Supercharging Your Docker Builds with Skaffold and Kaniko

Using Kubernetes for a CI/CD system is a perfect fit, but it’s common to bump up against problems when building container images. Most often, we still rely on Docker for image building inside the cluster, which can be inefficient and doesn’t scale well. To improve the security, performance and stability of our CI/CD tool, Jenkins X, we opted to use Skaffold and Kaniko to build our images in a more Kubernetes-native way.

In this session, we will first help you understand the reasons for choosing Skaffold and Kaniko. Getting into the guts of our own implementation in Jenkins X, we’ll talk about using Skaffold as our build proxy, delegating Docker builds to Kaniko and the ability to switch out Kaniko for a cloud provider native builder such as Google Cloud Builder. Finally, you’ll learn how to be up and running with Skaffold and Kaniko in no time, either with Jenkins X or on your own.
