This year DockerCon was celebrated in a hybrid way, with sessions happening in person and people attending online. This meeting for developers took place Oct 4-5, 2023 Los Angeles.

Docker announced some new products and evolutions during the conference:

  • Docker Scout, the tool provided for security analysis, become GA and presented some new features like Policy Evaluation
  • Docker Build "next-gen" is the first step forward to a SaaS model in Docker. The goal is to move away building and running process from developers machines, to use Cloud resources instead of local resources
  • Docker Debug is an experimental tool to help accessing problematic containers and use additional capabilities provided by the tool to identify the issue
  • Docker AI is still in early access, but there was a live demo of an assistant (similar to Copilot) helping with creating Docker Assets and executing Docker Commands. Also a reference GenAI stack is available in https://github.com/docker/genai-stack

Hyland was participating with a session on adding templates to the Docker Init command. This feature, in addition to the Docker Compose Include directive, may help to create custom Alfresco templates for deployment. The slides are available in https://www.slideshare.net/angelborroy/before-after-docker-init, and the source code for the project in https://github.com/aborroy/docker-init-with-templates. The recording of the session will be available eventually.

There is still a lot of material to review ahead, but let me compile a short list of interesting projects for you to test.

"Secure Development with Docker", by Yves Brissaud, is a compilation different measures that can be applied with Docker Desktop. Lab material is live in https://github.com/docker/dc23-secure-workshop

"The Matrix Reloaded: Docker-ized and Multi-Platform Ready", by James Spurin, was an amazing experiment to learn the basics of Docker building optimization. Initial material is available in https://github.com/spurin/dockercon2023-cmatrix-demo

"Getting Started with Wasm, Docker, and Kubernetes", by Nigel Poulton, provides an step by step tutorial to build and deploy an application using WASM in Docker and Kubernetes. Available in https://github.com/nigelpoulton/dockercon2023-wasm-lab
