WTF are Cloud Native Patterns - Card Workshop

11 February


Virtual 2 hour hands on workshop


Based on our experience in helping enterprises move to the cloud, Container Solutions has devised a set of patterns that make it easier for developers, managers, and executives to discuss, learn, and apply the best practices in Cloud Native. These are high-level patterns for strategy and risk reduction, intended to guide decision making—patterns for transforming your organisation and culture to this new way of thinking and working.


The workshop includes several exercises where you will use Pattern Cards to discuss and implement a Cloud Native Transformation. Before jumping into the action our workshop hosts will explain the concepts and provide a compelling business case why companies should take the leap into Cloud Native.

Who should attend?

No technical expertise is needed for this workshop—executives, managers, and engineers alike can join in.  The conversations sparked while playing the Pattern Card Game will help your team think through its own real-life challenges and opportunities.

  • A clear understanding of what is involved in a Cloud Native Transformation
