The Open Container Initiative was formed as a joint effort by leaders in the container ecosystem to create a stable industry standard for containers image and runtime specifications. Recently, the OCI runtime and image specifications hit version 1.0. The image spec defines a standard container image format that can be executed by runtimes conforming to the open runtime specification, aiming to make container images truly portable.
In this talk, Brandon Philips, CTO at CoreOS, will discuss the implications of a stable industry standard for future application container development, the importance of community buy-in to fully reap the benefits of a collaborative and open system, and the next steps for the community standards.
The audience should be comfortable with the various container image and runtime specifications.
* Why standards are needed in the container ecosystem
* What elements the standards are relevant to
* What’s next for the OCI specifications
