5 Reasons Why We’re Thankful for the Docker Community

Nov 23 2017

As the weather gets colder and the days get shorter, we wanted to take some time to give a warm “thank you” to the Docker Community. With an ever-growing community and active community leaders, there’s a lot that Docker has to be thankful for this year! Here’s our top five:

1. Docker Community Gives Back

Members of  the Docker and Moby  Community work with unbelievable amounts of dedication and passion on some of the best open source projects around. Their hardwork never goes unnoticed, and the Moby Project is better because of it’s community of awesome contributors.  

Interested in getting started on the Moby Project? Get more info on how you can get involved here.


2. Our Community Knows how to Take Action

With over 500 Community Leaders and locations in 81 countries, we’re continually impressed by the initiative our community takes in mentoring and teaching one another – even when you’re on different parts of the globe. We’ve seen you collaborate and create, and we couldn’t be more thankful for all of the impressive tips, tricks and knowledge that you share with us and the community.

Our Docker Captains have given so much love to our Docker Community. From tirelessly answering questions on Twitter, providing office hours or creating new and exciting ways to learn about Docker, our Captains are truly leaders in the Docker Community.
