Over 2,000 community members attend local meetups hosting Docker Global Hack Day #3 events. A big thank you to all of the sponsors who helped make those events possible!

The jury composed of Docker experts was quite impressed with the 42 hacks that were submitted for final judging!

We actually did receive 42 valid submissions so this Docker Global Hack Day #3 must be related to the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything!

We are excited to announce the winners of the Local Editions for Docker Global Hack Day #3. Each member of the winning teams will receive a custom Docker Global Hack Day #3 baseball shirt.

Now we need your help choosing the global winners!

Only votes cast on social media via this page will be counted towards the final judging for global winners.

We apologize for some earlier confusion regarding the social media votes – we are tracking each vote cast on that page to decide the global winner. 

To ensure complete fairness in this competition, the voting committee reserves the right to reassess the quality of the winning submissions, regardless of the category for which they were submitted. Stars on GitHub will also count towards the final selection of winners. The voting committee will award bonus points for their favorite submissions in addition to the social media voting from the Docker community.


Below is the list of Docker Global Hack Day #3 Local Edition winners:


Bangalore, India: dockerComp by Archit Sharma

Crowd sourced analysis, distributed computing through docker, python and compose/kubernetes.

Could be done efficiently, in lesser time and to be able to analyze more data in that time being able to run multiple agents (within multiple containers) on multiple clients and being able to control the number of containers launched per client.


Berlin, Germany: Emerald CI by Frederic Branczyk

Emerald CI want to pursue a Docker Compose driven development. You test your software on the CI server just like you test locally, it drastically reduces the risk of breaking the build due to differences of the environments. It uses the same docker-compose.yml specification as Docker Compose, therefore all you need is a docker-compose.yml and a minimal config in your repo.


Bordeaux, France: git notary by Christophe Labouisse

Proof of concept: how to use Notary to verify git’s tags. In a nutshell this is a script shell implementing a new git notary command with four different commands: init, tag, push and verify.


Brisbane, Australia: elope By Craig Barr and Alistair Palmer

In some cases, CI/CD-based Docker deployments can be slower than non-containerised deployments. One reason for this is the limitation with container links in a stack requiring for multiple containers to be restarted even if only one of them needs to change. This can cause a domino effect that can only be counteracted by side-by-side deployments (aka blue-green) or incremental deployment. For some technologies, a volume can be used so that new binary versions are replaced in a way that the container dynamically rediscovers them. However, when it comes to shipping these containers to controlled environments we may not actually want a volume.

elope allows you to snapshot packages for incremental deployment to live containers. During deployment, elope will also generate a new image which can be used at a later time for full deployment. There is the ability to perform a diff in order to see how the live container has been patched over time. elope is Docker deployments without the ceremony

Brno, Czech Republic: HICA By shaded-enmity

The goal of this project is to define a set of image label metadata and launcher tooling that understands said metadata to provide for smooth experience running containerized applications with tight integration with the host operating system.

Budapest, Hungary: Runnable Container by Lajos Papp

Let create single-fil, downloadable, binary containers. For example: – export a Docker container starting from alpine into roots dir – add statically linked runC to root dir – add config.json,runtime.json to root dir – create a self extracting statically linked go binary Example: curl -L | tar -xz && ./kontainer-alpine


Buenos Aires, Argentina: Container migration tool (CMT) by Marcos Lilljedahl, Jonathan Leibiusky and Gabriel Eisbruch

Checkpoint & Restore is still a feature which is not generically available to container users. Certain understanding about how it works is needed and it’s most likely that users get errors when trying to perform CR due to some restrictions or differences between the source and the target host. The purpose of the project is to create an external command line tool that can be either used with docker or runC which helps on the task to live migrate containers between different hosts by performing pre-migration validations and allowing to auto-discover suitable target hosts.


Cairo, Egypt: dockpot by Ahmad Aabed

Dockpot is a high interaction ssh-honeypot based on docker This solved the problems of the low interaction honeypots as the attacker believes he is in areal machine and you can make the docker container anything you want to fool the attacker.


