6:15-7:45: Spring Boot Apps in Containers Using Docker with Joel Crosswhite and Thomas Sheffer
Deployments can be a pain, and one of the biggest pain points is differences between development and production environments. Any difference in the system that an application is developed on versus the final system the application runs on introduces risk, and this risk must be managed to ensure successful releases.
One of the current, coolest ways to mitigate this risk is container technology, and tools to help with this such as Docker. This session will show you how to take an existing Spring Boot application and get it running inside of a container, connecting to external databases, handling logging, and demonstrating how the same application can run on a developers machine or a production machine with no changes.
