It’s hard to believe that 2015 is almost over! We saw lots of great content from the Docker community this year including blog posts, tutorials, conference sessions, meetup talks and more – check out our curated collection of community content here. Thank you to everyone who contributed awesome Docker content this year – we’re looking forward to seeing more great stuff in 2016! Here are a few of the Docker team’s favorites from the Docker community in 2015:
Dear friends and members of the open source community, It is with great sadness that we inform you that Ian Murdock passed away on Monday night. This is a tragic loss for his family, for the Docker community, and the broader open source world; we all mourn his passing. To Ian’s children, family and loved ones, we offer our full support and deepest sympathies.
As we build out Docker’s infrastructure plumbing, we are committed to releasing these plumbing components as open source to help the community. Today we’re releasing a new daemon to control runC called: containerd. It’s built for performance and density, and will eventually be built into Docker Engine.
In July Docker became a Founding Member of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). Today the CNCF gets started with a ratified open governance structure including a Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) to direct technical decisions, for which nominations are open.
Last June, we launched the Open Container Initiative, under the auspices of the Linux Foundation. The OCI was designed to collaborate on an open, standard container format and runtime in order to preserve that portability and interoperability for users. We’re very happy with the progress OCI has made, and we wanted to share that with you.
Thanks everyone in the Twitterverse for helping us reach the 100k followers milestone! We love seeing the Docker community ask questions, post pictures and more on Twitter and other social media channels. Scroll down to see some of our favorite tweets from the Docker community.
