Docker Online Meetup: Kitematic in action

Three weeks ago, we announced that Kitematic, an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) for running Docker containers on your Mac, was joining the Docker family. Today we’re happy to share with you the video recording from the last Docker Online Meetup about Kitematic (for those of you who missed the livestream). In this video, the founders of Kitematic first explain how Kitematic works under the hood, then move on to a couple live demos to finally wrap up by answering questions from the audience.

Kitematic a Docker GUI joins the Docker family

We are thrilled to announce the acquisition of Kitematic, the fastest and easiest way to use Docker on the Mac.  Because Docker is a tool for developers, we find that the developers in the ecosystem build the best tools for Docker.  Orchard’s Fig (now Compose) and SocketPlane are great examples of where great ideas were generated in the ecosystem to improving the developer experience and providing operational flexibility for distributed applications. Today with Kitematic, we take another step in simplifying the developer experience and making Docker accessible to new and different software developers – further growing and enriching the community and ecosystem together.

Our one click upgrade from dorm room to Docker – the Kitematic story.

If you didn’t already know, Kitematic is the fastest and the easiest way to use Docker on your Mac  We are super excited to announce Kitematic is going to be part of Docker family.  We get to work alongside the team of developers that inspired us to start a company together.  Together we will continue our mission to build easy-to-use yet powerful open source developer products at Docker. So why did we join Docker? The answer to that question can be found in the Kitematic story. The Itch We Had to Scratch It all began in our student apartment (ok – so it wasn’t a dorm room, but close enough). After going through a number of different internships while studying engineering at the University of Waterloo, we collectively came away with a sense that there fundamentally needed to be better Continue reading…
