Docker Community All Hands: Event Recap, December 2021

A year ago, we launched Community All Hands (CAH). The goal was to bring Docker employees and community members together to get the latest product updates. This time around, we’ve developed CAH to include multiple community paths that give our amazing community members the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience.

The event had a main track, hosted by our core team, and seven community tracks. We were amazed at the level of engagement and engagement from our community – over 1,000 people tuned in to watch the community conversations.

We also had a networking section where people could talk to each other and meet Docker employees. This was a great opportunity for people to learn more about our team, meet the engineers behind the curtains, and even learn about how they work at Docker.

Scott Johnston, CEO of Docker, launched the company’s Community All Hands event with a presentation at the annual summary. It highlights some of the most important moments and achievements that the Docker developer community has achieved over the past year.

The company focuses its roadmap and priorities on three things for developers: speed, choice, and security.

“It’s been a year for all of us, and we hope you’re safe and continue to stay safe and well. It’s also been a very positive year for the Docker developer community,” Scott said. “We are very excited to head into next year. It will be an extraordinary year with new features, content and experiences for developers.”

One of the highlights of Community All Hands was a panel hosted by Peter McKee with key Docker Desktop employees, including engineers and product managers. Discuss Docker Desktop licensing questions, roadmap, and new features. Anca Iordache talked about Awesome Compose, a set of templates to help you get started with your next Docker project.

We’ve also hosted a starter path to get you started with containers. You can hear from Docker Captains on how to do this You can overcome learning barriers when trying new technologies.

Finally, members of our open source software presented their projects and explained how they are using Docker to speed up their work. They showcased their projects in multiple disciplines such as bioinformatics, developer tools, machine learning, DevOps, and security.

The Docker developer community is thriving, and the company is committed to continuing to support and invest in it. Thanks to all the developers who have contributed to the Docker community over the past year – we can’t wait to see what you build next.
