containerd was born from community desire for a core, standalone runtime to act as a piece of plumbing that applications like Kubernetes could use. It sits between command line tools like Docker, which it was spun out from, and lower-level runtimes like runC or gVisor, which execute the container’s code. This week’s guest is Derek McGowan, a Software Engineer at Docker and a containerd maintainer-d.
Along with the news of the week, Adam and Craig discuss the many Vancouvers.
