Presentation: "Patterns in a Containerized World"

Track: Docker, Friends & Alternatives / Time: Friday 13:20 - 14:10 / Location: Hall 1

Structuring and developing applications in a containerized world involves new challenges. Some old best practices need to be adapted and new patterns evolve. In this talk Matthias Lübken will give an overview of typical patterns that he has seen in developing, deploying and operating applications that leverage containers.

Some of these are:

  • immutable deployment artefacts
  • config via arguments
  • general purpose sidekicks
  • special sidekicks for logging and metrics
  • ambassador for service discovery or other networking related things, like load-balancing and circuit breaking.

As containers are a fairly new concept for general purpose application development, we see this list far from complete. This talk can be seen as a starting point for a general discussion about best practices and resulting patterns.
