Powering Microservices with Docker, Kubernetes, and Kafka
Organisations are building their applications around microservice architectures because of the flexibility, speed of delivery, and maintainability they deliver.

Execute a single command and you have a lightweight, self-contained sandbox; another command removes all trace when you’re done. Need an identical copy of your application stack in multiple environments? Build your own container image and then your entire development, test, operations, and support teams can launch an identical clone environment.

Containers are revolutionizing the entire software lifecycle: from the earliest technical experiments and proofs of concept through development, test, deployment, and support. Orchestration tools manage how multiple containers are created, upgraded and made highly available. Orchestration also controls how containers are connected to build sophisticated applications from multiple, microservice containers.

This session introduces you to technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes & Kafka which are driving the microservices revolution. Learn about containers and orchestration – and most importantly how to exploit them for stateful services.
