Talk 3: Buildkit - new build toolkit under the Moby project
Tonis Tiigi will give a preview of a new builder toolkit project under the Moby umbrella that is planned to become new architecture supporting "docker build" feature. He'll show how to use Go client package to get low-level access to new features and how the toolkit can be used for other workflows than just building Docker images.
Tonis Tiigi is a software engineer at Docker and a maintainer of Moby Core.
