a few related links: 1. "bocker" ("docker in 100 lines of bash"): 2. containers in 500 lines of code:

This is great! One question I always have is if the idea behind containers it to isolate processes to reduce entropy, then how do the processes actually communicate? Not asking you to answer, but just a suggestion of a topic others might also be interested in.

good question! for servers: container processes are just connected to the internet in basically the same way as any other webserver, so they can respond to network requests. does that help?

Weird. In the weeds. Maybe scratching at the veneer here on something I'm not terribly familiar with... but Python Environments? When I have used them they seem very very container like. So how adjacent is it?

it's definitely conceptually related! but the thing that makes virtualenv (Python environments) work is basically just changing your PATH environment variable which is a lot simpler than what we do to isolate containers (give them their whole own separate filesystem)

I see you listed Fargate and Kata as lightweight VMS. Can I safely add Firecracker VMs to the list?

Hi, , would it be okay if I'd use this image as part of a future course? I'd link back to the source and give you credit for it, of course.

Do it, and not just for newbies! I've been using *nix for decades and I have "I didn't know that!" moments on most of these posts.
