Web Services aren't new. However, the resurgence of microservices as an architectural style coupled with the popularity of Docker style containers is creating new opportunities for developers. As an open platform container technology, Docker is rapidly being adopted by organizations large and small ranging from startups to web properties and apps you use every day.

In this session, you'll get a look from Rick G. Garibay on what this microservices buzz is all about and why the container deployment model is such a great fit. You'll learn how to get up and running with Docker containers to deploy your apps that take advantage of both isolation and reuse and how Docker allows you to further bridge the gap between development and operations resulting in unprecedented agility and flexibility.

Moreover, you'll learn how this new deployment model promotes continuous delivery while avoiding the traditional vendor lock-in issues inherent with traditional PaaS platforms giving you the flexibility to move between your own data center and public cloud providers of your choice with ease.

You will learn:

  • Gain an understanding of what microservices are all about
  • Learn how container technology is revolutionizing the way we design, build and deploy service-oriented applications
  • Learn how you Docker containers allow you to choose the public cloud provider of your choice with no compromise or lock in
