Abstract

Imagine a world where developers don't even need to know what a container is? A world where writing code is literally all a developer needs to worry about. Turns out that world already exists - and in multiple forms! Ed will cover how to increase development efficiency and will use the open source Cloud Foundry Application Runtime as an example. The talk will include a live demonstration of taking code, written in any language or framework, and running it on multiple clouds with a single command. The talk will also explore platform components, architecture and share with you what types of workload are best suited to different deployments.
