If you’ve worked with Web or cloud tech over the last 18 months, you’ll have heard about Containers and about how they let you spend more time on building software, instead of managing infrastructure. In this episode of Coffee with a Googler, we chat with Brian Dorsey into the benefits of using Containers in Google Cloud Platform for simplifying infrastructure management.
Important discussion topics covered in this episode include:
- Containers improve the developer experience. Regardless of how large the final deployment is, they are there to make it easier for you to succeed.
- Kubernetes -- an open source project to allow you to manage containers and fleets of containers.
Brian shares an example from Julia Ferraioli who used Containers (with Docker) to configure a Minecraft server, with many plugins, and Kubernetes to manage it.
