The next Docker Athens event is here. This time we will gather up at Yodeck, 1 Likourgou Street, 2nd Floor Athens. The topic of discussion will be diving into advanced techniques and best practices for building Docker images.

Docker Athens Meetup: Abusing Docker builds with BuildKit

First we will dive into advanced techniques that can help us build images faster, with optimized caching. Next, we will go over some of the best practises for building containers while taking advantage most of the capabilities they offer, including slim images, build caching and multi-stage builds.
