While much of the talk and excitement around containers have moved to higher layers like Kubernetes and FaaS/serverless, container runtimes are still the driving force that underpins many of these technologies. When applications are deployed to platforms such as Docker, Kubernetes, Cloud Foundry, and many of today's serverless platforms, it is container runtimes at the bottom of the stack running and managing the lifecycle of these container-packaged applications.

How did we get from the burst of excitement around the open source Docker engine in 2014 to the CNCF landscape of today, featuring a myriad of options for interacting, orchestrating, and building containers?

In this talk, we'll look at the importance of the OCI and the CNCF, including the requisite standards and projects that have kept the container runtime community on the same page and working together even as many competitors as both vendors and implementers. We'll also see how work continues in these critical areas in 2019 and beyond to build a stable basis for future innovations in containers.
