Continuous Delivery with Containers: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
Implementing a continuous delivery (CD) pipeline is not trivial, and the introduction of container technology to the development stack can introduce additional challenges and requirements. In this talk we will look at the high-level steps that are essential for creating an effective pipeline for creating and deploying containerized applications. Topic covered include: * The impact of containers on CD * Adding metadata to container images * Validating NFR changes imposed by executing Java applications within a container * Lessons learned the hard way (in production)