Casablanca, Morocco: Docker+Slack by Aboullaite Mohamed and Zakaria Braksa

A Slack integration to send Docker events notifications (start, stop containers).


Charlotte, North Carolina: Private Docker Registry CLI by Phillip Shipley

A Go based CLI for interacting with a private Docker Registry. It is not complete yet but currently can list repositories, list tags for a repository, and remove blobs and tag manifests.


Greenville, South Carolina: Awesome Progress Bars by Spencer Smith, Charlie Snyder, John Wessel and Tony Winters

This is DockerGVL’s submission for Global Hack Day 3. We decided that the normal progress bars that the user sees when pulling images, extracting them, etc. are far too boring. As such, we overhauled them to present a random “Docker Animal” for each progress bar that will swim across the sea that is your terminal session as images are pulled down. The goal was to represent all of the mascots of Docker (including Gordon the turtle), so the animals can be one of: [🐢, 🐙, 🐟, 🐳]. Example: 9y1p4kh


Guadalajara, México: Whalescope: a Docker Monitor UI by Gustavo Mejia, Omar Chavez and Irving Gómez

This is an UI application to monitor Docker from any given host. We’ll build this application in order to have a way to monitor any action from variuos hosts and also control them from a clean UI. We’ll be capable of run, stop and kill containers. And also We’ll check the status of all our containers. This way non-technical people can get intimate with docker. Next steps: Let the user add hosts to control. Add graphs of the container status. Add search from Registry and let the user download and start from it. Add Stop and Start button to container view.


Hai Noi, Vietnam: T3kpTun by Nguyen Sy Thanh Son, Tran Huu Cuong and Võ Quang Thái

Starting from your github repository, t3kpTun trys to generate Dockerfile describing how to package your source code application. We define the input form in which you could figure out various parameters for the application including webserver (Apache or Tomcat), dependencies, TCP ports, linked services, etc.and then, t3kpTun helps to deploy automatically these bundle of your audited files and source code into a Swarm cluster under your AWS account.


Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam: Mini Monitor by Lương Hữu Tân, Trần Minh Đức and Trần Anh Tuấn

This is a mini monitor tool for monitor custom metric from container, and should be start inside container when spawned. It will get custom metric for alarm via pushbullet and send data to influxdb for graphing. We can write your own module to get custom metric from container, and this tool will help us monitor base on pre-define metric threshold, and push data for graphing.


Hyderabad, India: AppIt by Ronak Kogta and Sambuddha Basu

Our goal is simple, we want to use ideas of docker to make desktop experience better. Search trusted applications from AppIt repositories. Tight Dropbox integrations to retain app customizations, even if you are on different hosts. Usability: Click on app icons like you used to, but now they will run on docker.


Lyon, France: Owler by Houssem Belhadj Ahmed and Gabriel Roquigny

Owler is a multiplatform mobile app to manage docker using the Docker Remote API. It aim to facilitate the management and the monitoring of containers.


Mountain View, CA: ScaleSwarm by Ankush Agarwal and Harshit Mittal

Swarm and Machine are individually very powerful projects, but when combined, they can work wonders. The project attempts to create a self-scaling cluster using Swarm and Machine. Currently, the cluster needs to be manually set up and configured. Whenever the swarm capacity is full, a new docker host needs to be attached to the cluster. This is something which can be intelligently automated. Whenever Swarm runs out of resources, it invokes Machine to provision new docker hosts. Machine and Swarm are individually very powerful tools, but when linked together, they can do much more powerful things. Here, to setup an AWS Docker Auto Scaling cluster, all you need is swarm, machine and Amazon API Keys.


Mumbai, India: OpTool for docker build optimization by Mohan Pawar and Binil Jacob

Till now everyone apply, the optimization at image level, but here we have planned to build a tool which work as a daemon process as your image starts building. Basically, other things removing redundancy, dead code, other irrelevant contains will be removed. So, your memory use is efficient.


