Today I’m announcing my departure from Docker, the company I helped create ten years ago and have been building ever since. A founder’s departure is usually seen as a dramatic event. Sadly, I must report that reality is far less exciting in this case. I’ve had many roles at Docker over the years, and today I have a new, final one – as an active board member, a major shareholder and, I expect, a high maintenance Docker user.

I am thrilled to be joining dotCloud as CEO and excited to be joining the talented, passionate and rapidly growing Docker community. I started following dotCloud in 2011, when the standard PaaS model was to offer a single stack that ran on a single provider’s infrastructure.
