Shippable hosts first Docker meetup in India

Shippable is proud to be the organizer and host of the first Docker meetup in India on January 19, 2014 in Bengaluru India. Sign up for the meetup here.

We decided to Dockerize our software development workflow a few months ago, and we’ve never looked back since. We can develop faster, integrate faster, release faster. So much so, we also swapped out LXCs and started using Docker containers to run your build and test workloads on Shippable

Containerized software development is the future and it’s happening at Shippable. Come join us for a fun evening and share your Docker experiences with us.

We are the Yankees… If you want to bat, go join the Devil Rays

2010 was a fabulous year. We had just shipped a massively successful product called ‘Kinect’ and my team at Microsoft was busy celebrating with no thought to what the future might bring. 

I was celebrating with everyone else, but I had one more reason. In 2008, a CVP (corporate vice president) had told me – “Don’t dream too big. Microsoft is like the New York Yankees – the starting 9 have already been decided. You should be glad to just be a part of the team. If you want to bat, go join the Devil Rays.” I had proven him wrong by dreaming bigger and advancing my career quite nicely in the Kinect team.
