Typical containerization stories talk about moving daemons and services to containers and running them in high-available fashion using orchestration tools like OpenShift. There is however value for containers on the other end of the spectrum -- simple command line tools.
I sometimes need to use utility programs I haven't used for months -- to fetch or update non-git source repository, to convert XSL:FO to PDF, to run some small task. I can install them to my workstation via dnf but they will likely come with multiple dependencies which I will keep having installed and keep updating from that point on.
In this session, we will look at writing small Dockerfiles which will allow us to build and run containers with such utilities on demand, instead of polluting our workstation installation.
