Presented at EnterpriseJS NYC ---
We are in the midst of a significant shift in the application deployment ecosystem. A recent Node.js Foundation survey found that 45% of developers surveyed use Node.js with containers. As companies look to build out their next-generation architectures, Node.js and containerization are emerging as two major components for powering rapid technical innovation.
However, these dynamic environments are challenging, even for the most experienced software developers out there. In this presentation, Ross Kukulinski, a NodeJS Evangelist, container enthusiast, and NodeSource technical product manager discussed why Node.js has become a popular choice in microservices-oriented, containerized dynamic environments. He provided an overview of the container ecosystem, what pitfalls often occur when running Node in containers, and how to avoid them.
Ross Kukulinski works at NodeSource as a Technical Product Manager and is a member of the NodeJS Evangelism Working Group. His technical expertise is in architecting, developing, and deploying scalable, containerized, real-time cloud applications. When he's not fostering enterprise adoption of NodeJS, Ross can be found running Node in production using containerized tools including Docker, CoreOS and Kubernetes.
Ross is a frequent speaker at technology conferences and events including QCon, CoreOS Fest, ContainerCamp, NodeSummit, KrankyGeek WebRTC, and Philly Tech Week. Ross has also published an O'Reilly Video Tutorial Series called Introduction to CoreOS: Learn to Deploy, Monitor, and Scale Containerized Applications.
