Presented at CloudDevelop 2016 Building cloud native applications in containers is a new hot topic. Netflix and Google are two prime examples that have been doing it successfully for some time. Some of the new exciting projects like Docker and Kubernetes are focused on cloud native applications in containers. There are supposed to be numerous benefits including the ability to scale applications out easily while doing development on small systems like laptops, the ability for the system to handle some operational problems, and the capability to safely deploy updates to production many times per day. But, what does this look like in practice and how do you start the move to cloud native and containerized applications? In this session we'll look at what makes up a cloud native application, how they work, and how you can start small. We'll look at applications from an architecture and process point of view along with how you can deploy them to AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud. You'll walk away ready to start development on a cloud native app.
