About this event

Come join us as we kick off North Alabama's first Docker User Group! Pat Viafore, co-organizer of, will be presenting. Lunch will be provided thanks to our sponsor, ADTRAN. Please RSVP if you plan to join us.

What exactly is Docker? Is it related to runC? And what about Containerd. What is Kata and rkt? What about LXD, LXC, OCI and MKL? (Alright, I made that last one up). Point is, there are a lot of terms when we talk about containerization, and it's not clear where the boundaries lie. Come listen to this talk, where we start with looking at how to piece together the jigsaw puzzle that is containerization.
