Josh Michielsen, Condé Nast International - Killing bugs with KINDness

KIND - Kubernetes IN Docker - is a relatively new tool for running Kubernetes clusters within Docker. KIND enables engineers to spin up local development cluster in under a minute, utilising Docker containers as "nodes". KIND was originally born as a method of running conformance tests for the Kubernetes project itself and has quickly gained in popularity within the community thanks to its fast start-up time, ease of use, and growing feature set. In this talk I will briefly look at how KIND differs from other local cluster tools, discuss a range of possible use-cases for KIND - both for local development and within CI/CD pipelines, and finally demonstrate how you can get starting using KIND.

Ana-Maria Calin, Paybase - Demystifying Containerd and other container runtimes

In 2016 Docker span out its core container runtime functionality into a standalone component, Containerd. Using Containerd developers can customize, extend and swap out functionality as needed, without unnecessary abstraction getting in their way
This talk covers lessons learned by migrating a Kubernetes platform from a Docker Runtime based OS to a Containerd based OS. It includes observations around security, performance and usability, as well as the benefit of debugging using Crictl - Containerd’s cli, compared to the Docker cli. Find out if there’s a real benefit in swapping and the kind of effort required to achieve complete migration.

Prasenjit Sarkar, Oracle - Multi-Stage Docker Build for effective Containers – Why & How

Since the release of 17.05, Docker has introduced Multi-Stage Build for Docker Images for anyone who has struggled to optimize Dockerfiles while keeping them easy to read and maintain. This builder pattern will help anyone who would just like to have the runtime, configuration & application and doesn’t want to have compilers, debuggers, code, build, test logs etc.
