Help Docker’s Initiatives to Promote Tech Diversity Including Bump Up at DockerCon

Docker is actively working to improve opportunities for women and underrepresented minorities throughout the global ecosystem and promote diversity in the larger tech community. We’re proud to have contributed close to $100,000 in sponsorships, scholarships and complementary tickets to DockerCon.

Announcing Docker Birthday #3

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.

Happy Birthday Docker!

  It’s been a year now since Docker was launched. Solomon Hykes, first demoed it during PyCon 2013, it then leaked on Hacker News, and several days later Docker was officially launched and open sourced. Since then, 370 contributors joined the project, 60+ Docker Meetup Groups were launched in 27 different countries, Docker has been downloaded more than 1,000,000 times, dotCloud became Docker and recently announced DockerCon. Docker would not have much significance without its massive community. We’ve noticed some amazing things about you that we’ve listed for our 1 year celebration. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
