To RSPV for the event on Meetup.

An introduction to containers on Linux using LXC. We will look at what containers are as a concept, and why they are useful.

The features which enable containers are actually part of the Linux Kernel and you use Userland tools like LXC, for the implementation. Although there are many kernel features used to create containment the three keys features are namescapes, cgroups, and chroots.

Live demo of LXC after talk.
