Containers Virtual Event - Using Containers to Build a Microservices Architecture

The Red Hat Containers Virtual Event is going to be held next week on 19 Jan 2017 from 11:00 EST until 13:15 EST (11am - 1:15pm).

What's this about you say?

Well, the introductions goes like this:

Now more than ever, we know that modern application development and deployment are tied to business growth. A business is eight times more likely to gain share if it is at the forefront of digital maturity. Speed, security, and operational efficiency are the key elements that will determine success or failure. Linux containers, used correctly, will help your organization deliver all three.

Attend Containers for the Enterprise | A Red Hat virtual event to find out how to unlock the potential of Linux containers in your enterprise.

We’ll explain how Linux containers:
  • Deliver new applications faster
  • Are a core component of DevOps practice
  • Lower deployment and maintenance costs
  • Ensure application portability
You’ll gain insights on Container adoption from Forrester principal analyst Dave Bartoletti, hear Red Hat’s container vision and strategy, and learn directly from the experts who are delivering these capabilities to organizations like yours today.

After the keynotes, I am kicking off the first track with the following talk:

Using Containers to Build a Microservices Architecture

Microservices are more than just building software. There are questions around architecture, your organization, processes and your way of thinking. Innovation does not come naturally to everyone, so let's explore the journey you need to take as you leverage your current architecture and learn how the foundational building blocks to microservices are containers.
