Developers want to build applications. So how do we get our app out there in the real world? How do we make sure our app runs everywhere like it runs on our local dev environment?

That’s where Docker came in, however, Docker was not enough to run our application at scale. Kubernetes ( helps us scale our application and gives us many other benefits. Nevertheless, all of these new tools comes with their own steep learning curve.

OpenShift is a hybrid cloud, enterprise Kubernetes application platform. What it means for the developer is that OpenShift takes care of many kubernetes nuances and lets developer do what they do best, "develop".

In this talk we will see where OpenShift fits in the cloud native spectrum and how to make use of OpenShift to run our microservice based applications.

Attendees can expect to learn:

- What are the main differences between OpenShift and Kubernetes
- OpenShift features


- Understanding of Kubernetes will help connect the dots, but will have resources covering the basics.
