After this session, you will have a solid overview of how common problems can be solved when developing cloud native applications for Kubernetes.
“Public Cloud: yes or no?” – a question radically outpaced by the train of technology. More and more companies are looking into the advantages and disadvantages of a public cloud infrastructure.
