Speed, security and simplicity: Creating Container Images with Cloud Native Buildpacks
Presented by: Daniel Mikusa
Buildpacks are a pluggable, modular, language-agnostic tool that takes application source code and in turn give you an OCI (Open Container Initiative) image which you can run using Docker, Kubernetes or your OCI Runtime of choice.
Developers: You no longer need to worry about tedious tasks like finding trusted images, installing/updating packages, adding agents and monitoring tools and writing Dockerfiles. You write code and buildpacks take care of the rest.
The higher-level abstraction of buildpacks allows you, as a developer, to focus less time on building containers and more time being productive, writing code and providing value for your employer.
Too good to be true? Don't believe it? Come check out this session! It will explore how Cloud Native Buildpacks work, you'll see examples of how you can use them to create images from source code in your favorite languages, and you'll learn how to integrate buildpacks into common development workflows.
