9:30am to 5:30pm
In this workshop, we’ll briefly introduce the core concepts of Microservices, before diving deep into the details behind how you can build and deploy them. Attendees will participate in a number of interactive exercises using Docker and friends to learn some concrete techniques for managing Microservices, including service discovery, scaling via multi-host Docker, and version management.
This workshop is definitely more about the ‘how’ rather than the ‘why’.
