After two and a half years, my contract with Docker Inc has finished.
Its been a blast – I’ve never worked in a startup before, and I was hired early enough to have a very broad scope of work – including supporting users, working as a maintainer and oss contributor, and leading the development of Boot2Docker (now replaced by Docker for Mac and Windows) – a micro Linux distribution with OSX and Windows installers to allow users on those platforms to use Docker.
Its been amazing seeing the inside of an incredibly dynamic, game-changing project that has succeeded in growing for the three years that its been around – TWiki was successful around the 2000, but never managed to convert in the way that Docker has.
I’ve spent the last week cleaning up my email, git repositories and getting started on the non-computer projects that have been languishing for the last 3 years – and started playing with the ESP8266 I have – Like I said to Nathan the other day, having a relaxing time writing C++ 🙂
Until I find the next big project, startup, or workplace?:
I’m available for short term Docker consultations and training courses. I’m in Brisbane – but I’m happy to talk to you about flying out to where you are.
