Next MeetUp - January, 19th 2021 - 4pm GMT

Happy New Year and next meetup announcement

We hope that you all had a good start into the new year - the bad news is that we will have to run another meetup virtually, the good news is, we have 2 very exciting talks lined up.

The meeting details in short:

  • Date: 19.01.2021
  • Time: 4:00-5:30 pm GMT
  • Location: Virtually (link to be shared)

Talk 1: Secure Continuous Delivery with Podman, Buildah, Skopeo and UBI

A hands-on demonstration of lessons learned migrating from other container build tools to the RHEL container ecosystem. We aim to explore a set of command-line tools that are able to operate without a container daemon, and namely: Buildah, Podman, Quay and Skopeo.

We will discuss a new set of open-source Container Management Tools starting from a hands-on demonstration. In a nutshell, Buildah builds, Podman runs, Skopeo transfers container images and Quay provides private and public container registries.

Moreover, we will take a look at best practices for building images that can easily be integrated into a CI/CD Pipeline and vulnerability scanning with Clair, thus replacing previous build tools in workflows.

Understand the impact of SELinux, namespaces and cgroups. Move from docker-compose to Podman pods. Build container images for OpenShift Container Platform.

Talk 2: What’s new in OpenShift 4.7?

Never change a winning team, right? Ian ‘Uther’ Lawson will give a quick update on the latest features within the latest OpenShift release. The format will be similar to the first, we will have a quick run through the latest features and then open the floor for questions - and hopefully answers :)
