There is still some time before the next GOTO Berlin conference takes place. To give you the GOTO feeling until then, we schedule a wide range of free GOTO Nights in the months before.
GOTO Nights are designed for people who want to stay up to date with the latest tools, technologies, processes and practices in the software industry.
GOTO Nights are free evening events driven by involvement from both speakers and participants. Come along to learn something new and network with your peers! We will provide you with a first class speaker (or two) - all you have to do is: sign up and show up ;)
GOTO Nights provide you with an opportunity to:
• Hear excellent speakers • Learn about the latest trends • Reach beyond your current language, platform, or practices • Increase your technical depth and breadth • Expand your professional network • Connect with the global software community • Share your experience and expertise with others
We cover a vast range of topics on our GOTO Nights. If you have a topic you are keen to learn more about, please let us know and we'll try to organize a talk.

In this talk, we'll explore some history of workload isolation from the 1960s to date, take a peek under the hood of popular workload isolation mechanisms(Linux containers, MicroVMs…) and discuss the standards that make them play well across multiple vendors.
Isolation, when it comes to humans is a grave punishment. Turns out, for software workloads, this is a highly sought after feature to effectively utilize infrastructure resources(compute/storage/network, etc.) and to lower the cost of operation.
When you throw a container image or a function at a public cloud provider, they are glad to run it for you at affordable rates because of advancements in workload isolation. Similar isolation primitives are what enable you to replicate your application's entire infrastructure with just a `docker-compose up` command.
