What is Docker?

Docker helps developers bring their ideas to life by conquering the complexity of app development. We simplify and accelerate development workflows with an integrated dev pipeline and through the consolidation of application components. Actively used by millions of developers around the world, Docker Desktop and Docker Hub provide unmatched simplicity, agility and choice. (source)

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Docker stats come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
