Docker Recap of 2023

Download MP3
Bret and Nirmal are joined by Michael Irwin, DevRel at Docker, to talk about all the products and features Docker shipped in 2023, and what's coming in early 2024.

Michael has been on this show many times as a Docker Captain and now as a Docker employee, and it's always great to dig into the details of the products with someone who's been using them for so many years as an end-user and now staff at Docker.

Docker did some big things in 2023, but they also shipped some smaller features that we will help you catch up on in this episode.

The live recording of the complete show from December 28, 2023 is on YouTube (Ep. #247)
