Founder Solomon Hykes Leaving Docker

Solomon Hykes, the founder and former CTO of Docker, Inc., today announced his departure from the company.

According to his Docker blog post, Hykes is leaving to make room for a CTO with more experience, “shipping and supporting software for the largest companies in the world.” Hykes calls the departure “bittersweet,” but emphasizes how “incredibly lucky” he is that his “life’s work” has become “one of the largest open-source communities ever assembled.”

Hykes will continue as an active board member and major share holder, and will aid in finding a CTO to be his replacement.
