“Docker has been flexible with working hours and childcare since my very first day and I’ve never felt “frowned upon’ or scrutinised for having to drop off a call early for a school pick-up or take time off for childhood illness. The culture is open, considerate, respectful and values the voices of all employees, no matter their level or role.”

Diversity and Women in Tech

At Docker, we feel strongly about embracing diversity and we are committed to being proactive with respect to inclusion. As an example of our support for diversity, during our DockerCon 2021, we hosted Community Rooms with panels and sessions for our global audience in their native languages. We highlighted the contributions from our women Captains and community developers.

At DockerCon 2021, we hosted a Women in Tech panel focused on the breadth and depth of knowledge from our panelists and their experiences using Docker technology throughout their career. We are looking forward to hosting more of these women in tech events in the future.

Anca Iordache Shares Docker Compose with the Developer Community

Anca lordache, one of our talented engineers, gave an amazing talk during our Docker Community All Hands in December 2021. Anca lordache is a Software Engineer I who presented “Awesome Compose: Start RunningYour Container Now.”

Docker Compose is a tool for defining and running multi-container applications. With Compose, you use a simple YAML file to configure your application’s services. The ‘awesome-compose’ Github repository was created to help developers learn about Docker Compose. It provides several Compose application samples spanning different technologies, enabling developers to get started quickly. In this talk, Anca explains why we created “awesome-compose” and demo some of the application samples from the repo.
