Highlights from the DockerCon 2015 Hackathon

During the weekend before DockerCon, over 250 people participated in a 24-hour Docker-centric hackathon. Big thanks to Rancher for sponsoring the hackathon and to Microsoft for sponsoring the DockerCon Street Fighter Tournament. Also, thank you to all of the participants who made this event full of learning, hacking and fun! Click here to view all the photos from the event. The following tweet quite nicely summarizes how we feel about the hackathon and the incredible quality of the submissions! Amazed by amount of solid projects developed just in 24 hours during #dockercon #hackathon. Every single one is the winner to me — Alena Prokharchyk (@Lemonjet) June 21, 2015 Below are all of the hackathon submissions with the three winning projects featured at the top.

Join us for Docker Birthday and Open-Source-a-thon to support whales and marine wildlife

Two weeks ago, we proudly announced the organization of a global open-source-a-thon to celebrate the Docker project’s 2nd birthday. Today, we’re excited to share more details around the event series and how you can participate. During the week of March 23rd, the docker community will be hosting over a dozen open-source-a-thon parties around the world. At these parties the Docker core team and expert developers from the Go community will teach and guide participants on how to contribute to open source. Contributions to the project at these events and in the weeks following will count toward our donation to the Oceanic Society and its mission to conserve the habitat of Moby Dock and blue whales across the planet.

DockerCon Europe Hackathon

On the weekend before DockerCon 2014 which took place on June 9-10th in San Francisco, the Docker team decided to host a 24-hour Docker-centric hackathon at Docker HQ. The 3 winning teams (below) were offered free tickets for the conference and a chance to present their projects during the conference.   We all had a really good time thanks to all the participants and thought it would be fun to organize the European version of this DockerCon hackathon. Unlike the SF edition, we decided to schedule this hackathon on the Saturday following DockerCon Europe for people to hack on the new features and project announced during the conference. Rules As a Team of 1 to 3 hackers you will hack on a project using Docker as the central piece. You will have under 12 hours to complete this project including the time to create all materials needed for your Continue reading…

Docker Global Hack Day at TechEd Europe 2014

On October 15th, Docker, Inc and Microsoft Corp announced an exciting set of joint initiatives with the headline that the two companies will be collaborating on Docker Engine for Windows Server to create one standard for containers across all enterprise operating systems.  The partnership also covers Microsoft’s support of Docker’s open orchestration APIs which ensure portability for multi-container applications.  For the first time, developers will be able to directly work with a pre-configured Docker Engine in Azure and immediately begin work on creating a Dockerized application.  This new joint capability will be demonstrated live at Docker’s Global Hack Day on October 30th . To celebrate this new collaboration and capability, we decided to organize the Barcelona edition of the Docker Global Hack Day in collaboration with Microsoft TechEd Europe. Your Docker schedule at TechEd Europe: Wednesday, October 29 12:00 PM Continue reading…
