They’re also looking to move into Dev Ops.” Another one of the technologies emerging now is Docker containers.
Aaron, how do Docker containers help us implement this new agile and Dev Ops environment?
The majority of border girls, who are from the Tamil, Sinhalese and Muslim ethnic groups, lost their partners, fathers, and brothers in the war, which pitted government troops against Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) guerrillas, also known as the Tamil Tigers.
