Presentation: CICD, Microservices, Containers, and Automation are buzzwords spreading throughout software and app development spaces; but where do these architectures make sense to apply and what are the real benefits? In this presentation, Jeremiah explores key differences between complicated vs complex systems and how this applies to modern software development. Learn how modern, massively-scaled software companies are using processes that mimic natural systems to grow, evolve, and adapt to changing demands. We hope you will come away with a new perspective of your own technology systems and take home a few tools to better design those systems to scale and adapt.

Bret will highlight the far-reaching effects of this pivotal technology and how it's blazing a trail for the future of app development and deployment. For those that are already using Docker for development, he'll also highlight some details and decisions you'll need when taking containers into production.
