Rocket is a simple daemon-free tool that enables users to run containerized apps on their systems free of host dependencies. Containers running under rocket execute like regular processes and can be managed using existing process management tools like upstart, systemd, runit and etc.

Rocket is also an implementation of the “App Container spec,” which defines how to define and build containerized applications using tooling like tar and PGP, and then host these files easily using standard protocols like HTTP. The goal of the spec is to enable independent and creative implementations of container runtimes and build tools.

This presentation will give an overview of the App Container spec and why the spec is important to the Mesos community. This session invites attendees to learn how they work and how to get involved.
