Your Docker Agenda for AWS re:Invent 2015

Headed to Las Vegas for AWS re:Invent 2015 tomorrow? So are we! Stop by booth #445 to say hi to the team, learn more about Docker and AWS and pick up some cool swag.

We know there are so many great breakout sessions at this year’s conference but we’ve compiled our list of the top must-attend Docker talks at AWS re:Invent 2015 below.

Our best advice is to sign up for Jérôme’s talk now – the Docker talk by Docker last year was so packed that the organizers added another Docker talk from the Docker team! Jérôme’s talk is the only Docker talk by Docker this year so make sure you sign up now to save a seat!

You’ve been warned: sign up now before it’s completely booked!

There are plenty of great events in Docker communities around the world scheduled for October! From meetups to conference talks and webinars to workshops, check out our list of the events coming up this month:


Docker Basics Webinar Q&A: Understanding Union Filesystems, Storage and Volumes

Our latest Docker webinar is part of a three session series that dives into Docker storage from outlining the basics, to considerations for planning and best practices.  Our first session goes back to the basics to explain how images, storage and volumes work in Docker.

There are two more sessions coming up about Docker Storage – register now to save your seat!

Docker Storage Considerations – October 13th at 10:00 am PDT
Persistent Storage, Data and Docker – October 27th at 10:00 PDT

DockerCon EU 2015: 3rd Round of Black Belt Speakers

dceu15_logoThe tracks in our Black Belt Track at this year’s DockerCon EU 2015 are going to be awesome! Based on feedback from DockerCon 2015 attendees, we curated this track to bring a strong focus on advanced technical sessions to the agenda.

Last week, we announced the first two round of speakers including Gilt’s Kevin O’Riordan, Uber’s Andrey Sibiryov, SalesforceIQ’s John Fiedler, Microsoft’s John Starks and our very own Jessie Frazelle, Arnaud Portrerie and Jérôme Petazzoni.

Today, we are excited to announce the third batch of speakers for that same Black Belt Track. Check out these three additional sessions below and stay tuned for more exciting DockerCon EU 2015 announcements:

Four New Official Repos in Docker Hub: Gazebo,, Joomla and Redmine

We’re excited to announce four new Official Repos that we added to Docker Hub in August and September. These repos are the newest additions to a growing library of curated content maintained by Docker and our partners.

Docker users have pulled Official Repos nearly 130 million times for use in both development and production contexts – a 63% increase since late July!

Welcome GazeboRocket.ChatJoomla, and Redmine to the Docker library!



And the winners of Docker Global Hack Day #3 are…

The quality of the Docker hacks and amount of participation from the Docker community was simply phenomenal! Over 2,000 community members attended events around the world and 50 meetup groups organized local editions of this Docker Hack Day #3. Kudos to the Docker community and Docker meetup organizers for helping organize this hands-on event!


Forty-two valid projects were submitted for final judging before last week’s deadline and the jury composed of Docker experts had a difficult time choosing Local Edition winners! Click here to see the list of Local Edition winners.

Voting for the global winners closed yesterday and the results are in! The Docker community voted through social channels and GitHub for their favorite hack projects and we tallied up the scores. Congratulations to the winning teams who received the most number of votes. Here are the winners of Docker Global Hack Day #3 by category:

DockerCon EU 2015: Hands-On Labs

We know how busy everyone gets at DockerCon – there’s so much to do between conference talks, meeting members of the community and chatting with sponsors! We took all of the feedback from our pilot Docker Tutorials at DockerCon 2015 and created a new set of trainings for a better attendee experience. New at DockerCon EU 2015 are Hands-On Labs geared to help attendees learn the ins and out of Docker!


This series of Hands-On Labs will provide conference attendees with the opportunity to gain experience with various Docker features and use cases. Each Lab runs between 15-30 minutes, covers both introductory and more advanced topics and is self-paced so attendees can learn at their own speed when they have time during the day.

Attendees simply need to come in (with their laptop!) and complete the exercises that interest them. Docker staff will be on hand to help answer any questions – just raise your hand!

Worried about WiFi bandwidth? Don’t worry, we got that covered: each seat will have a dedicated hard-line internet connection so attendees can focus on learning not loading.

Check out the list of currently planned Hands-On Labs at DockerCon EU 2015:


DockerCon Europe CFP summary and 2nd round of Black Belt speakers!

The CFP for DockerCon Europe 2015 closed last week, and we were blown away by the quantity and quality of the submissions. Thank you to the 303 individuals who submitted talks – it’s going to be mighty difficult for the DockerCon Committee (composed of community members and Docker, Inc. employees) to select the talks to be presented at DockerCon EU 2015!

Check out this infographic that summarizes the major stats from this year’s DockerCon EU CFP submissions.


Congratulations to the Docker Global Hack Day #3 Local Edition Winners

Thank you to everyone who participated in Docker Global Hack Day #3!

Screen Shot 2015-09-17 at 6.07.42 PMOver 2,000 community members attend local meetups hosting Docker Global Hack Day #3 events. A big thank you to all of the sponsors who helped make those events possible!

The jury composed of Docker experts was quite impressed with the 42 hacks that were submitted for final judging!

We actually did receive 42 valid submissions so this Docker Global Hack Day #3 must be related to the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything!

We are excited to announce the winners of the Local Editions for Docker Global Hack Day #3. Each member of the winning teams will receive a custom Docker Global Hack Day #3 baseball shirt.

Now we need your help choosing the global winners!

Only votes cast on social media via this page will be counted towards the final judging for global winners.

We apologize for some earlier confusion regarding the social media votes – we are tracking each vote cast on that page to decide the global winner. 

To ensure complete fairness in this competition, the voting committee reserves the right to reassess the quality of the winning submissions, regardless of the category for which they were submitted. Stars on GitHub will also count towards the final selection of winners. The voting committee will award bonus points for their favorite submissions in addition to the social media voting from the Docker community.

We are very excited about the session possibilities for this year, and we look forward to sharing the final agenda with you all shortly.

At DockerCon EU 2015, you’ll have the opportunity to hear about all of the interesting ways developers, Ops, DevOps and Sysadmins are using Docker.

From use cases that feature Docker customers to Docker tutorials and advanced technical talks, DockerCon will offer each and every attendee a deep dive into the Docker Ocean.
