Docker Birthday #4: Thank you Docker Community!

Pақмет сізге, tak, धन्यवाद, cảm ơn bạn, شكرا, mulțumesc, gracias, merci, danke, obrigado, ευχαριστώ, köszönöm, thank you Docker community! From Des Moines to Santiago de Cuba, Budapest to Tel Aviv and Sydney to Cairo, it was so awesome to see the energy from the community coming together to celebrate and learn about Docker! We originally planned for 50 Docker Birthday #4 celebrations worldwide with 2,500 attendees. But over 9,000 people registered to attend one of the 152 celebrations across 5 continents! A huge thank you to all the Docker meetup organizers who worked hard to make these celebrations happen and offered Docker beginners the  opportunity to participate in hands on Docker labs. Join in on the fun! In case you missed it last week, check out the pics from all of the #DockerBday celebrations including the awesome birthday cakes! Check out the Facebook photo album too!

Docker Turns 4: Thank you Docker Community!

In case you missed it, this week we’re celebrating Docker’s 4th Birthday with meetups all over the world (check out #dockerbday on twitter). This feels like the right time to look back at the past 4 years and reflect on what makes the Docker Community so unique and vibrant: people, values, mentorship and learning opportunities. You can read our own Jérôme Petazzoni’s blog post for a more technical retrospective. Managing an open source project at that scale and preserving a healthy community doesn’t come without challenges. Last year, Arnaud Porterie wrote a very interesting 3-part series blog post on open source at Docker covering the different challenges associated with the People, the Process and the Tooling and Automation. The most important aspect of all being the people. Respect, fairness and openness are essential values required to create a welcoming environment for professionals and hobbyists alike.

Today we are announcing Docker Enterprise Edition (EE), a new version of the Docker platform optimized for business-critical deployments. Docker EE is supported by Docker Inc., is available on certified operating systems and cloud providers and runs certified Containers and Plugins from Docker Store.

Docker Community Spotlight: Nimret Sandhu

Nimret Sandhu has shown himself to be a key player in the success of the Docker Seattle Meetup group; and now with almost 2000 eager members,  organizing engaging events has become quite the responsibility!
