Docker makes it easy to containerize existing applications and run them on arbitrary machines. Kubernetes takes it to the next level by offering fast and easy container orchestration at runtime. Containerization has been common practice in the Linux world for years, but lately, developers on the Microsoft stack have jumped on the Docker bandwagon too.

In this presentation, we’ll share the journey of our team that led us from hope to desperation to glory in turning on-premise simulators into a full-blown cloud-native service, with some ancient pieces still in there. It surely can be done!
