The runaway success of Kubernetes has created an ecosystem of tools to simplify the complexity of application development and deployment.
The majority of these tools exist as open-source projects maintained by a community of enthusiasts. However some, due to their popularity and the importance of the role they fulfill, gain additional recognition through adoption by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

While our minds have already shifted ahead to Dockercon Europe, there was one announcement in particular from Dockercon2018 that everyone should take notice.

This pivotal business decision for Docker Inc. demonstrates that they are listening to their customers and should allow them to continue to be the go-to container platform for enterprises across the globe.
