Name: Docker Rocks in Node.js, 2023 Ed.

Date/time: Wednesday, October 4, 2023, 1:10 PM - 1:55 PM Pacific Time


The 2023 update to my popular DockerCon talk on all the best Node.js tips and strategies for Docker tooling. This year, new additions to my talk include adding the Node.js Wolfi image to my base image recommendation list (Zero CVEs!), Docker Scout image analysis for Node.js, and a Compose Sync setup for blazing-fast development. I’ll also show off the new docker init for new Node.js projects. For those who are not new to Node.js Dockerfiles, I’ll walk through some recent advancements in Dockerfile commands and frontends that are helpful for Node.js projects. As in previous editions of this talk, I’ll also cover process initialization (do we need init?) and graceful shutdown concerns with Node.js. I’ll show you how to enhance your Dockerfiles with multistage builds, and we’ll wrap up with some GitHub Actions of Docker builds for Node.js
