Docker Global Hack Day at TechEd Europe 2014

On October 15th, Docker, Inc and Microsoft Corp announced an exciting set of joint initiatives with the headline that the two companies will be collaborating on Docker Engine for Windows Server to create one standard for containers across all enterprise operating systems.  The partnership also covers Microsoft’s support of Docker’s open orchestration APIs which ensure portability for multi-container applications.  For the first time, developers will be able to directly work with a pre-configured Docker Engine in Azure and immediately begin work on creating a Dockerized application.  This new joint capability will be demonstrated live at Docker’s Global Hack Day on October 30th .

To celebrate this new collaboration and capability, we decided to organize the Barcelona edition of the Docker Global Hack Day in collaboration with Microsoft TechEd Europe.
