Best practices for Docker in production

Episode #323, published Sat, Jul 3, 2021, recorded Mon, Jun 14, 2021

You've got your Python API or app running in a Docker container. Great! Are you ready to ship it to that hosted cluster service and head off to production? Not so fast. Have you considered how you'll manage evolving dependencies and addressing security updates over time? Not just for the base OS but for installed packages? How about your pip installed dependencies? Are you running as root? If you don't know, the answer is yes.

We'll discuss these issues and many more with Itamar Turner-Trauring on this episode.
