The Rise of Containers and the Future of Application Development

A session at Signal

Containers have quickly gained recognition as a highly secure, persistent form of virtualization and are now taking over the enterprise. Like virtual machines once did, containers are poised to spark a 10:1 consolidation of the data center, forever changing the way we build the Internet. This revolution is having a major impact on application development and deployment efficiency, and it's ultimately allowing for greater innovation.

In this session, Joyent CTO Bryan Cantrill will discuss how containers have evolved from a trendy developer tool to an increasingly ubiquitous technology, as well as how they're affecting the future of computing. Exactly how does OS virtualization impact developers, and what does it mean for the future of application development? Bryan will pull from his decade of experience running containers in production to answer lingering questions around container security and discuss how this technology is capable of improving efficiency and speed across industries.
