New Features of Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0 – Top 12 Questions from the Docker Virtual Event

In the recent Docker Virtual Event, Unveiling Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0, we demonstrated some of the key new capabilities of the Docker Enterprise Edition – the enterprise-ready container platform that enables IT leaders to choose how to cost-effectively build and manage their entire application portfolio at their own pace, without fear of architecture and infrastructure lock-in. Designed to address enterprise customers’ needs, these net-new features extend across both Swarm and Kubernetes (Part 1 of this blog) and across Windows and Linux applications (Part 2 of this blog).

If you missed the live event, don’t worry! You can still catch the recording on-demand here. Continue reading…

This year, we’ll talk about Space, AI and Serverless!
Past Cool Hacks have gone to be widely used: last year Marcos Nils and Jonathan Leibiusky showed Play with Docker, a Docker playground that you can run in your browser that is now used by tens of thousands of developers and system administrators monthly to learn the basics on Docker and was applied to learning Kubernetes with Play with Kubernetes;

Introducing Play with Kubernetes

Every month for the last year, thousands of people have used Play with Docker and the accompanying hands-on Play with Docker Classroom training site. These sites allow you to use and learn Docker entirely within your own browser, without installing anything. Last summer, we quietly launched the companion site Play with Kubernetes, to give people a full command line while learning Kubernetes on the command line. And today we’re launching a new Kubernetes training site, the Play with Kubernetes Classroom. The Play with Kubernetes Classroom is a workshop environment just like the Play with Docker Classroom. We currently have an extensive Kubernetes workshop originally based on Jérôme Petazzoni’s Container Training Kubernetes workshop. But instead of doing it all locally or setting up VMs in the cloud, you can now run through the workshop entirely in the browser. Like the Play with Docker Classroom, we’ll be Continue reading…
