A Greybeard's Worst Nightmare
How Containers and Kubernetes re-defined the GNU/Linux Operating System.

Note: WE ARE MEETING AT TWO SIGMA!! We'll need names, and you will need IDs. RSVP will open Wednesday June 6th, 2018, 4:30pm.

Containers and Kubernetes with the concepts of application-centric packaging, process isolation through Linux containers, and immutable infrastructure are shaking up the core traditions of today's GNU/Linux operating systems. We are challenging assumptions and approaches derived from the past 40+ years of UNIX tradition. The Linux distribution as we know it, is morphing into new concept of containerized, multi-instance, multi-user applications, which can be deployed in scale-out environments. In this session, we'll assess this new OS environment and take a look at the consequences this new OS model has.

Join us afterwards at the Cupping Room Cafe where we'll continue the discussion over drinks and/or food. The Cupping Room Cafe is located at 359 W Broadway, two blocks from the venue.
