Achieving velocity is the new normal in software development and release practices. The adoption of DevOps, CI/CD practices and tooling is at the core of these gains. Container orchestration platforms like Kubernetes are incredibly powerful and companies of all shapes and sizes are finding it very difficult to get started. Often, this can be attributed to the lack of foundational skill sets required to succeed in their Kubernetes journey, including a lack of knowledge and experience with the Docker runtime and containers.
Having a deep understanding of the Docker runtime and containers is paramount to successfully adopt and operate Kubernetes. In this talk, Angel Rivera will discuss the skill sets that individuals and teams must develop prior to getting started with Kubernetes, including the critical aspects of the Docker runtime and containers. Attendees will walk away with a solid grasp of the foundational elements of Docker that will better prepare them for their DevOps and Kubernetes initiatives.
