Since the Moby Project introduction at DockerCon 2017 in Austin last April, the Moby Community has been hard at work to further define the Moby project, improve its components (runC, containerd, LinuxKit, InfraKit, SwarmKit, Libnetwork and Notary) and fine processes and clear communication channels.
All project maintainers are developing these aspects in the open with the support of the community. Contributors are getting involved on GitHub, giving feedback on the Moby Project Discourse forum and asking questions on Slack. Special Interest Groups (SIGs) for the Moby Project components have been formed based on the Kubernetes model for Open Source collaboration. These SIGs ensure a high level of transparency and synchronization between project maintainers and a community of heterogeneous contributors.
In addition to these online channels and meetings, the Moby community hosts regular meetups and summits. Check out the videos and slides from the last DockerCon Moby Summit and June Moby Summit to catch up on the latest project updates. The Moby Summit page on the Moby website contains the agenda and registration link for next Moby summit, as well as recaps of previous summit.
The next Moby Summit will take place on September 14, 2017 in Los Angeles as part of the Open Source Summit North America. Following the success of the previous editions, we’ll keep the same format which consists of short technical talks / demos in the morning and Birds-of-a-Feather in the afternoon. We’re actively looking for people who can talk about their Moby Project use cases. Don’t hesitate to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to give a talk or would like to cover a specific topic during the BoF sessions, or contribute to the agenda by sending a pull request to the Moby website repository.
A big thank you to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) for sponsoring the containerd sessions and BOF.
