How you run your applications is always evolving - Monoliths to microservices, migration to the cloud, containerisation, improved orchestration. Containers have become synonymous with microservices but they present a new set of challenges. In this talk Nicky will share some of her experiences and rationale behind early adoption of containerisation using an in-house written orchestration mechanism through to migrating to Kubernetes.
During this talk you will also learn:
Nicky's motivation for moving services into containers
The pain that went along with very early adoption
Which development approaches and practices help or hinder containerising a service
How Nicky's development process changed when she started running in containers
Best practices and lessons learnt around migrations
3 years on: what does she get out of containers now and was the journey worth it?
