But with the changes came some situations of "moved cheese", where finding the new v8 versions of v7 functionality can trip folks up. Callum shares some common trip-ups he and others have found, providing a useful guide for locating needed features that have moved.

What are containers? What is orchestration? With new technologies and buzz-words coming out every day, Callum discusses Docker and Kubernetes, how you can integrate them with Umbraco and answers our most important question - should you?
