    Docker is turning 6 years old! Over the years, Docker Community members have found some amazing and innovative ways of using Docker technology and we’ve been blown away by all the use-cases we’ve seen from the community at DockerCon. From Docker for Space where NASA used Docker technology to build software to deflect asteroids to using “gloo” to glue together traditional apps, microservices and serverless, you all continue to amaze us year over year. So this year, we want to celebrate you! From March 18th to the 31st, Docker User Groups all over the world will be hosting local birthday show-and-tell…

To close DockerCon Cool Hacks keynote, Idit Levine from Solo.io presented Gloo, a high-performance, plugin-extendable, platform-agnostic function Gateway built on top of Envoy. Idit showed a demo that involved modernizing a traditional application; the classic Spring Pet Clinic sample app, by containerizing it and deploying it to Docker Enterprise Edition. She added functionality to the app by adding a microservice written in Go through a Gloo route. Then added more functionality by adding a Gloo route to an AWS Lambda function, creating a true hybrid cloud application combining legacy, microservices and serverless components. She then provided a demo of Squash, that works…

Yesterday we continued a long tradition at DockerCon, the Cool Hacks closing keynote. In our Cool Hacks keynote, we like to emphasize applications that push the limits and applications that represent major future trends in container workloads. We also like to feature applications that demonstrate how Docker fueled innovation can be used every day. This DockerCon, the three applications we chose embodied all of these characteristics. Our first hack, by Christopher Heistand of the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory is helping save the world. The Double Asteroid Redirect Mission Test (DART) is testing kinetic impact against an asteroid to…
