In this tutorial virtualization containers, which can be used to deploy applications and even entire computing environments to any Linux running host machine will be introduced. After an introduction, the Singularity container approach will be presented along with the environment necessary for Singularity container building on Windows, Mac or Linux. We will build a basic Singularity container and run it on your local laptop, and discuss how the container can then be moved to a different resource. We will wrap up with some more advanced container setup and ideas for how to deploy your own applications as a container.

Prerequisite:  basic Linux command and scripting knowledge. Participants should bring a laptop. Windows users should have GIT BashVirtualBox and Vagrant installed, as described at this page. Mac users should have Homebrew, VirtualBox and Vagrant via Homebrew installed as described here
