Let's assume you’ve already had every *Docker 101 tutorial* for breakfast. You’re now ready to take that brilliantly crafted application into production. But wait... first you need to test your container-based microservices architecture. What does the whole workflow look like? What about performance and security? And last but not least; how the hell do I run my microservices in production, and will it scale? Daniël will talk about the benefits, challenges, war stories and all the nook & crannies specific to using Docker in production. Researched over 500 companies using Docker in production, Daniël can tell you all about the good and the bad and the common Docker in production setups you see in the wild.

You will discover the wonderful world of container-based development and running microservice architectures at scale. By attending the talk, you’ll gain insight into how other companies are adopting Docker and gain insights how a proper workflow should look like when using containers. You'll also hear Daniël talk quite a bit about the concept of 'technology noise’. Daniël will demonstrate how there's actually a huge learning curve between the reality of a docker run alpine echo 'hello world' example and actually running your app in production. There's a mountain to climb here, and we all know how learning a new technology can be a major challenge. So Daniël wants to cover what's likely to be happening to your brain, as you're surrounded by all this noise. Part of that will include pointing-out the pitfalls and the solutions you need to avoid a loving minimal lovable service; o wait minimal lovable images.
