Containers have been fairly mainstream for years. And though their flexibility meets the needs of most development teams, some of us are still hesitant to start using them. Part of that hesitation may come from not understanding what it takes to manage and monitor containers. 

In this online workshop recording, Sylvia Fronczak (Software Engineer) will cover the basics of CaaS and CaaS providers. She'll give an intro to key concepts and provide some hands-on examples. And, she'll provide some next steps for getting started with monitoring containers.

Sylvia will:

  • Provide an overview of CaaS
  • Discuss differences between PaaS, CaaS, and VMs
  • Introduce container orchestration concepts
  • Show a live demo of building and deploying Docker containers to the cloud

After the basics are covered, Dave will highlight some common areas to consider in monitoring containers. Along the way, he will show aspects of Scalyr that make monitoring containers practical.
