Program the Cloud Using Containers as the Building Block | Docker


We are currently amidst a sea change that industry experts have envisioned for 50 years: all developers are slowly but surely becoming distributed systems engineers. This is largely thanks to the cloud, however Docker containers are a key building block helping to advance us towards this eventuality faster than ever before, by bringing the notion of cloud packaging and deployment to the core inner loop of software development, and enabling entirely new architectures.

In this talk, we’ll explore using containers as a fundamental unit of abstraction to program the cloud, building bigger things out of smaller things, and conclude that the cloud has become the new operating system. We’ll spend more time spelunking in code and bash prompts than slides. After this talk, you’ll never think about the words “infrastructure” or “configuration” the same way again.
