Why You Should Learn about Containers

Grant Fritchey has an editorial:

I find myself doing more and more work with containers. Yet, I also find that a lot of people seem to be resistant to the concept. I’m always surprised when technologists reject technology without fully understanding what it does. Let’s talk about this just a little.

I completely agree with Grant’s assessment and want to pile on a bit about cloud services and containers. If you’re using or thinking of using services like Azure Machine Learning or Azure IoT Hub, that work is all containerized. And there’s a lot which runs in containers that we don’t even think about. You don’t need to live your life in containers or run everything from containers, but they’re useful in several contexts.
