Summary

Deploying software in production is often a tedious job. A lot of tools have emerged and Linux containers are today’s biggest newcomers, with Docker being the most popular runtime. Rocket on the other hand is a young container runtime that tries to bring more security and more flexibility.
The audience will get an introduction to containers, will see a basic usage demo and will learn when to use which runtime. While containers require the users to have a paradigm shift (compared to virtual machines) we will look at solutions to benefit only from the performance improvements without rebuilding your application specifically for containers.
