A Match Made in The Cloud: Container Apps + Dapr

It couldn't be a more suitable time to be in the cloud business! Using today's bleeding edge innovations and tech, writing, and running distributed applications which truly scale and handle high load should no longer difficult. Yet despite the ease of development, running distributed apps must be just as easy if we want to make a real software revolution. Introducing: Azure Container Apps.

Throughout this session, we will talk about the future of app development and deployment. Specifically, I will showcase Dapr as well as Container Apps. Dapr is an event-driven, portable runtime for microservices development on cloud and edge which aims to solve all the challenges above and make the development of worry-free microservices-based applications a breeze. Azure Container Apps is a serverless platform that enables developers to run their containerized workloads. Container Apps are ideal for developers who want to run their applications as if they were running them on Kubernetes, but don't want to manage the operations of the cluster. This simplifies the process of developing and deploying our containers to Azure.

Join me for a pragmatic take on cloud native application development and deployment!
