"With the rise of Docker, we have seen an unprecedented interest from developers in container technologies. Many agree that they are highly beneficial for modern practices like Agile and DevOps. But there is a new kid in town that proclaims a more radical approach called Serverless. It suggests that you should only write high-level functions and react to events. The underlying compute infrastructure is transparent to the user. That raises the question: Should you still write your own containers? And who now needs containers in a serverless world?

In this talk we confront these two approaches from a containers advocate and serverless fanboy viewpoints. We show the differences, individual strengths and weaknesses and where they complement each other."
