As a global organization, amazee.io is privileged to have a “boots on the ground” view of the innovation and creativity behind many of today’s top technologies and trends all over the world.

Deploying web applications on Kubernetes, without the pain

There are many great reasons to host your web applications on Kubernetes, except that Kubernetes is really hard! In his session, Toby Bellwood, Product Lead Lagoon at amazee.io, outlined how the Lagoon team has removed most of the complexity from the process, enabling web developers to focus on web development, and not maintaining build systems.
