Introduction to Apptainer/Singularity: Instructor Notes

The main course includes only the first 8 episodes The bonus episode 9 “Building and deploying an Apptainer container to Github Packages” is optional, also to avoid circular dependencies with Git and CI/CD.

Some more advanced material is interspersed throughout the episodes, normally as a Tip (callout box with the Pin logo). This helps understanding how containers and Apptainer work, but are not strictly necessary for the basic use of Apptainer. Future releases may separate this out in highlighted sections with a dedicated callout type to allow both a peruse of the course for a deeper understanding and a quick run through to learn just the bare minimum.
