Linux Containers 2024

Bioinformatics room (CRG Training centre)
This course is designed to teach the basics of everyday Linux Containers usage. Participants will learn what Linux Containers are and why they are relevant to today's scientific practice. They will learn hands-on Docker, the most popular container technology, and by the end of the course, they should be able to build simple container images by themselves. They will also be introduced to Singularity/Apptainer, a more suitable container software for HPC environments.
Topics that are going to be addressed:
  • Linux
  • Containers
  • Docker
  • Singularity
  • Apptainer

What NOT to expect:

  • We will not learn about Linux command line or Bash shell. Participants should be already familiar with these concepts.
  • We will not cover advanced container approaches (Docker compose) or container orchestrators such as Docker Swarm or Kubernetes.
