Repurposing Container Technologies for Development

11 March 2021 @ Docker Community All-Hands #2

Images, containers, and orchestration are (historically) constructs for deployment. As a result, there’s a huge amount of history, evolution, and tooling surrounding these constructs that’s somewhat irrelevant (and a barrier to entry) for developers. Given Docker’s new focus on developers (who may not have a DevOps background), it’s worth asking how these technologies should be recontextualized and explained for development workflows.
