SAN19-506 - BuildKit: A next generation image builder toolkit

Session Abstract

BuildKit solves many problems of "docker build", instead of replace the "docker build", it evolves to be an independent project but still under the umbrella of moby.

In this presentation, I am going to talk the key issues that BuildKit addresses, such as concurrent dependency resolution, much faster image build with cache import/output, and how to avoid to leak credential while still allow accessing private assets.

You will see how the BuildKit could be used in conjunction with docker, particularly, we will see how BuildKit supports multi-arch image build for ARM platform, and the Docker as well. Actually, the cutting-edge innovation of "docker buildx" is right based on BuildKit, besides, couple of demo on top of ARM platform will be given during the session.

Some performance data will be given as well to compare with traditional "docker build".
