I am in VT test team, not familiar with containers. But it is a trend that vms and containers are managed in the same management framework. And kubevirt project is one way for this. Recently we are also testing kubevirt. So understanding how container images are built and work helps to grow in this area.
Goal for this Hackweek
This project is to find out: - how to build a base container image from scratch - how to build new container imges based on base, eg kubevirt containers based on sle15sp3 base
