Ubuntu has built-in support for LXD system containers. In this workshop, we learn how to setup and use them, no prior experience required.

LXD system containers are similar to virtual machines but are much more lightweight. Ubuntu, since version 16.04, has built-in the necessary support for LXD system containers. In this workshop we see how to properly setup LXD on our system. Then, we learn how to use LXD and manage the containers. We walk through common practical use-cases, including how to run X11 applications from within a container, how to use containers as a learning tool and how to setup a server with services in separate containers.
