Cloud Native + Kubernetes Edinburgh Meetup - Power up with Podman (slides)

Tonight I returned to the Cloud Native + Kubernetes (K8S) Edinburgh meetup to share new content with my technical friends there in Scotland.  This is a really fun group, active and engaged with both questions and discussions about my content.

Exactly what I'm looking for in a meetup!

Attendees here are knowledgeable as they are often active in their daily jobs with the various technologies that a meetup covers. I shared a fun session on how to get started with Podman, a fully open source OCI compliant container tool for working with container images in a developer environment.

This was a talk my team has given previously, but we continue to perfect it by sharing with diverse audiences. Below are the slides and abstract from my talk.

Tonight we ran over my time slot due to the discussions around docker, open source and why Podman was needed. Couldn't have gone better! Here are the slides for those that want to explore it further:


Power up with Podman

Curious about containers beyond Docker? There’s a new generation of containers on the scene, Podman! Supporting secure, rootless containers for Kubernetes microservices, it was designed and built with the cloud in mind. Benefitting from the lessons learned out in the open from Docker, this next generation of containers will quickly become a trusted daily driver in your dev workflow. Covering what you need to know as an end-user from the UI to the backend, sharing a real world use case leveraging Podman for open source observability workshops https://o11y-workshops.gitlab.io. Attendees will learn how Podman and the adorable seal mascots Caitlín, Maighréad and Róisín can transform their local development!

Was great seeing some return attendees from my previous sessions and meeting the new members. Thanks to all who turned up!
