Fedora Classroom sessions continue with an introductory session on the use of Buildah to create container images. The general schedule for sessions is availble on the wiki, along with resources and recordings from previous sessions.
Topic: Building container images with Buildah
Containers are becoming the de facto standard for building and distributing applications. Fedora as a modern operating system already supports container use by default. As with every new technology, there are different applications and services available for adopting it. This classroom will explain and demonstrate the Buildah command line tool for building container images and its implementation in Fedora 29.
Here’s the agenda for the Classroom session:
- Quick overview of What is a container image?
- Deep dive into container architecture.
- Container runtimes.
- Building container images from commandline.
- Building container images using Dockerfile.
- Running Buildah within a container.
