Make Containers Small Again!
2024-02-06, 16:45–17:35, B.Con

Your containers do not have to be untrusted or huge, memorized how to run them, but can be managed with much simpler orchestration.

You have containers, but you don't know if you can trust them? Or you have trusted containers, but they are still bulky and contain "junk"? You tried layering deltas, but ended up with with too much complexity overhead? You finally want to run it, but forgot that long command?

Imagine if additionally to what you already can, you could also build containers from only trusted sources in just one push, shrink them tinier than good-old Acme, install them via regular Package Manager, and just run them like a yet another CLI program, so just a systemd can manage them as well.
