The DigitalOcean Community Weekly: DNS, Docker, K8s Canary Deployments, & More

Welcome to the second edition of The DOCOM Weekly, your weekly digest featuring some of the best content published in and around the DigitalOcean Community.

I’m Lisa, a member on the Developer Education team, and I’m excited about sharing knowledge throughout the developer community. Today’s roundup includes DNS management, speeding up Docker workflows, canary deployments with Istio and Kubernetes, and more!

We’ll begin with our featured posts from the past week on the DigitalOcean Community:
