We've teamed up with TrueAbility to present The Docker Puzzle Challenge. Using Docker administration skills, those participating will attempt to solve a jigsaw puzzle for bragging rights on our leaderboard (and prizes). Besides some good fun, we're hoping to attract those interested in Linux and containerization to our open positions. The contest runs from Nov 1 - 30: By the end of the contest, the Top 10 performers will be guaranteed an interview with DigitalOcean.
Our metadata service is live! This enables Droplets to query information about themselves, and allows the use of CloudInit to bootstrap new servers. This is significant for users who want to improve the automation of their server provisioning process. As there are several products and services tied into this release, we want to provide a quick overview to get users up and running.
