Hosted sessions

Real life scenarios and best practices for using NAV on Docker
LEVEL: 300 - Advanced
Room 5

In this session you will see demos and implementation details of real life scenarios and best practices for using NAV/BC on Docker. The scenarios covered are:

  • Self-service with containers: How to provide containers to developers and product managers through an easy to use web interface
  • Multi-container environments: In some cases you need to run mutiple containers at once and you will see how this can easily be accomplished with Docker compose
  • Automated extension 2.0 builds: Build your 2.0 extension using a CI/CD pipeline can greatly benefit from Docker containers including multi-stage images
  • Using Azure Container Instances: If you just want to run a NAV/BC container without having to worry about the underlying infrastructure, Azure Container Instances are the solution
