Containers are not magic

I don’t often call out other bloggers, but I do want to mention the great work of Julia Evans. She is a blogger, speaker and programmer. I have really enjoyed her posts, in particular her cartoons.

This post is just to highlight how simple containers really are. Sometimes, they seem like magic. Well, you can create your own container in 15 lines of bash. Go ahead - it won’t take long!

While I am giving kudos, one should also watch Liz Rice on YouTube. She gives a wonderful demo of building your own container using Go. Liz is a security expert, currently working at Acqua Security
