Abstract

A lighthearted romp through the recent history of virtual machines, with a particular focus on a feature in recent iterations of the Linux kernel known as Linux Containers, and a tool for working on those containers known as Docker. Docker and containers work together to provide a very lightweight and flexible virtualization framework that could change how libraries configure and deploy server side software. Attendees will learn about virtualization in general and Docker in particular and how they might apply it to their local context.
