Open Source Docker Project Celebrates First Anniversary

Docker, Inc., the commercial entity behind the open source Docker project, today announced the one year anniversary of the project. Since launching in March 2013, Docker has experienced rapid growth with over one million downloads, more than 370 contributors, an ever-expanding list of high profile users, partners and integrations, and a prominent and well-known user-base.

“Containerization has emerged as an essential solution for sys-admins and developers, as it provides a flexible way to build, scale and deploy applications, and reduces the time and expense of cloud infrastructure,” said Al Hilwa, program director, application development software at IDC. “Docker is emerging as a standard for containerization, driving innovation among developers, sys-admins, and DevOps alike.”

Within the past year, Docker has reached over 8,000 published “Dockerized” applications in its public index. The community has organized over 70 Docker meetup groups in 27 countries, and the project is seeing a growing global user-base, including well-known companies such as eBay, Yandex, Mailgun, CloudFlare, Baidu and Spotify. The community has created integrations across a broad set of DevOps tools, Docker drivers have been accepted into OpenStack, and companies such as Red Hat, Rackspace, and Google have announced products based on or supporting Docker. Furthermore, Red Hat recently launched a container certification program based on Docker for its ISVs.

“The response we’ve received from the open source community throughout the past year makes this milestone an even more gratifying accomplishment and celebration,” said Solomon Hykes, founder and CTO of Docker. “We launched the Docker project with the goal of providing developers and sys-admins with a simpler and more-effective tool for building, scaling and deploying applications, and we are thrilled to see this objective coming to fruition. Ranging from our team to the entire robust community, the Docker ecosystem is driving innovation and altering how people view computing for the better.”

“Having reached the one year mark, it’s truly remarkable to reflect on the community’s accomplishments thus far,” said Ben Golub, CEO of Docker. “Docker’s success is a clear demonstration of the power and potential of open source, and we are beyond grateful to have such an amazing, active community. After just one year, we are confident that Docker is becoming the standard for containerization, and an important alternative to virtualization for many important workloads. We can’t wait to build off the successes in year two.”

So the dumpster is on fire. Again. The site's down. Your boss's face is an ever-deepening purple. And you begin debating whether you should join the #incident channel or call an ambulance to deal with his impending stroke. Yes, we know this is a developer's fault. There's plenty of time for blame later. Postmortems have a macabre name because they were once intended to be Viking-like funerals for someone's job. But we're civilized now. Sort of. So we call them post-incident reviews. Fires are never going to stop. We're human. We miss bugs. Or we fat finger a command - deleting dozens of servers and bringing down S3 in US-EAST-1 for hours - effectively halting the internet. These things happen.
Hackers took three days to identify and exploit a known vulnerability in Equifax’s web applications. I will share new data that reveals why three days (at most) is the new normal for DevSecOps teams to move new business /security requirements from design into production. This session aims to enlighten DevOps teams, security and development professionals by sharing results from the 4th annual State of the Software Supply Chain Report -- a blend of public and proprietary data with expert research and analysis.Attendees can join this session to better understand how DevSecOps teams are applying lessons from W. Edwards Deming (circa 1982), Malcolm Goldrath (circa 1984) and Gene Kim (circa 2013) to improve their ability to respond to new business requirements and cyber risks.

The digital transformation is real! To adapt, IT professionals need to transform their own skillset to become more multi-dimensional by gaining both depth and breadth of a wide variety of knowledge and competencies. Historically, while IT has been built on a foundation of specialty (or "I" shaped) silos, the DevOps principle of "shifting left" is opening up opportunities for developers, operational staff, security and others to grow their skills portfolio, advance their careers and become "T"-shaped.
