Containerized Desktops for Fun & Profit


In the future, all desktop OSes will be containerized.  Today, there's Fedora Silverblue, the first full-featured, containerized, immutable-install desktop.  It's the developer desktop you'll want to use.

We will explain the architecture of Silverblue and how it differs from other desktops.  More importantly, we will share personal experiences and demos to show you how obscure-sounding technologies like Flatpak, package layering, and pet containers help you work on multiple projects on a continually updated workstation without worrying about system updates ruining your day.  You'll see how this is the best desktop for developing cloud applications.  It's here, it works, we use it every day, and I'll show you how you can, too.
