    Allan is a long-time Linux enthusiast and user across many devices and platforms, using Linux variants since some time in the 90s. Whilst his career began with Software Development, it's progressed through various disciplines including security, quality, infrastructure, automation, and systems. Allan's focus has been influenced by his time in various businesses, coming to the realisation that most challenges we all face really aren't technical in nature.


Container images come in all shapes and sizes, with some being more useful then others. It's easy to have a one-size-fits-all approach to building images, but there are benefits to tailor making them for each appropriate situation. Images being deployed probably shouldn't be massive, nor should they include development tools, and it's probably unnecessary to run deployed integrations in a development environment. One approach for specifying images is to ask a few questions, naming appropriately along the way. Linux Australia: YouTube:
