Presentation: Cloud Native Applications and Infrastructures Panel

Track: Languages of Infrastructure

Location: Garden A

Duration: 10:35am - 11:25am

Day of week:


Developers these days are integrating cloud native capabilities deeply into their application architectures. This is a challenge and and opportunity: we can supercharge our applications with elastic scale, advanced capabilities including AI and ML, and more — and yet, historically we've outsource "infrastructure" concerns to our operations teams. Join us on this panel to discuss how this is fundamentally changing, and how developers are becoming more empowered than ever to harness the cloud in a major way.
