9:30am - 10:45am

Level: Introductory

Aaron Schlesinger

Developer Advocate, Azure


Containers and container orchestrators like Kubernetes are all the rage these days, and are more important than ever for developers to learn. These technologies introduce a paradigm shift for how apps are built, tested and deployed to production, and the learning curve can be steep developers new to the ecosystem.

How do these technologies improve on what I use now?

  • Where do I even start?
  • What tools do I need to learn?
  • What does the dev/test workflow look like?
  • Kuber-what?

We’ll start by covering what containers actually are, what they do, why they matter, how you can use them right now, and what tools you can use to help. You’ll walk away with everything you need to get started using containers in your workflows, from your inner dev loop to deploying a container to production.

With our new understanding of containers, we’ll explore how containers and Kubernetes fit together. You’ll walk away with a high level understanding of the platform, how it helps your production apps, and the tools you can leverage to deploy your app to Kubernetes.

This talk will include live demos of container technologies in action, and you’ll walk away with the knowledge and tools you can use to develop with containers and deploy your containerized app to production.
