New Dockercast Episode with Docker Captain, Nirmal Mehta

In case you missed it, we recently launched Dockercast, the official Docker Podcast including all the DockerCon 2016 sessions available as podcast episodes. In this podcast I catch up with Nirmal Mehta at Booz Allen Hamilton.  Nirmal has been a big part of the Docker community and is also a Docker Captain.

Avi discusses how Shippable has focused on making the delivery pipeline easier for developers. We also discuss some anti-patterns he calls Frankenstein Continuous Integration (CI) where, although Jenkins is awesome, the glue to put a robust CI system together can be reasonably complex. What Shippable tried to do is abstract away some of those complexities for developers.  We end up talking about different Docker patterns Shippable Continue reading…
