We have a WLUG meeting on Sept. 15th at 7PM!
Here are the vitals:
Location: Washburn Labs Rm *323* @7pm (NOTE room 323 not 232!)
Speaker: William Temple
Topic: Container technologies...
The speaker for this meeting is William Temple. Here's what he recently
posted to the list (if you didn't already see it)
Thanks for inviting me to give a talk on containers this Thursday. I'm a
Senior at WPI and spent the last two summers working on container
technologies at Red Hat under the Project Atomic/OpenShift banners.
If you all are interested, topics for discussion could be:
- Containers 101: Introduction & Motivations
- Container Technologies
-- Open Containers Initiative
-- LXC, rkt, and others
- Container Implementation
-- security implications, comparison to Virtual Machines
- Containers in Production (Kubernetes, etc.)
- Containers in Consumer Environments (Flatpak, Snappy, etc.)
If there are any other container-related topics you'd like to hear about,
please just let me know and I can work them in. I'm mostly familiar with
the Docker/OCI & Kubernetes orchestration stack, so I won't be able to go
into technical details about other systems, but can give an overview if
someone else wants to get into the weeds about any other container systems.
I'd like to thank Logan for getting this organized and for William for
being accomidating of our location and schedule change.
As always, there will be refreshments and snacks and we'll head to Tech
See ya there!
I am leery of the allegiances of any politician who refers to their
constituents as "consumers".
