Docker Founder Sets Up School to Help Next Generation of Developers

Few in technology would disagree about the impact that Docker container technology is having on the world of software development. Yet how did the founders of Docker actually learn how to code? It’s a question that the new Holberton School is aiming to answer.

The Holberton School is backed by $2 million in seed capital that was invested by Trinity Ventures, Jerry Yang (co-founder of Yahoo), Jonathan Boutelle (co-founder of Slideshare) and Solomon Hykes (co-founder of Docker). The CEO and co-founder of the Holberton School is Julien Barbier, who went to school with Hykes and was part of the founding team at Docker.
