written by Antonio Murdaca, (@runc0m) I’ve always struggled with finding the free time to give back some of what I take from open source on a daily basis. This is by far the most obvious reason people find it difficult to start their open source “career” and turn contributing into a regular hobby. Unless you’re being paid for it, the time you spend contributing to open source is time you could have spent having a beer with friends. And many times, discussions with colleagues about doing feature “X” for open source project “Y” ends with someone saying, “Who cares if…

Back in March, we invited you to be a part of Docker’s first-ever open-source-a-thon to celebrate the project’s 2nd birthday and work towards a good cause. Now that over a month of events and online contributions have come to a close, we wanted to show off all the hard work our community has put in, and the amazing feat they’ve accomplished. Over 1,200 people attended birthday events across the world, between 17 open-source-a-thons organized by Docker and 7 run completely by community members. Participants learned Go, mentored beginner contributors, made their first open source pull requests, updated docs, wrote blog…

  It’s been a year now since Docker was launched. Solomon Hykes, first demoed it during PyCon 2013, it then leaked on Hacker News, and several days later Docker was officially launched and open sourced. Since then, 370 contributors joined the project, 60+ Docker Meetup Groups were launched in 27 different countries, Docker has been downloaded more than 1,000,000 times, dotCloud became Docker and recently announced DockerCon. Docker would not have much significance without its massive community. We’ve noticed some amazing things about you that we’ve listed for our 1 year celebration. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

The community has been critical to Docker since its inception. While we’ve always known how awesome the community is, we decided to pull some stats from the Docker Repository on Github to help quantify the awesomeness. The table below shows the total contributions for Docker in terms of code additions, deletions and commits. *Docker Project Stats on 10/29/2013: To avoid stressing GitHub’s APIs, we crunched the data locally.
