Containers are a relatively new technology that is popular for server and cloud applications. Embedded applications can benefit from this technology by providing a reliable way to deploy applications and it’s dependencies. Further, it allows you to have independent development and release cycles of different parts of your system. Qt applications, even those with a UI, can run inside a container. In this session, we will see what the advantage of such an approach is and how we can work-around some issues. We will also see how to use 3D acceleration and other hardware features from a containerized application. This hardware features can be used with similar or equal performance as “traditional” monolithic approaches.
