Replicating production in your tests with the magic of containers

Development Practices

Containers have revolutionised how we design and build our applications. But with this move to containers, the parity between our development, testing and production environments has drifted even further apart. So how do we effectively test our cloud-native applications?  

Enter MicroShed and the Testcontainers frameworks - enabling true-to-production environments by leveraging the magic of containers with minimal re-writing of your test code. This talk will give you a great overview of this technology and will demo how simple it is to create and run a MicroShed test.

Scheduled on Tuesday from 15:50 to 16:40 in Gallery Hall
