Cloud Native Development: a True Paradigm Shift

This event has passed


Over the last 20 years, software system architecture has undergone a dramatic shift away from the n-tier application architecture that was popularized in the 90s. We have seen system architectures become both simpler and yet more complex with the advent of cloud platforms, virtual machines, and containers, combined with practices like infrastructure as code, automation, and instrumentation. In this session, we’ll discuss how Cloud Native applications are fundamentally different from the systems of 20 years ago, and we’ll take a deeper look at some of the building blocks of modern Cloud Native solutions.
