Next Generation Container Runtimes

Note: WE ARE MEETING AT TWO SIGMA!! We'll need names, and you will need IDs. RSVP will open Tuesday November 13th, 2018, 4:30pm. Doors will open at 6pm.

This talk will introduce alternative container runtimes like CRI-O, Buildah, Podman and Skopeo. Dan will cover why Red Hat built these tools, what they are used for and give a full demonstration on using them.

The talk will concentrate on the additional usability and security provided by the new container runtimes.

There will be plenty of time for questions!


Join us afterwards at the Cupping Room Cafe where we'll continue the discussion over drinks and/or food. The Cupping Room Cafe is located at 359 W Broadway, two blocks from the venue.
