DockerCon brings industry leaders and experts of the container world to one event where they share their knowledge, experience and guidance. This year is no different. For the next few weeks, we’re going to highlight a few of our amazing speakers and the talks they will be leading. In this third highlight, we have several speakers who will be sharing their real world Docker use cases and learnings.  These are the folks who have already put things in place and are here to share and inspire. Interested in transforming legacy applications? Or maybe large scale data analytics is your focus. Maybe…

As more organizations pursue cloud-native applications and infrastructures for creating modern software environments, it has become clear that there is no single solution in the market for defining and packaging these multi-service, multi-format distributed applications. Real-world applications can now span on-premises infrastructure and cloud-based services, requiring multiple tools like Terraform for the infrastructure, Helm charts and Docker Compose files for the applications, and CloudFormation or ARM templates for the cloud-services. Each of these need to be managed separately.     To address this problem, Microsoft in collaboration with Docker are announcing Cloud Native Application Bundle (CNAB) – an open source,…

A convergence of forces in SaaS, IoT, cloud, and mobile have placed unprecedented requirements on businesses to accelerate innovation to meet those rapidly changing preferences. The big don’t eat the small, the fast eat the slow. The industry has offered several solutions to this acceleration problem – from working harder to outsourcing and devops, but none of those solutions have really offered the levels of acceleration needed. The reason: there is too much friction slowing the art of the possible. Docker and MuleSoft remove friction in the innovation process, from ideation all the way to deployment. MuleSoft provides a tops…

Over the last decade, the popularity of microservices and highly-scalable systems has increased, leading to an overall increase in the complexity of applications that are now distributed heavily across the network with many moving pieces and potential failure modes. This architectural evolution has changed the monitoring requirements and led to a need for scalable and insightful tooling and practices to enable us to better identify, debug and resolve issues in our systems before they impact the business and our end users (internal and/or external). I recently gave a talk at DockerCon SF 18 discussing functionality in Docker Enterprise that enables…

In yesterday’s DockerCon keynote, Eric Drobisewski, Senior Architect at Liberty Mutual Insurance, shared how Docker Enterprise Edition has been a foundational technology for their digital transformation. If you missed it, the replay of the keynote is available below:  Turning Disruption into Opportunities Liberty Mutual – the 3rd largest property and casualty insurance provider in the United States –  recognizes that the new digital economy is bringing a faster cycle of technology evolution. Disruptive technologies like autonomous vehicles and smart homes are changing the way customers interact and transact. Liberty Mutual sees these as opportunities to bring new services to…

In what appears to be a recurring theme (which I promise I’ll move off of soon), I’m going to spend some time talking about what Docker isn’t – Docker is not application virtualization. I spent a good amount of time at VMware where I worked on VMware View (which begat Horizon View which begat Horizon 7), so I’m more than a bit familiar with desktop and application virtualization. And, I understand why some people, when they first hear us talk about leveraging Docker for application portability they think along the lines of App-V, XenApp or ThinApp.

TL,DR I’m a developer on the Hub team at Docker, Inc. My realm of responsibility spans three different projects: Docker Hub, Registry Hub and www.docker.com. Each of these are Django applications with their own PostgreSQL, Redis, and RabbitMQ instances. I want to be able to “start projects” from one command and not only have everything running, but also have logs, Python shells, file system monitoring, a shell at the root of each project, and git fetch –all without having to type it all myself over and over and over again. This post will describe the development environment I built to…