New York, NY: docker-record by Jürgen Cito, Allon Hadaya and Saptarshi Kar

With docker-record we want to address the process of getting your infrastructure up-and-running within your container and then having to painfully reproduce what you did to create a Dockerfile. We provide a semi-automated way that takes us from Docker container to the reproducible and transparent definition of infrastructure in a Dockerfile.


Oxford, United Kingdom: Spyhop by Chris Seymour and Jonatan Bjork

Container monitoring web UI inspired by docker-mon, lists containers running on the host and shows current CPU utilisation levels for all containers. More metrics to be implemented!


Paris, France: Global discovery token by Alain Douangpraseuth and Christophe Lecointe

We want to provide a new way to discover nodes for Swarm, as easy to use as tokens while being decentralized.


Prague, Czech Republic: Container Swiss Knife by David Bečvařík, Jakub Veverka and Fabio Nigi

Every time something is wrong with any container and if you need too look inside it lacks use-full tools like, ping, ip, traceroute, strace, ltrace, ldd – almost anything. Now you can do it easily and in a reproducible/script friendly way.


Rennes, France: aka by Guillaume Gerbaud, Armel Gouriou and Mathieu Pousse

Add built-in aliases support to save time running by running complex one liners commands with just one word.


San Francisco, CA and London, UK: Professor Owl by Mark Sta Ana and Adria Richards

This is a new, fun way to learn to use Docker without needing a server in the cloud or installing Docker Toolbox on your computer. All you need is a modern web browser! Our highly advanced Professional Online Wow Learning software (Professor Owl) will guide you through setting up your first container, managing and troubleshooting. You’ll also learn how to:

– set up a data volume

– link containers

– make ports visible on the Internet

– deploy your first web app

– combine containers to host your own blog

By the end of the tutorial you’ll see how easy it is to run Docker.


San Jose, CA: Docker Flow by Cindy Hy Caoa

Docker Flow manages workflow running in Docker containers. With Docker Flow you can define your workflow in yaml files, docker-flow reads the container requirements and execution steps for each job, and uses docker-compose to define Dockerfiles, container linkings and exposed ports, builds docker images, and runs composed application stack in Docker swarm.


Seattle, WA: DockerSlim by Dmitry Vorobev and Kyle Quest

Creating small containers requires a lot of voodoo magic and it can be pretty painful. You shouldn’t have to throw away your tools and your workflow to have skinny containers. Using Docker should be easy. docker-slim is a magic diet pill for your containers 🙂 It will use static and dynamic analysis to create a skinny container for your app. Right now it only does simple dynamic analysis 🙂


Sydney, Australia: Docker token Auth servie (foresti) by Dejan Golja and David Howden

This is a Docker token registry authentication service which supports token authentication introduced in Registry V2. For storing user data it uses vault backend, but future plans are to extend it to more backends. Benefits of using the new token authentication introduced in registry v2 is a fine-grained access control to your private registry. That’s specially important in bigger teams where you share your registry with different projects.


Taipei, Taiwan: Spacer by Poga

We already have great tools to help us dealing with library dependencies, such as Bundler, NPM, and Cargo. However, in the world of microservices, we still have to manage our own microservice infrastructure. Creating a scalable microservice infrastructure is a hard task and need a lot of experiences. With Spacer, you simply write down the service you need, the version you want. Spacer will take care of all the work of building, monitering, and scaling for you. For example, we need a production-ready open-source spam-filter service. we can write “poga/spam-fighter” in a file named Spacerfile. Spacer will pull the correct service from github and deploy them to development environment or production-ready IaaS. Now we can scale this spam-filter service together and everyone can benefit from it. Thanks to Docker.


Toronto, Canada: Chorus by Niall Byrne

Chorus is a simple webservice, that allows you to easily setup a build farm for building and running docker files. A simple CLI interface allows you to manage a large fleet of machines, and a large repo of docker files quite easily. Easily distribute, build, run and stop your containers as you see fit, and embed docker run command line options right into your dockerfiles.
