Scaling Cloud-Native Applications

Cloud-native applications are by design scalable, right? I mean, the premise is we decompose our applications into smaller, independently scalable components. So surely that means these components scale and behave well.

Today’s panel looks at lessons from scaling applications and the things that may go wrong. We’ll look at issues faced by a variety of engineering teams facing scaling applications in cloud-native environments. Expect conversation around containers, orchestrators, serverless, and the importance of observability. Along the way, we’ll also discuss practices and lessons learned from some of these scalability challenges.
