We Had a Whale of a Time at LinuxCon and ContainerCon!

Docker and the Docker team made quite a splash in Seattle last week at LinuxConContainerCon and all of the other co-located events!


Below are some of the Docker team’s favorite memories from the week.


Recap: Docker 1.8 Online Meetup Series

notaryMissed our three-part series of Docker Online Meetups on the Docker 1.8 release?

Don’t worry! We recorded each session and posted the videos for you to watch.


Our series of Docker Online Meetups on the Docker 1.8 release started with Core Maintainer David Calavera presenting an overview of the new features and upgrades available in this release. Sr. Software Engineer David Lawrence then provided a comprehensive look at Docker Content Trust, the system powering image signing.


No More Excuses! Five Reasons to Submit a Proposal for DockerCon Europe 2015

We’ve all been there—you consider speaking at an industry conference, but then talk yourself out of it. You think, “I’m not an expert, why would someone want to listen to me?” Give yourself the credit you deserve: you know more than you think you do.

Speaking at DockerCon Europe 2015 is a great way to establish yourself in the community, learn, and connect with your peers! If you’re still not convinced, read on for five reasons to submit your speaking proposal before September 1, 2015.  


Webinar FAQ: The Value of Docker Support and Subscription

Screenshot 2015-08-23 23.57.24At Docker, we believe that a vibrant commercial company and open source project can co-exist and in fact their mutual success is linked together. For those of you who have been with us since our open source beginnings, our first “value of support” webinar may have given you pause to think “hey, don’t try to sell me things” or “are you selling out?” However, software support is something that our users have been asking for as their use of Docker grows in their organization.

Our commercial solutions are built using the open source tool with packaging, support and maintenance to match the service levels that our users provide their own customers. Running a production environment is a complex mix of technology, process and people – all coordinating to keep their consumer experience with the application amazing. One piece of that is to have clear and defined ways to engage with companies (like Docker) for support, maintenance and validation of their operating environment. In this blog post, we once again rounded up all the great questions from the webinar to share with everyone.


Introducing the Technical Preview of Docker Engine for Windows Server 2016

written by Arnaud Porterie, Docker Senior Engineering Manager

It’s here…

As core engineer on the Docker Engine team, I naturally spend most of time in Linux. Recently that has been changing: in April, we released a Windows version of the Docker client. Through this process, we have been working closely with Microsoft developers and showing progress along the way, like what was demonstrated at the Build conference and DockerCon 2015.

One question I get a lot besides “When are you merging my PR?” is “When will Docker run on Windows?” The first question requires a blog post of it’s own… but the second question now has a rather exciting answer.

This week marks a huge leap forward as we release a tech preview of Docker Engine for Windows Server aka the Windows daemon available for download and testing. Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 3 (TP3) and Docker Engine for Windows Server together makes the Docker experience available to many more developers — to build new software and to contribute back to the project.

Docker’s SVP of Engineering Marianna Tessel will be delivering a keynote during the morning on Monday, August 17th – click here to sign up for the livestream of her talk!


Announcing Docker Toolbox

The fastest way to get Docker running in development

written by Michael ChiangDocker


Today we’re announcing a new installer for Mac OS X and Windows called Docker Toolbox.

We’ve been hearing again and again that it can be difficult to get up and started with Docker in development, particularly when you’ve got your app defined with Compose and then have to install Compose separately. With the popularity of Compose, Kitematic and Boot2Docker, we realized we needed to make all the pieces work better together.

Toolbox installs everything you need to get Docker running in development: the Docker client, Compose (Mac only), Kitematic, Machine, and VirtualBox. Toolbox uses Machine and VirtualBox to create an Engine in a VM to run your containers. On top of that VM, you can then use the Docker client, Compose and Kitematic to run containers.


Introducing Docker Content Trust

Image Signing and Verification using The Update Framework (TUF)


A common request that we’ve heard from the Docker community is the need to have strong cryptographic guarantees over what code and what versions of software are being run in your infrastructure. This is an absolute necessity for secure and auditable production deployments. To answer these needs, we are excited to announce a new feature in 1.8 called Docker Content Trust which integrates The Update Framework (TUF) into Docker using Notary, an open source tool that provides trust over any content.
