Title: Docker Images without Docker

Docker is popular not only for its runtime, but also for its image format. Many organizations support Docker images, but don't run Docker, instead relying upon other container technologies. As a result, Apcera implements a Docker Registry API-compatible client to support Docker image pull. And, we have to maintain compatibility not only with the Docker Hub, but also Quay, Docker private registries, and other supported image registries. This talk will delve into the structure of Docker's image format and registry API, as well as enumerate some of the challenges engineers and developers face to support Docker image pull.
