Black Duck Software Press Releases - Wed, 03/11/2015 - 19:00

Live Discussion with Project Managers From Docker and Google!

In early 2013, the PaaS provider dotCloud open sourced its Docker container technology, hoping to bring flexible PaaS-like environments to the enterprise and across clouds. In just under two years, Docker has taken the software development industry by storm, growing to over 700 contributors and the 24th most starred project on GitHub. That popularity has inspired an entire ecosystem of supporting technologies.

Black Duck recognized Docker as a 2013 Open Source Rookie of the Year. In 2014, two of the Rookies of the Year are Docker related projects (Kubernetes and cAdvisor) and two other Docker related projects (Drone and Fig) received honorable mentions.

This webinar will delve into the importance of the Docker ecosystem of tools and projects helping to propel container technology to the forefront of software development innovation.
