I recently got the opportunity to talk with the amazing Josh Long on his podcast, Bootiful Podcast. It was a great time and a fun conversation. We started from the beginning and talked about all things containers, Docker, Buildpacks, Paketo, and of course, Spring & Native Images.
If you're new to buildpacks or looking to give them a test run, this is a great place to start. We covered a lot of the concepts and questions people frequently ask. It was also great to talk about some of the improvements that we've recently added into the Java buildpack. For example, we recently added support for UPX compression of native images and the ability to use Tilt with buildpacks for microservice development.
Please check it out! You won't be disappointed. Josh is always entertaining, and hopefully you'll come away having learned something new.
