Last month at DockerCon, we introduced the Moby Project: an open-source project sponsored by Docker to advance the software containerization movement. The idea behind the project is to help the ecosystem take containers mainstream by providing a library of components, a framework for assembling them into custom container-based systems and a place for all container enthusiasts to experiment and exchange ideas. Going forward, Docker will be assembled using Moby, see Moby and Docker or the diagram below for more details.
Moby Summit at DockerCon 2017
Knowing that that a good number of maintainers, contributors and advanced Docker users would be attending DockerCon, we decided to organize the first Moby Summit in collaboration with the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). The summit was a small collaborative event for container hackers who are actively maintaining, contributing or generally involved or interested in the design and development of components of the Moby project library in particular: LinuxKit, containerd, Infrakit, SwarmKit, libnetwork and Notary.
Here’s what we covered during the first part of the summit:
- 0:05 – Opening words by Patrick Chanezon
- 9:05 – Moby Project Q&A with Solomon Hykes and Justin Cormack
- 60:14 – Quick update on containerd by Michael Crosby
Here’s what we covered during the 2nd part of the summit:
- 0:18 – Swarmkit update by Andrea Luzzardi
- 7:52 – Libnetwork update by Madhu Venugopal
- 16:27 – Notary update by David Lawrence
- 19:59 – InfraKit update by David Chung
- 36:39– Infinit update by Julien Quintard
- 49:09 – MirageOS by Mindy Preston
Moby Summit at Docker HQ on June 19th
The feedback we received after the first Moby Summit at DockerCon being very positive, we decided to organize more Moby summits over the next few months. The next one will be taking place at Docker HQ on June 19th, 2017.
Here is the link to register for the event including a high level agenda for the event. All revenue from ticket sales will be donated to a non-profit organization promoting diversity in the tech industry.
Looking forward to seeing you there! Can’t attend this June Moby Summit in San Francisco? Join us for our first European Moby Summit as part of DockerCon Europe in Copenhagen.
