Supercharged Docker Build with BuildKit

In this talk, we will show the latest advancements in “”docker build”” enabled by the BuildKit project. You can learn about the new additions to the Dockerfile syntax enabled in 18.09.

For example how to:
Enable fast incremental builds with cache mounts
Securely expose secrets during the build process
Forward SSH in order to access private repositories

You’ll also learn how these features were implemented in external BuildKit frontends running sandboxed in regular containers. We will then dive deeper into how the flexibility provided by BuildKit allows anyone to participate in adding new features to the Dockerfile syntax or to build projects without a Dockerfile by writing a custom frontend.
