Last Wednesday was Docker’s 50th meetup in San Francisco! There was an awesome turnout from the local Docker community to see Docker’s own Nishant Totla and Dongluo Chen and their talk on Swarm Mode.

It’s been nearly two weeks since Docker released Docker 1.12 as generally available for production environments, introducing a number of new features and concepts to the Docker project.
