Think about a revolutionary invention. What’s the first thing that comes to mind?
Maybe it’s the advent of the internet, or perhaps your brain skipped all the way back to the steam engine. When asked that question, how many people do you think would land on shipping containers? They might not be the first thing that comes to mind, but the invention of shipping containers in the 1950s catalyzed change. Introducing a standard container helped pave the way for faster, cheaper and more reliable transportation of goods across the globe.
In many ways parallel to how physical containers shaped shipping, application containers are revolutionizing software development methods.
