How you run your applications is always evolving - Monoliths to microservices, migration to the cloud, containerisation, improved orchestration. Containers have become synonymous with microservices but they present a new set of challenges. In this talk Nicky will share some of her experiences and rationale behind early adoption of containerisation using an in-house written orchestration mechanism through to migrating to Kubernetes.
During this talk you will also learn:
Nicky's motivation for moving services into containers
The pain that went along with very early adoption
Which development approaches and practices help or hinder containerising a service
How Nicky's development process changed when she started running in containers
Best practices and lessons learnt around migrations
3 years on: what does she get out of containers now and was the journey worth it?

Nicky has been working as a developer and leading teams for more than 15 years, across a wide range of industries: travel, banking, media and telecommunications. Since joining the Financial Times three years ago, she has been heavily involved with the journey through various technologies and approaches: starting with a migration to microservices and then migrating those microservices into containers and the adoption of Go, and most recently moving from a hand-rolled container orchestration and deployment platform to Kubernetes. She loves to learn new technologies and over the last couple of years that has included Go, Graph datastores, containerisation. She exploits this keen interest in new technologies to provide more capabilities in less time with a reduced operational overhead.
