Yes, I think this is a good idea.
Intro to Containers could definitely take up a day. Red Hat offers a 2
hour lab at each Red Hat summit, that really digs deap into container
security. It is self guided and most students really like it.
Scott McCarty has a 7/8 Self Paced labs that dig deep into containers.

I think this mail list is a perfect place to at the very least start up
the discussion. Unfortunately the folks with probably the best answers
are at conferences and/or are doing the PTO thing so they might not
check in for a bit. It would be good to hear from Scott McCarty, Dan
Walsh and William Henry who've done a fair amount of presentations at
Just off the top of my head:
o What are Containers
o The container applications
o Quick intro to Buildah
o Deeper intro to Podman (Podman uses Buildah when it does `podman
o Introduction to Dockerfiles
o Building a Container image
o Touch on Docker and OCI formats
o Building a container
o Intro to container registries
o Build your own registry
o Pulling and Pushing to a Container Registry
o Rootless Podman
o Security features of Podman
At least a start there. For a little deeper dive you could check out
Intro and Rootless tutorials for Podman
o Replacing Docker with Podman Demo -
o Security Demo -
- Slides from a few of the talks that
might prove useful.
That should get you going. Feel free to re-ping here or hit me up
directly if you'd like,
