Containers have been a driving force in this industry for the last 5+ years. In the meanwhile we have seen the raise of other compute patterns, such as serverless. 2020 seems to be the year where the line between containers and serverless starts to blurry. We are seeing the raise of container serverless platforms (e.g. AWS Fargate) as well as the raise of higher order abstractions above container platforms (e.g. OpenFaaS, ECS CLI v2, …) that allows developers to focus on their code instead of managing containers. In this session we will discuss how the serverless benefits are starting to permeate into the container ecosystem and we will provide real life examples of how some AWS and OSS technologies can be used to abstract and remove part of the undifferentiated heavy lifting developers often need to take care of.

Interesting description of attempts to hide infrastructure to developers

Interesting introduction to a more serverless approach to container management.
