How to build Docker images quciker

I’m currently building a docker image and running the container to run some tests in it on for a Python application I’m working on. Currently the Dockerfile copies the files over from the host machine, sets the working directory to those copied files, runs a sudo-apt get and installs pip, and finally runs the tests from The Dockerfile can be seen below.

`FROM ubuntu

ADD . /home/dev/ProjectName

WORKDIR /home/dev/ProjectName

RUN apt-get update && \
    apt-get install -y python3-pip && \
    python3 test

    Docker builds using cached layers if it can. By adding files you have changed it invalidates the cache for all subsequent rules. Put the apt commands first and those will only be run the first time you build. See this blog for more info.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
