Windows Server 2016 will come with commercial support for Docker Engine

 Microsoft loves to talk about how we are now living in a “cloud first, mobile first” world, but in this world, there is still plenty of room left for Windows Server. Today, at its Ignite conference in Atlanta, the company announced that Windows Server 2016 will be available for purchase on October 1 and will then ship in mid-October. That’s pretty much in line with… Read More

Introducing Docker for Windows Server 2016

Today, Microsoft is announcing general availability of Windows Server 2016 at the Ignite conference in Atlanta. For Windows developers and IT-pros, the most exciting new Windows feature is containers, and containers on Windows Server 2016 are powered by Docker.
This blog post details the technical innovations that went into making Docker containers run natively on Windows and attempts to explain the significance of the achievement. See the companion blog posts on how to build your first Windows container and the post detailing Docker Inc. and Microsoft’s commercial partnership to support Docker on Windows.
The first version of Docker was released in 2013, and in the 3 years since launch, Docker has completely transformed how Linux developers and ops build, ship and run apps. With Docker Engine and containers now available natively on Windows, developers and IT-pros can begin the same transformation for Windows-based apps and infrastructure and start reaping the same benefits:

Rebase and merge pull requests

The merge button on pull requests supports two great workflows
with merge commits and commit squashing.
Now you can use the merge button to rebase and merge your changes, too.

When you select the new “Rebase and merge” option,
the commits from the pull request’s branch are rebased on to the tip
of the base branch, and then the base branch itself is fast forwarded
to this newly rebased head. Rebases automatically set the committer of
the rebased commits to the current user, while keeping authorship
information intact.
The pull request’s branch will not be modified by this operation.

If a rebase can’t be performed due to conflicts, we’ll let you know so
you can manually resolve them as necessary.

As with “Squash and merge”, repository administrators can decide whether they
want to allow this new option on the repository settings page.

Learn more about rebase and merge in our Help docs.

Introducing .NET Standard

In my last post, I talked about how we want to make porting to .NET Core easier. In this post, I’ll focus on how we’re making this plan a reality with .NET Standard. We’ll cover which APIs we plan to include, how cross-framework compatibility will work, and what all of this means for .NET Core.
If you’re interested in details, this post is for you. But don’t worry if you don’t have time or you’re not interested in details: you can just read the TL;DR section.
For the impatient: TL;DR
.NET Standard solves the code sharing problem for .NET developers across all platforms by bringing all the APIs that you expect and love across the environments that you need: desktop applications, mobile apps & games, and cloud services:
.NET Standard is a set of APIs that all .NET platforms have to implement. This unifies the .NET platforms and prevents future fragmentation.
.NET Standard 2.0 will

Restoring YC’s Xerox Alto day 8: it boots

We’ve been restoring a Xerox Alto from the 1970s for several months, and we finally got it to boot and run some programs!
There’s still some hardware debugging ahead of us, since the Alto drops into the debugger for many programs,
but we’re quite happy to see the system running. In this post, I describe our latest debugging session and show some programs running on the Alto.

The Xerox Alto, successfully booted and listing the files on the disk. The diagonal strips are an artifact of photographing the CRT and do not appear on the display.

For background, the Alto was a revolutionary computer designed at Xerox PARC in 1973
to investigate personal computing. It introduced the GUI, Ethernet and laser printers to the world, among other things.
Y Combinator received an Alto from computer visionary Alan Kay and
I’m helping restore the system, along with
