We are in the midst of a significant shift in the application deployment ecosystem. A recent Node.js Foundation survey found that 45% of developers surveyed use Node.js with containers. As companies look to build out their next-generation architectures, Node.js and containerization are emerging as two major components for powering rapid technical innovation.
However, these dynamic environments are challenging, even for the most experienced software developers out there. In this presentation, Ross Kukulinski, a NodeJS Evangelist, container enthusiast, and NodeSource technical product manager will discuss why Node.js has become a popular choice in microservices-oriented, containerized dynamic environments. He will discuss how to get started with Node.js, Docker and Kubernetes and what pitfalls often occur when starting and how to avoid them.
