Layers: A historic and futuristic look at the abstractions we build and destroy


As an industry, we have a long history of building abstraction layers upon which we build great things. But sometime they get in the way. This talk will survey some of the biggest abstraction layers we’ve built, and analyze how they might have gotten in our way, and look at some attempts to squash them. Then we’ll turn our eyes to Kubernetes / Mesos, and evaluate how those abstraction layers fit into the bigger picture, and how they might be squashed in the future.
