Your Docker Agenda in May

April was quite an eventful month for the Docker Community. By the end of April, over 1,200 people attended the 24 birthday events organized by the Docker community in 11 countries. With the overwhelming number of contributions we received, we were able to donate $25,000 to the Oceanic Society. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who dedicated their time and expertise to make these events a success.
