Playing Port Authority – TDD for containers, M. Heiber, Thoughtworks, TechSummit

Test-Driven Development (TDD) for containers is like “playing port authority” where you check if your expectation is met within the environment you’re trying to deploy in before you do it. This approach to scaling an application is the way of the future according to Moritz Heiber, a “DevOps Birth Assistant” at Thoughtworks.

Find out how to use “infrastructure as code” with containers to improve the deployment process and reduce risks.
