DockerCon Is Almost Here!

Can you feel it? DockerCon is just days away. There’s still time to register before the one-day, free, virtual extravaganza takes place this Thursday, May 27. Demonstrations, product announcements, company updates — you name it, it’s on the program. All of it focused on modern application delivery in a cloud-native world.

Do DockerCon your way. There’s tons of options. Be sure to catch our line-up of top-notch keynote speakers, which includes Docker CEO Scott Johnston, CTO Justin Cormack, VP of Products Donnie Berkholz, and special guests from GitHub and Orbital Insight.

Check out our recent blog on what not to miss, such as sessions on coding using Docker’s new HTTP APIs, a dive into Docker Dev Environments, tips for navigating a multi-architecture world, and what to do if your container image has more vulnerabilities than you have Twitter followers.

Got questions? Find answers via Live Panels hosted by Docker Captain Bret Fisher, join Peter McKee on two developer focused panels and participate in Hema Ganapathy’s women’s panel. Just put your questions on selected topics in chat, and the team will do their best to answer them. Note: These live streamed Q&A sessions tend to be DevOps focused Continue reading

Video: Docker Build – Working with Docker and VSCode

Tune in as host Peter McKee turns over the controls to Brandon Waterloo for a show-and-tell of how to work with Docker and Visual Studio Code (VSCode). A senior software engineer at Microsoft, Waterloo is the lead developer of the Docker extension and works mainly on the Docker extension for VSCode.

VSCode is a streamlined source-code editor made by Microsoft for Windows, Linux and macOS that’s fine-tuned for building and debugging modern web and cloud applications. The Docker extension makes it easier to build apps that leverage Docker containers, helps scaffold needed files, build Docker images, debug your app inside a container and more.

Follow along as Waterloo builds a basic Python FastAPI app with a Redis backend and a simple hit counter, adding Docker files in order to containerize it. Along the way, he and McKee talk scaffolding, running, debugging, syntax highlighting, intelligent code completion, snippets and the climate benefits of living in Texas (McKee) versus Michigan (Waterloo).

Video: How to Dockerize a Python App with FastAPI

Join host Peter McKee and Python wizard Michael Kennedy for a warts-and-all demo of how to Dockerize a Python app using FastAPI, a popular Python framework. Kennedy is a developer and entrepreneur, and the founder and host of two successful Python podcasts — Talk Python To Me and Python Bytes. He’s also a Python Software Foundation Fellow.

With some skillful back-seat driving by McKee, Kennedy shows how to build a bare-bones web API — in this case one that allows you to ask questions and get answers about movies (director, release date, etc.) — by mashing together a movie service and FastAPI. Next, he shows how to put it into a Docker container, create an app and run it, finally sharing the image on GitHub.

If you’re looking for a scripted, flawless, pre-recorded demo, this is not the one for you! McKee and Kennedy iterate and troubleshoot their way through the process — which makes this a great place to start if you’re new to Dockerizing Python apps. Install scripts, libraries, automation, security, best practices, and a pinch of Python zen — it’s all here. (Duration 1 hour, 10 mins.)

Stack Overflow Survey Reconfirms Developer Love for Docker

The 2020 Stack Overflow Developer Survey confirms what we already knew: there’s a lot of developer love out there for Docker and it is continuing from last year.

Docker was the #1 most wanted platform and #2 most loved platform, according to the survey results published last week. We also ranked as the #3 most popular platform.

That’s no fluke. The results are based on nearly 65,000 people who code. And it’s the second year running we’ve acquitted ourselves so admirably in the annual survey. As we shared with you here last summer, developers ranked Docker as the #1 most wanted platform, #2 most loved platform and #3 most broadly used platform in the 2019 Stack Overflow Developer Survey. Those responses came from nearly 90,000 developers from around the world.

  • This year, in the most wanted platform category, nearly 25 percent of developers expressed interest in developing with Docker, ahead of AWS (20.2 percent), Kubernetes (18.5 percent) and Linux (16.6 percent).
  • In the most loved platform category, 73.6 percent of developers expressed interest in continuing to develop with Docker, trailing only first-placed Linux (76.9 percent), and leading Kubernetes (71.1 percent) and AWS (66. Continue reading
