Writing your own container in Python!

Shubham Sharma (~shubham1172)




"What I cannot create, I do not understand" - Richard Feynman

Containers are ubiquitous. We use container software like Dockers and Linux Containers (LXC) every day without knowing what goes inside that black box. In this talk, we will explore the principles of containerization and how it functions in the Linux ecosystem. We will build a mini container in Python on top of Linux. We will learn how modern containers function and how we can realize the same functionalities in our mini container.


Some familiarity with containers and Linux.
