It isn’t until you start running your cloud native applications at scale, dealing with outages and making upgrades that you see the full picture of working with containers. These are some of the challenges DevOps can expect after they get their cloud native applications running.

At this meetup, Mesosphere’s Ben Hindman will share his experience with how to better prepare for critical challenges and surprising realizations when running cloud native applications at scale. He’ll share his advice from years as a leader in the cloud native movement, working on the front lines with DevOps around the world.

After this meetup, you can expect to walk away with:

An understanding of the critical challenges in running — not just deploying — containers in production

Best practices for dealing with those critical challenges

A start to finish checklist that will help you navigate your way through the cloud native journey and ensure you don’t miss a critical step to success.
