Little Container Book

Introduction to Podman and Buildah

About the Book

Little Container Book offers a straightforward introduction to the complex topic of containers. It's written for regular Linux users, who would like to understand the advantages of using containers, learn the basics of building and managing containers, and put containers to practical uses. The only assumption the book makes is that you have a working knowledge of Linux and feel comfortable using the command line. The book covers two main tools for working with containers: Podman and Buildah.
