The adoption of Docker brings with it many challenges, not all of themtechnical. There is a clear vision of Docker regularly articulated thatencompasses microservices, decoupled applications, agile and continuous deliveryand integration, and DevOps. But the application of this vision often flounders when confronted by the legacy structures of working and successful businesses.

This talk draws on the experienced gained from several attempts to lead changewithin technical organisations. The speaker experienced both failure to effectchange (through productization of a bespoke software stack, and the introduction of Erlang), and success (moving to a Continuous Improvement modelof complex software maintenance). These experiences informed a successful drive to Docker as the build and delivery system of a 700-strong software company,with significant efficiency improvements.
As with most historical revolutions, the integration of the vision with realityresulted in corners cut and principles compromised in order to effect change.This talk is a discussion of the lessons learned from these experiences in an effort to help the listener clarify and overcome the unique challenges their own organisation brings to making change happen.
