Docker at Devoxx France and the U.K.

As Docker is a full-remote company, we have employees scattered across the Americas and Europe. We’re building tools to help developers all over the world build software better. As developers, we know that to do this well, we need to be actively involved in the developer community so we encourage our engineers to speak at local conferences.

Some of Docker’s French Engineers spoke at Devoxx France this year. The event was held at the Palais des Congrés in Paris from 29 September to 1 October. Devoxx France is the biggest developer conference in France with, before pandemic restrictions, 3000 attendees and 240 talks and hands-on labs each year. The conference covers topics from Java and its ecosystem, to the Web, Big Data, IoT, Cloud computing and Software architecture.

Guillaume Lours presented a talk with Jérémie Drouet about Dockerfile best practices that you can watch (in French) below. During this session they split a monolith application defined by a single Dockerfile to a microservices stack by applying Dockerfile improvements such as order layers, and using multistage builds.

Yves Brissaud presented a talk about building and using Cloud Native Application Bundles (CNAB) using Porter. You can watch his talk (in French) below and browse the slides in English. This talk starts with a short definition of Cloud Native and why Application Bundles can help us to improve application packaging and deployment. Two demos of CNAB using Porter were shown. You can find all the materials to reproduce them here.

More recently, Devoxx UK took place between the 1st and the 3th of November. A hybrid format for the conference was used with both in-person and online sessions and audience.

Guillaume Lours was part of the lineup to show Docker Dev Environments in action. This presentation shows you how to create a Dev Environment from a simple copy/paste of a Git repository URL, how you use Dev Envs to manage PR review or test the work in progress of your teammates. The slide deck is available here and the video of the talk should be available soon in the Devoxx Youtube channel.

If you’d like to help us build tools that developers love, take a look at our careers page where we have a lot of open positions.
