Containers give you a way to run you application in a controlled environment, isolated from other applications running on the machine and from the underlying infrastructure.
It means that when you go to deploy, all the dependencies are published together. So you can finally say, “It worked on my machine” and mean it. All the dependencies with the same versions in your container will be there when you deploy to the cloud.
The live webcast media briefing on Windows 10 will be January 21 at 9am (Pacific) and you’ll be able to watch it at: http://www.microsoft.com/windows10story.
Microsoft promises an on-demand version to be available shortly after the event at the same link. We’re pretty excited about this event and to be able to talk about what’s next for Windows 10. You’ll hear directly from senior leaders from the Operating Systems Group including Terry Myerson, Joe Belfiore, Phil Spencer and CEO Satya Nadella.
Set your calendars.
