For many years the Docker open source project was one of the most popular projects on GitHub with over one thousand contributors and a fire hose of constant suggestions, issues, and changes. While Docker is still very popular, the evolution of the components that historically were a unified, single Docker open source engine has led to several different open source projects comprising the overall functionality found in a Docker installation on Windows, Mac, or Linux.
In this talk, we'll look at the Open Container Initiative (OCI), the creation of the Moby Project as an umbrella for Docker's open source components, and the CNCF (Cloud Native Computing Foundation) containerd project--all critical components that make up the overall Docker engine--as well as talk about the growth and maturity of the container industry that brought us to this point. More than simply provide a laundry list of open source projects and details, this talk will provide the reasoning and applicability to the developer or user of Docker. The container ecosystem has grown and changed rapidly through a wild five-year ride since the creation of Docker; this talk will bring you up to date on the current state of the ecosystem and open source underpinnings of the container technology that we all know and love.

For our January edition Phil will be joining us all the way from the states! He will give us an insiders’ look at the Docker engine evolution from 2014-2018. End users of the Docker platform may not be aware of the growth and evolution of the open source components that come together as the full Docker engine and platform of today. In this insider look at the evolution of the open source components on which the Docker engine is built, developers will get a view for how the project is built and delivered today. This will include discussion on components that have been spun out into other foundations and projects, like the Open Container Initiative (OCI) and Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).
From meetups to DockerCon and webinars to workshops, there are lots of great Docker events happening around the world. Whether you're new to containers or a Docker expert, you'll find opportunities to attend Docker events near you!
