Industry practices around how we develop and deploy software are moving quickly toward a few simple yet wildly influential trends centered on software running and scaling in the cloud. Enterprises and startups alike are adopting cloud technologies, containerization, infrastructure automation, and agile methodologies and applying them to large-scale deployments. As a software engineer on a Cloud R&D team helping enterprise customers adopt these modern trends, Topher has experienced the gamut when it comes to cloud transformation journeys and upcoming trends in how software is developed, deployed, and managed in the cloud. This talk will give an overview of emerging trends covering how cloud-native applications, platform as a service, automation, and infrastructure as code can help with deploying software as well as migrating software from one infrastructure-as-a-service provider to another. Attendees will learn how to navigate through the buzzwords in cloud computing and leave with an understanding of how to deploy, manage, and scale their software in the cloud.
