    Cloud-native applications are characterized by highly distributed topologies consisting of many relatively small components (yup, usually called microservices). But the thing that sets them apart from the previous generation of apps is that they are expected to function flawlessly even while the environment they are running in is constantly changing, or even failing. All of this requires applying a new set of design patterns and practices and this session will introduce the key ones. The Twelve Factor App ( is a high-level articulation of some of these techniques that you may well have heard of, but its descriptions are relatively dense and the industry knowledge has evolved a fair bit since its publication.

    Cornelia Davis will go through the best practices for cloud-native applications and clear some of the mystery that shrouds 12-factor today. At the conclusion, attendees will understand what is needed for cloud-native applications, as well as why and how to deliver on those requirements.
