During his career, the cloud has evolved from just a few services like virtual machines to offering so much more. Asfand will discuss how these amazing new services, like AWS Fargate and Azure Container Instances, can be used to support and enhance the web applications we create, allowing us to reap the benefits of the modern cloud while delegating lots of laborious infrastructure management away to the cloud providers themselves.
