We’ve heard how developers struggle with the current Docker toolset and why container best practices don’t work. What can we do differently?

At Slim.AI, we’re engineering a new workflow that puts developers in charge of how they build and optimize their containers, leading to fewer issues down stream, faster development…

To mitigate the challenges of deploying containers in production environments, to ensure consistency, and reduce risk, cloud providers and open-source engineers alike have authored plenty of articles enumerating their take on “container best practices.” We can summarize the main takeaways of these articles into these key learnings:

  • Best Practice #1…

TL;DR: We interviewed more than 30 developers to hear how organizations are handling cloud-native software development and delivery today. We learned a lot, and realized there’s still a long way to go.

Modern application development has come a long way thanks to DevOps practices. But front-line engineers still struggle with building apps for modern cloud-native infrastructure.
