Containers are an amazing technology that is revolutionising how we do computing in the modern age. 5 years ago, people were starting to use Docker and realising the potential that container technology could offer. Now every major cloud provider offers a container service with the addition of container orchestrator like Kubernetes that millions of developers around the world are starting to use. Now many of our applications are running in containers why not use that magical portable configuration that containers offer to replicate our production environments locally on our laptops? enter MicroShed and the Testcontainers frameworks. Testcontainers run and test with true-to-production environments in development with minimal re-writing of your test code giving you more time as a developer to write your application. This talk will give you a great overview of the technology and will demo how simple it is to create and run a MicroShed test in Maven.
