If you didn’t already know, Kitematic is the fastest and the easiest way to use Docker on your Mac  We are super excited to announce Kitematic is going to be part of Docker family.  We get to work alongside the team of developers that inspired us to start a company together.  Together we will continue our mission to build easy-to-use yet powerful open source developer products at Docker.

Introducing Docker’s New Open Source Community Manager

It was through this experience that she developed the ability to manage any difficult situation in a graceful and constructive way.
