Presentation: Devops'n the Operating System



5:25pm - 6:15pm

Day of week:




This presentation will take a brief look at the history of how Devops principles and Operating Systems have converged. We will spend most of the time forward looking at what and how Unikernels will converge with Devops tools, processes and culture. We will end the discussion with a cool demo of how containers, unikernels and Devops ideas can work together in the future.
