In Memoriam: Ian Murdock

Dear friends and members of the open source community,

It is with great sadness that we inform you that Ian Murdock passed away on Monday night. This is a tragic loss for his family, for the Docker community, and the broader open source world; we all mourn his passing. To Ian’s children, family and loved ones, we offer our full support and deepest sympathies.  https://blog.docker.com/2015/12/ian-murdock/
