My Talk about #BuildKit at #DockerCon Live 2020

This week I had the honor of talking at DockerCon Live 2020. It was a dream come true and I was really excited considering that over roughly 70K registered for the event and nearly 24K watched the keynote. I presented how to improve container image builds using BuildKit. In contrast to many other virtual conferences, talks were pre-recorded and played at the designated time. This approach allowed speakers to interact with the audience during the talk.

In my talk I focused on creating container images and covered the advantages BuildKit offers:

I also added guidelines for using BuildKit without the Docker CLI and how to transition from docker build to buildctl.

The event page contains the video as well as the chat transcript to follow questions and answers.

The slides are a result of my slide and demo build system. Take a look at the release for this talk.
