6:30 PM - 7:15 PM: Dave Wakeman - If you're a developer, your twitter or LinkedIn feeds are probably filled with posts about Cloud Native applications, Microservices, and technologies like Kubernetes and cloud foundry. That's great for new applications, but did you know it can also apply to existing ones? Come join us to talk about Microservices and Kubernetes, and how you can take advantage of them with your existing applications and new ones as well!
Bring your questions and your laptops; you will get the opportunity to deploy your first Microservices application and see a demo of an existing application that has been migrated to Microservices and deployed to Kubernetes.
