About the Talk

Cloud native technologies promise scalability, robustness, and operational efficiency for applications, but the cloud native landscape is broad, complex, and constantly evolving. As a developer, it’s hard to know which cloud native technologies to use and how to use them.

In this talk, we give an overview of current cloud native technologies, and show how DigitalOcean’s products can help you use them. We also share the latest updates to DigitalOcean Kubernetes and DigitalOcean Container Registry.

What You’ll Learn

  • What does “cloud native” mean?
  • How DigitalOcean products can help you use the latest cloud native technologies
  • New features and updates to DigitalOcean Kubernetes and DigitalOcean Container Registry
