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.

For the Docker 1.12 Hackathon, we are using a platform called DevPost, which allows participants to review the rules, submit their hacks, view other hacks, participate in and start discussions, and easily find other participants with similar interests or complementary skills to join forces with! Submissions are due on Monday, July 25th followed by a week-long judging period.

The judging panel for the Docker 1.12 Hackathon include three Docker Captains and two Docker employees:

  • Phil Estes – Docker Captain and Senior Technical Staff Member at IBM Cloud Open Technologies
  • Arun Gupta – Docker Captain and VP of Developer Relations at Couchbase
  • Laura Frank – Docker Captain and Senior Engineer at Codeship
  • Mano Marks – Director of Developer Relations at Docker
  • Mike Coleman – Technical Evangelist at docker

Each of our five judges will assign a rating of 1-5 stars based on the following criteria:

  • Fit: Does Docker improve the project or fundamentally enable it?
  • Efficiency: Is this implementation small in size, easy to transport, quick to start up and run?
  • Integration: Does the project fit well into other systems, or is it sufficiently complex itself to be its own system?
  • Transparency: Can other people easily recreate your project now that you’ve shown how? Is your code open source?
  • Presentation: How well did you present your project in the video? Does the video convey your hack clearly and do you cover all the important points?
  • Usefulness: Popular vote on how many would people would use your hack. So keep your audience in mind!
  • Longevity: Can the project be improved / built upon?
  • Bonus Points: Contributions and bug fixes to the Docker 1.12 Github repository

Docker Docker is an open-source project to easily create lightweight, portable, self-sufficient containers from any application. The same container that a developer builds and tests on a laptop can run at scale, in production, on VMs, bare metal, OpenStack clusters, public clouds and more.
