„David Hall wurde als Gewinner der Autos2050 Auszeichnung gewählt, da er im vergangenen Jahr entscheidende Beiträge für die Automobilbranche geleistet hat“, sagte Dave Schwietert, Interim President und CEO der Auto Alliance. „Davids Erfindungsreichtum und Produktinnovationen in der Fahrzeugautonomie und Fahrerassistenz bringen enorme gesellschaftliche Vorteile, indem sie mehr Sicherheit für motorisierte Fahrzeuge, ein besseres Pendeln und eine gesteigerte Mobilität für Personen bieten, die nicht fahren können.“

Hall wird seine Autos2050 Auszeichnung im Rahmen des Autos2050® Events erhalten. Vor der Preisverleihung wird am 2. April 2019 im Andrew Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C., USA, eine Konferenz mit Schwerpunkt auf dem Ineinandergreifen von öffentlicher Politik und Automobiltechnologie stattfinden.

„Ich freue mich, jemanden lächeln zu sehen, wenn er oder sie mein Produkt benutzt und Freude daran hat“, beantwortete Hall die Frage nach seiner Erfindung. „Es ist mir eine Ehre, von meinen Fachkollegen diese wertvolle Auszeichnung verliehen zu bekommen. Die zentrale Aufgabe von Velodyne war es stets, die Fahrzeugautonomie voranzubringen und gleichzeitig die Technologiekosten, Annehmlichkeiten und die Sicherheit des Fahrens zu verbessern.“

Containerized software is riding a wave of growth, according to latest RightScale survey. At Sematext we see this growth trend via our Docker monitoring adoption and via Sematext Docker Agent popularity on Docker Hub, where it crossed 1M+ pulls line. This rapid rise of containers now makes Docker the top DevOps tool among those included in RightScale survey. Overall Docker adoption surged to 35 percent, while Kubernetes adoption doubled, going from 7% in 2016 to 14% percent.
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
