About this event


Because of the benefits of containers, applications have been containerized recently.
Containers have magically changed the way we deploy and manage applications allowing us to build, develop, test, and even deploy applications on a single system with no upgrade downtimes.

What shall we cover?

This talk shall emphasize the different ways we can leverage Containers and Kubernetes to deploy and run robust applications.

We shall talk about how we can containerize and run applications on Kubernetes which is the missing layer that gives us the ability to manage many containers by providing features that enable containers to scale, talk to each other and work in harmony.

Who should attend?

Software developers, DevOps engineers and those who would like to learn about Cloud technologies.


By the end of the talk, participants shall understand containers and how to use them along with how to deploy containerized applications to kubernetes.
