Sponsor Spotlight: Check Out These 4 Engaging Talks at DockerCon 2022

Docker's ukraine-colored ship sails the open seas.

DockerCon 2022 is fast approaching, and we’re thrilled to feature some of cloud computing’s biggest names on stage May 10th. Sponsors have contributed massively to our success, and we’re excited to have them help you along your development journey. Our own Ira Casteel, Senior Product Marketing Manager – Partners and Alliances, explains: 

“Docker continuously strives to provide developers with solutions that make their jobs easier and simplify complexities. Our Partners help make this a reality, working with us to remove the busy work and integrate tools, so developers can focus on innovation and spend less time doing everything else.”

That said, here are some informative sponsor talks worth sinking your teeth into — and how to view them.

1) Master the Container Security Model

Presented by Sysdig – 1:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. EDT, within #Learn

If there’s one thing Sysdig’s Guillermo Palacio Oto champions, it’s container security. Follow along as Guillermo shares his essential best practices and tips for galvanizing your containers and image builds. You’ll learn about optimizing your security posture — while understanding how privilege escalation, credential leaks, unused packages, and large attack surfaces can pose risks.

Sysdig shares that 75% of container images contain vulnerabilities deemed either “critical” or “high risk,” but there’s good news: these vulnerabilities are patchable and preventable. Tune in to discover the critical steps you should take to stop these vulnerabilities in their tracks.

2) End-to-End AI Developer Journey with Containerized Assets Using Intel

Presented by Intel – 1:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. EDT, within #Excel

As a Cloud Software Architect at Intel, Vaghesh Patel has been integral to bringing Intel’s DevCatalog, DevCloud, and Distribution of OpenVINO Toolkit to backend developers. Vaghesh will divulge his tricks of the trade to download containerized assets, customize and build AI applications, then deploy them atop capable hardware.

You’ll also discover how these user-friendly platforms and workflows help optimize painstaking development processes. Lastly, Vaghesh will share how to integrate AI model training with leading frameworks — like TensorFlow and PyTorch. If you’re an AI engineer who values tackling projects efficiently and without friction, you won’t want to miss this one!

3) Creating Production-Ready Containers: What Devs Need to Know to Secure Their Containers

Presented by Slim.ai – 2:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EDT, within #Discover

The team at Slim.ai has long made it their mission to simplify the process of choosing the right Docker container for your projects. They’ve also focused heavily on promoting development best practices, container discovery, and build transparency. In this engaging talk, Technical Staffer Evan Harris will help you solve the mystery behind deploying containerized apps in production — a tricky process for most developers.

Follow along with Evan’s demo as he discusses deployment best practices, optimal image sizing, build speed, and the importance of security. While no approach is perfect, Harris will share how multiple approaches to container hardening stack up against one another. By understanding these tradeoffs, you’ll be much better equipped to ship confidently, efficiently, and securely.

4) How to Find the Best Security Workflow that Actually Works for Your Team

Presented by Snyk – 4:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. EDT, within #Learn

Despite security’s crucial role in containerized development, there’s no denying how challenging or confusing it is for teams to implement. Everyone has their own approach, and organizations are constantly looking to balance development pace with security. How do we tackle this problem?

Dive in as Snyk Product Manager, Hadar Mutai, analyzes these common paint points — helping you develop secure, performant applications in a Docker environment. Hadar will show you how to transform the security conversation from intimidating to exciting. You and your teams will benefit greatly from stronger security, and adhering to best practices will help boost overall application build quality.
