Containers & Microservices: Definitions, Examples, & Visual Aids

Or, How I'll Take Any Excuse to Draw on the Lightboard

Navigating the tech world is a little like being a spy—you hear terms like "containers" and "Docker" and "microservices" thrown around like awesome code words, but you're a little nervous to use them yourself in case someone realizes you don't know what you're talking about. (Just me? Cool. Cool cool cool.)

Anyway, when I got the chance to play with a lightboard and learn exactly what containers are, how microservices work, get a definition of container security, and why this matters to IT and business players, I jumped on it. Hope you enjoy the result, and if you'd like a deeper dive into these topics check out the blog posts linked below the video!
