Tomek Kalinowski

In this presentation Tomek Kalinowski introduces the Audience to the idea of “Library Operating System” and its modern extension - The Unikernel.

In short unikernel is another way of packaging and deploying code in which everything, including operating system, is tailored to serve your code’s single purpose (like displaying random cat pictures).

We'll try to answer the questions:
- Why and when it can be useful?
- Is this reusable? Interoperable?
- How we can leverage virtualization?

And last, but not least, is this the answer for inevitable coming of our Lord and Savior FPGA?
