Docker Birthday


Happy 3rd Birthday Docker!

Three years ago, Solomon Hykes, Docker founder, CTO and Chief Product Officer, first shared the Docker project with the world during a lightning talk at PyCon 2013 on the future of Linux containers.

Since that presentation, the Docker has matured into a robust project with over 29,000 GitHub stars, 2B+ Docker container downloads, and 1600+ community contributors. Thank you to all of the contributors, maintainers, customers, hackers and other community members who helped make this possible!

To celebrate and welcome newcomers, the Docker community organized over 120 Docker Birthday celebrations in 50 countries across 5 continents! Each celebration includes a fun training for beginners on how to build, ship and run a distributed application with ease thanks to the Docker platform. We are immensely grateful to our awesome meetup organizers and the over 580 Docker experts helping newcomers complete the training!

We recently sat down with Solomon to reflect on the past three years, his birthday wishes for Docker and why diversity in tech and open source are important to him.


Tutorial: Role Based Access Control in Universal Control Plane

It’s been an exciting time for us since we released Docker Datacenter a couple of week ago, which included the GA of Universal Control Plane (UCP), our on-premises or VPC deployable management and orchestration solution for containers. Thank you for the enthusiastic response, and we’ll continue to deliver enterprise-grade feature sets into the Docker Datacenter platform.

One such feature we delivered in UCP 1.0 was Role Based Access Control (RBAC)—deciding and enforcing who gets access to which resources. This is a really important and complex component of commercial IT infrastructure.

Check out this tutorial walkthrough on how the feature is implemented in UCP.
