Topics for a talk on OCI-based Linux distros?

Hey all,

Where I work we host a fortnightly session we call “Safaris” in which we explore various topics; and since I’ve been the only one running an OCI-based distro I would really like to host one on the current state of Atomic and other OCI-based distros.

So far I have:

  • Explaining the high-level concepts of ostree
  • Sprinting through some Docker fundamentals (more of a refresher than new information)
  • Why you’d want to use it, and why you should use it
  • Anticipating the “why not NixOS” question
  • Running through the various Atomic distros, the various UBlue variants & SUSE’s MicroOS (I’m not aware of any others)
  • My day-to-day workflow, how I manage my containerfiles, my own OS image fork etc
  • And then open it up to questions

Is there anything that Atomic users wish they knew before they started? Or think it would be good to run through? The demographic is technical people, most if not all Linux users; so the only limitation is time (limited to around 45m-1h with some Q&A after, no hard limit)

This talk would also be made available after the fact, so when it is I’ll publish it back here :smile:

(also apologies if this is the wrong place to post)
