How we run our applications is always evolving – Monoliths to microservices, migration to the cloud, containerisation, improved orchestration. Containers have become synonymous with microservices but they present a new set of challenges…

In this talk I will share some of our experiences and rationale behind early adoption of containerisation using an in-house written orchestration mechanism through to migrating to Kubernetes.

In this talk I will discuss:

  • Our motivation for moving services into containers
  • The pain that went along with very early adoption
  • Which development approaches and practices help or hinder containerising a service
  • How our development process changed when we started running in containers
  • Best practices and lessons learnt around migrations
