What is a container? Why are they catching on? In this introductory tutorial, we’ll explore how to run a container on your laptop, in addition to answering these questions.

We’ll look at how to build a container and the importance of building your own or using trusted containers. We’ll look at recent studies on the health of “public registries”, discuss what they are, and how you can easily avoid their security risks with a bit of pragmatism.

After that, we’ll get our hands dirty looking at the tools required to build and run containers at a small scale. We’ll answer questions like why do container deployments often grow to such a large scale, and what changes about the way we should run them when looking at a large scale? We’ll explore the importance of automation, using the story of Knight Capital as a cautionary tale.

We’ll look at common architectures, work through some tutorials for Docker and Kubernetes on katacoda, and map out the dizzying landscape that is the CNCF Landscape. The goal of this tutorial is to introduce you to containers if you’re new to the scene and fill in gaps-in-knowledge for veterans of the container ecosystem.
