I’m really amazed at how easy creating the container was. It took only 11 lines to spin up a Linux environment on my own machine. The majority of the commands (7 of the 11) are simply adding the files and dependencies. I’m also pretty shocked that I didn’t have to do anything to my Python script to get this to work. I had assumed I would need to do something but, I didn’t. Very cool! Also, by using the following command while my Python script is running, I see that this is only taking up 1.3 GB!
