Back in March 2013, Docker’s CTO and Founder, Solomon Hykes introduced Docker publicly for the first time during a lightning talk at PyCon. Three years later the Docker project has significantly matured to become the open platform of choice for building, shipping and running distributed applications in an infrastructure agnostic Container as a Service (CaaS) model. Thanks to the hard work of thousands of contributors from Docker, Inc and the Docker community, the Docker platform is now used in production by companies of all sizes and industries.
Last year, to celebrate the Docker project’s 2nd birthday, we proudly organized a global open-source-a-thon where the Docker core team and expert developers from the Go community guided participants through their first open source contributions which resulted in donation to the Oceanic Society and its mission to conserve the habitat of Moby Dock and blue whales across the planet.
This year, to celebrate the Docker Project’s 3rd birthday, the Docker community is joining forces with a number of partners in the broader tech and open-source community to host a series of events focused on providing Docker training to beginners during the week of March 21-26.
