Black Duck Open Source Rookies of the Year awards have been nominated for 8 years now. Each year, Black Duck will review the world of open source and recognize top new projects launched during the past year. Docker was awarded in 2014, Kubernetes was awarded in 2015 and Kontena was awarded earlier this year. It's really been amazing journey for us!

The folks at Black Duck made an interview with me for a blog post about Kontena. I really enjoyed the way how they summarized the Kontena project:

The Kontena project delivers complex technologies packaged as a simple to use platform for developers who want to create and run their stuff in containers.

Among many questions, they asked how the project got started, what makes it different, technologies we use and how did we build the community around the project.
