-- via my feedly newsfeed 

The Docker Community has continued to impress us with so much awesomeness packed in just a few days at DockerCon 2016!

Big thank you to all of the 141 confirmed speakers (not including Open Forum track sessions!), 100+ sponsors and over 4,000 attendees for helping us make such a big splash in Seattle.

We'll post the recorded videos and slides soon starting with the general sessions but here is a brief recap of all of the news from DockerCon 2016!

So many exciting #Docker announcements and news from #DockerCon 2016!

DOCKER NEWS: DAY 1

Docker 1.12: Now with Built-in Orchestration!

Three years ago, Docker made an esoteric Linux kernel technology called containerization simple and accessible to everyone. Today, we are doing the same for container orchestration.

Starting with Docker 1.12, we have added features to the core Docker Engine to make multi-host and multi-container orchestration easy. We've added new API objects, like Service and Node, that will let you use the Docker API to deploy and manage apps on a group of Docker Engines called a swarm. With Docker 1.12, the best way to orchestrate Docker is Docker!

Announcing the Docker for Mac and Windows Public Beta

Back in March, we launched a private beta for a new ambitious project called Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows. Our major goal was to bring a native Docker experience to Mac and Windows, making it easier for developers to work with Docker in their own environments. We're happy to announce that we're opening up the beta for Docker for Mac and Windows to everyone. And along with the beta for Docker for Mac and Windows, you get the new Docker 1.12 release candidate.

Introducing the Docker for AWS and Azure Beta

We're excited to announce Docker for AWS and Docker for Azure: the best ways to install, configure and maintain Docker deployments on AWS and Azure.

Introducing Experimental Distributed Application Bundles

The built-in orchestration features announced today with Docker 1.12 will revolutionize how IT teams build, ship and run containerized apps. With Docker 1.12, developers and ops now share a set of simple and powerful APIs, tools, and formats for building agile delivery pipelines that ship software from development through CI to production in the cloud with Docker for AWS and Azure.
 




 

DOCKER NEWS: DAY 2

Introducing the Docker Store Private Beta

We are very excited to announce the private beta of Docker Store, a marketplace for trusted and validated dockerized software – free, open source and commercial.

Our goals with Docker Store are designed around bringing Docker users and ecosystem partners together.

Docker Datacenter in AWS and Azure in a few clicks

Introducing Docker Datacenter AWS Quickstart and Azure Marketplace Templates production-ready, high availability deployments in just a few clicks.

The Docker Datacenter AWS Quickstart uses a CloudFormation templates and pre-built templates on Azure Marketplace to make it easier than ever to deploy an enterprise CaaS Docker environment on public cloud infrastructures.

Register Now for the Docker 1.12 Hackathon

With the recent announcement of Docker 1.12, we are happy to announce that today marks the first day of the Docker 1.12 Hackathon! Now that the hackathon is open for registration, participants are encouraged to hack using the new features included in Docker 1.12 including: Swarm Mode, the Service Deployment API, and the built-in routing mesh.

How Docker for Mac helps me sleep better at night

As a CTO and founder, one of the biggest advantages of Docker is being able to get new team members ready to code in no time. We used to have to keep a 5 page long README on setting up all the dependencies… that README would get outdated very quickly. Now I can get a new team member set-up and coding in 5 minutes, it's a huge win.

Building Serverless Apps with Docker

Serverless doesn't mean there is no Docker – in fact, Docker is serverless. You can use Docker to containerize these functions, then run them on-demand on a Swarm. Serverless is a technique for building distributed apps and Docker is the perfect platform for building them on.
