Today we are very happy to announce DockerCon 2015, the second edition of the official Docker conference organized by Docker, Inc in the United States. The conference will take place in San Francisco, at the the San Francisco Marriott Marquis on June 22nd and June 23rd, 2015.
With more than 400 people on the wait list for both DockerCon 2014 and DockerCon Europe and due to popular demand, we decided to significantly increase the number of attendees to 2000 people. While we want to preserve the ambiance and simplicity of the first DockerCon, increasing the number of attendees, speakers and sponsors seems necessary to reflect Docker’s blooming ecosystem and community.
The official website is still under construction as we are still working on DockerCon Europe, but today we can announce that the vast majority of the Docker team will be present as well as incredible speakers from the Docker community.
DockerCon 2015 will be a two-day Docker-centric conference gathering Docker experts, contributors and partners from various countries and fields of study. In addition to the classic Docker use cases (i.e Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, Cross Cloud Deployment and Portability, Agile scaling, Testing, PaaS, etc), we hope to receive submissions from speakers who (we know) have been using Docker for Bioinformatics analysis, Radio Astronomy, Energy data transmission and more. So without waiting for the website to be ready, we’re thrilled to announce that the Call For Papers opens today.
We will also be speaking about the future of Docker from quality & security improvements to new features and projects around authentication, provenance, networking, composition, clustering, etc. There will be plenty of talks for a large audience of Developers, SysAdmins as well as C-level executives whether they are newbies or seasoned users.
Following the success of the Docker Global Hack Day #2, we are organizing a 2 days Hackathon during the week-end prior to DockerCon 2015 and full day of training following the conference. Led by our team of Docker experts, this training will be the best way to get up to speed with the latest features, patterns and best practices announced during the conference.
