As word about unikernels spreads, more people are trying to learn about this new approach to programming the cloud and embedded devices. Since information is spread across multiple sites, it can be tricky to know where to get an overview and how to get started quickly. So to help with this, there's a new community website at!
The community site aims to collate information about the various projects and provide a focal point for early adopters to understand more about the technology and become involved in the projects themselves.
Over time, it will also become a gathering place for common infrastructure to form and be shared across projects. Early examples of this include the scripts for booting on Amazon EC2, which began with MirageOS contributors but were used and improved by Rump Kernel contributors. Continuing to work together to make such advances will ease the process of bringing in new users and contributors across all the projects.
In this talk, I will:
Give examples of how cross-collaboration has advanced different projects

Discuss infrastructure and tooling needs that will help all projects
Encourage everyone to contribute!

  25. 25. What next? @amirmc Better design and some kind of branding :) Discuss common needs and share learning
 (e.g. upcoming HaLVM and Rumprun) Joint events e.g unikernel install parties? Shared infrastructure for projects Whatever else the community of unikernel developers needs.
