Docker Fans! Russ McKendrick Strikes Again.


As we have said many times before, we love celebrating the successes of our team members.

Well, Russ McKendrick has caught the eye of Docker again.

Docker, for those who don’t know, is an open source project to pack, ship and run any application as lightweight containers. You can develop Docker apps quickly, with little friction between various production environments. You can run the same Docker application on laptops, data center VMs, and any cloud, with no changes involved.

Earlier in the week, Russ wrote an article called “Docker Machine, Compose & Swarm.” The article discusses the changes that Docker have made, including the new command line tools:

  • Docker Machine – Allows you to easily deploy Docker instances to a lot of different platforms.
  • Docker Compose – A replacement for Fig.
  • Docker Swarm – Native clustering for your Docker instances.

It seems that Docker liked this post so much that they published it in their weekly newsletter as a featured article.

Nice one, Russ.
