Featuring Guest Speaker Gene Kim
Author of The Phoenix Project
Join Gene Kim (author of The Phoenix Project) plus speakers from Google and Apprenda for a conversation on the state of DevOps in the age of containers and container orchestration. We’ll discuss the growth of Docker and Kubernetes, analyze the shift in focus from automation to full orchestration in distributed environments, and learn from the experiences Google has had running containers and clusters at massive scale.
