The Docker community held their second Global Hack Day on October 30th with activities in no less than 30 cities around the world. The goal was to gather the members of the community to brainstorm on new ideas for the Docker project.
On November 6th and 7th Container Solutions will be in Berlin. Adrian Mouat, Chief Scientist at Container Solutions, will give a talk "Achieving Zen through Bundling with Docker".
Adrian will give a look at how Docker can be used to provide specialised environments catering to niche requirements by wrapping applications along with their dependencies and configuration. For example, imagine starting on a new software-development.
It seems there is nothing Adrian can't put in a container. In preparation for GOTO Berlin next week, and in fit of rage at PowerPoint, he decided to use RevealJS and put his slides in a container. Check out his write up in the Docker registry.
The Docker Official Repositories program was launched back in June. It is intended to provide a curated set of images that people can use with some guarantee of quality. This blog post will take a quick look at how to find and use these images as well as pointing out some potential issues.
