If you pay attention to tech news at all, you're probably hearing a lot about Linux containers. In this talk, we'll take a look at what's behind the hype and dive into what containers are really good for, what they are, and the best ways to start getting your feet wet where it makes sense to use containers. This will include a look at Atomic Host, an opinionated take on Fedora, CentOS, or Red Hat Enterprise Linux designed strictly to run Linux containers and help organizations focus on applications inside the container.

Joe Brockmeier is a long-time participant in open source projects and former technology journalist. Brockmeier has worked as the openSUSE Community Manager, is an Apache Software Foundation (ASF) member, and participates heavily in the Fedora Cloud Working Group. Brockmeier works for Red Hat as a senior evangelist for Linux & containers.
