Abstract

Implementing a continuous delivery (CD) pipeline is not trivial, and the introduction of container technology to the development stack can introduce additional challenges and requirements. In this talk, we will look at the high-level steps that are essential for creating an effective pipeline for developing and deploying containerized applications. Topics covered include the impact of containers on CD, adding metadata to a container image, validating NFR changes imposed by executing Java applications within a container, and lessons learned the hard way (in production).
