Build Docker Containers For Python Apps Like A Pro

July 17, 2020

Python apps go great with containers. Docker, Kubernetes, Cloudfoundry, Public Cloud, Private Cloud, they're all awesome places to run your containers. But getting your apps into containers is a tricky business, particularly if you have tens or hundreds of apps to manage, and maintain. Your containers have to be secure, reproducible, and easy to rebuild when vulnerabilities strike or upgrades are required. Enter Cloud Native Buildpacks, the brand-new (yet 10-year-old) technology developed by industry legends like Heroku, Google, and Cloudfoundry. With buildpacks, your Python apps are automatically built into secure, toughened containers that you can run anywhere and update anytime (including locally on your computer). All without a single line of Dockerfile! In this short video, Ben Wilcock (@benbravo73) will show you how to use the `pack` command-line tool to containerize your Python application in seconds.
