Open Container Initiative (OCI) Certification Program - Rob Dolin, Microsoft & Jeff Borek, IBM

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over 150 engineers from companies from Amazon to VMWare are participating in a cross-industry, open effort to standardize interoperable software shipping containers.  The heart of this effort is the Open Container Initiative (OCI) https://www.opencontainers.org/, a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project applying techniques and best practices from open source communities to development of open standards/specifications for container runtime (https://github.com/opencontainers/runtime-spec) and container image format (https://github.com/opencontainers/image-spec) as well as developing a container runtime reference implementation (https://github.com/opencontainers/runc) and tools for testing and certification (https://github.com/opencontainers/ocitools/)

This session will include demos of running open source code, info on how you can contribute by submitting a pull request to the specs and/or code, the public availability of the first phase of the OCI Certification Program, factors to consider if becoming OCI-certified makes sense for your container project, how to get your container project OCI-certified, and how you might be able to gain interoperability benefits from OCI-certified solutions.
