1. Mobycraft - Docker in 8-bit by Aditya Gupta 

Mobycraft is a Minecraft client-side mod to manage and visualize Docker containers in Minecraft. This mod can be installed in any standard Minecraft client and allow young kids to learn Docker fundamentals in a fun way. It allowed a 13-year old boy to apply his Minecraft modding skills to pick up Docker concepts such as Engine, Machine, Swarm, and Remote API.

This project became a great bonding experience between a father and a son. It allowed them to engage in fun and geeky conversations, such as code reviews and tooling discussion, and thereby building memories for a lifetime.

2. "workstation up" - Docker Development at Flow by Mike Roth

Docker is an integral part of Flow's technology stack, supporting everything from a developer's local environment to Production containers in AWS.  

"Workstation" has become central to a developer's toolset at Flow, giving them the ability to bring up/down a service, along with any upstream/downstream dependencies, in a single, simple command implemented with GOlang CLI. For example, developers can run “workstation up --app www” - and reliably have the www app running along with its dozens of transitive dependencies. It truly is reliable - requiring no additional configuration - and just continues to work.

The team has recently transitioned to Docker for Mac Beta and just love referencing containers via localhost!
