    Best of DevOps 2023

    Best of DevOps 2023

    Bret and Nirmal are joined by Melissa McKay, Developer Advocate at JFrog and Docker Captain, to discuss the best and worst of 2023.
    We recorded this episode in December of 2023 where we talked through our favorite tools. Whether a DevOps oriented tool or not, it just might be the things we like to use on containers and in Cloud Native DevOps. This is a fun episode of three friends talking about what they love. And I sometimes I think these are the best shows because we didn't plan them out. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did recording it.

    Faster Dev Feedback and Previews with Livecycle

    Faster Dev Feedback and Previews with Livecycle

    Bret is joined by Matan Mishan & Roy Razon of Livecycle to discuss developer platforms and how to improve developer collaboration and speeding up feedback and previews.
    We talk about the various delays encountered in pull requests due to feedback processes, and how Lifecycle's tools aim to shorten this feedback loop in Docker Desktop, local CLI with Preevy, and automated CI workflows. I like how Lifecycle provides multiple locations and ways to get access to people in the preview environments that really lets you just fit the different parts of the tool into your workflow, as opposed to one way to do everything. It's great for getting feedback quickly during the PR process, rather than making people set up their own environments to test their changes. I also liked their ideas around how the feedback loops can be improved.
    This episode contains great demos so be sure to also check out the live recording of the complete show from December 21, 2023 on YouTube (Ep. #246).

    Docker Recap of 2023

    Docker Recap of 2023

    Bret and Nirmal are joined by Michael Irwin, DevRel at Docker, to talk about all the products and features Docker shipped in 2023, and what's coming in early 2024.
    Michael has been on this show many times as a Docker Captain and now as a Docker employee, and it's always great to dig into the details of the products with someone who's been using them for so many years as an end-user and now staff at Docker.
    Docker did some big things in 2023, but they also shipped some smaller features that we will help you catch up on in this episode.

    Tailscale Everything

    Tailscale Everything

    Bret is joined by Alex Kretzschmar to talk about Tailscale, a universal VPN that connects teams, devices, and development environments for easy access to remote resources.
    Alex and I talk about projects he's worked on in containers over the years and then we quickly get into Tailscale and talking about why he joined the team there.
    Tailscale is one of those tools that's hard to put down. I've used it for years to connect my personal devices to my home server lab when I'm traveling or servers I might have on the internet that I run temporarily. It connects them all together in a seamless VPN. The product itself comes up a lot in our Discord server when people are talking about needing some secure remote access to something anywhere in the world.
    Tailscale keeps adding more and more features, I can't really keep up, so we had Alex on the show to talk about all the new stuff, including a client for Apple TV, which at first, I didn't quite understand why, but now it totally makes sense; and a Kubernetes operator that does some slick things around connecting engineers on their local machines to clusters. I found Alex at the Tailscale booth at KubeCon this year and invited him on the show to talk about this relatively new yet ubiquitous-feeling product.

    Dockerfiles have versions?

    Dockerfiles have versions?

    I break down why Dockerfile frontends exist and how Docker's build engine "BuildKit" is giving us updated Dockerfile features.
    The TL;DR of this podcast is to add this to your Dockerfiles as the first line, always and forever.
    # syntax=docker/dockerfile:1It'll ensure your Dockerfile will have access to the latest v1.x features of the "Dockerfile frontend" feature of BuildKit.★Topics★My newsletter on Dockerfile frontends (including links and references)Creators & Guests

    Dagger: CI of the Future?

    Dagger: CI of the Future?

    Application delivery doesn’t have to suck. Bret and Nirmal are joined by Solomon Hykes, the founder or Docker, to talk about Dagger and their application delivery-as-code that runs anywhere.

    💥 This episode is brought to you by our valued sponsor and friends at CAST AI! 💥CAST AI is an all-in-one Kubernetes cost optimization and automation platform that achieves over 60% average compute cost savings without months of onboarding.

    Solomon started Dagger after he left Docker in 2018 with a few other Docker VPs, including Sam Alba and Andrea Lusardi.
    Dagger is an innovative startup aimed at simplifying and revolutionizing DevOps automation and software delivery. Created to address Docker's unattended gaps, Dagger streamlines software building, testing, and deployment, exhibiting immense growth potential and wide applications in fostering software ecosystems.
    For a few years now, they've been publicly iterating on the idea of a programmable and portable automation system for software building, testing, and deploying.
    In this episode, they cover many topics around Docker and Dagger. I've been convinced that I need to start trying out Dagger in my projects.
