New Innovators Showcase @ DockerCon 2015

At this year’s DockerCon conference in San Francisco, we will be featuring six startups using Docker in our pilot New Innovators Showcase. This pilot program gives these early-stage startups a space to exhibit their work. This year’s New Innovators Showcase at DockerCon includes: resin.io, Opbeat, Cloud9, Converge, Logentries and Apcera. These six startups will be demo-ing their product on Tuesday, June 23 at DockerCon 2015.   In their own words: resin.io makes it simple to deploy, update, and maintain code running on remote devices. Our goal is to empower you to write great applications for devices – both in the virtual realm and those that cross over into the physical world – without having to worry about the friction involved in getting your hardware working and keeping your application up to date. Doing this manually involves setting up an operating system, Continue reading…
