Memory address in python!

Let us understand what is happening to the memory address when you are working with built-in objects like (int, str, bool, lists, dictionaries, set).

Minimal containers for your Python application

About Mircea Cosbuc [4]:

I am a back-end developer turned Dev Ops. I spent most of my development years writing Python, which might explain the transition.


Your Python application is running in a container, great! What can you do now to make this container as small as possible and why would you even bother? We're going to discuss the need of creating the smallest container image possible, observe some methods to achieve it and reflect on whether the journey was worth it.
