Containers, Docker and Kubernetes. We hear so much about them these days, but the tech is moving so fast that it can be challenging to understand what they are and the impact they will have. Come to this session to get a foundational container technical education. Find out what they are, and why they are gaining so much traction in the development community. You will get a technical overview on containers and Kubernetes. The speaker will employ terms and use cases relatable to infrastructure engineers. You will also see some demos of this technology in action to bring the concepts home. This session will close with a short discussion of the latest VMware technology relevant in the container space.
