Name: Dockerizing Workloads for Optimal CI/CD using GitHub Actions: Demos and Best Practices

Date/time: Wednesday, October 4, 2023, 12:20 PM - 1:05 PM Pacific Time


In this presentation, we will explore the power of Dockerizing workloads and optimizing Dockerfiles, with a primary focus on leveraging GitHub Actions for efficient CI/CD in complex scenarios. Showcasing technologies like GitHub Actions, Cloud Run from Google Cloud Platform (GCP), NodeJS, Rust, and Kubernetes, to revolutionize your development and deployment processes. I'll guide you through an engaging session filled with informative demos and best practices. By the end of this talk, you will have a comprehensive understanding of how to harness the potential of Docker and GitHub Actions to streamline your development workflow, ensuring faster, scalable, and more reliable releases.
