1&1 Discusses Containers at Container Conf 2017

This was a shared event, covering both Container Conf and Continuous Lifecycle, held November 14-17 in Mannheim, Germany. We were excited to meet and talk with the attendees, who were mainly developers looking to learn from their peers about latest developments and best practices in this fast-evolving environment.

1&1 was one of the few exhibitors in attendance with a container clusters solution to market. Gavin Etheridge, Product Owner at 1&1 SE, gave a presentation titled "The Reality of Using Containers to Build Products."

We were interested to hear more about defining standards and implementing monitoring and operations processes as the use of containers matures. The presentations also put a focus on the changing needs of developers, as their use of containers matures into operating larger scale projects in a live environment.
