Last week, we brought the NYC Docker Compose community together at Work-Bench on Broadway for a very special event: the 2024 State of Compose with Han Yu. We met over 35 developers who regularly use Compose and chatted over drinks and pizza. For this meetup, we combined two of our favorite event types: conference-style talks about our favorite tools, and developer happy hours. It was certainly a night to remember and won’t be the last time we do something like this.

Benjie and Han talking about Docker Compose

Han Yu, Docker Compose’s PM, delivered an exceptional talk on where Compose stands in 2024. They started out by sharing what brought them to Docker a few years ago, how the Compose roadmap has evolved, and then showcased some new features from the last major release. While many of us like to stay up-to-date on the release notes, it was illuminating to see Han’s vision for the decisions the Compose team makes, and how each decision factors into enhancing the Compose developer experience. We especially enjoyed hearing the ways these features are shaped by user input and feedback.

After Han’s talk, we saw some great connections being made. It was cool to have our local team members attend, as well as some of our users and community members. Everyone at the event was a Docker Compose user in some capacity, which made for an easy and obvious icebreaker.

As for the final stats: we went through 5.5 of 6 pizzas and 26 of 32 beers. Not bad.
