DockerCon EU 2015: Site is Live with First Confirmed Speakers

¡Hola Mundo!

We are excited to share with you the DockerCon Europe 2015 website with helpful information for the upcoming event in Barcelona, including the first batch of speakers.


The Call for Proposals (CFP) closed at the beginning of this week, and our review committee is now digging into the 393 submissions. A very big thank you is due to the 303 individuals who submitted proposals for DockerCon Europe 2015. Without your contributions we would not be able to execute DockerCon. 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. No matter your level of expertise with Docker or the size of your company, we’re confident that you will find useful content the community committee has selected for you. 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.

New at DockerCon EU 2015

We surveyed attendees after DockerCon San Francisco in June and found that there was a need to add more in-depth technical tracks – and that’s just what we did. This year at DockerCon Europe, we will introduce an improved Hands-on Labs program (stay tuned for more details) as well as a strong focus on technical breakout sessions. Here is a first look at just a few of our speakers for our newly curated Black Belt Tech Track:

Kernel load-balancing for Docker containers using IPVS


by Andrey Sibiryov, Senior Infrastructure Engineer, Uber

Many companies use expensive proprietary hardware and software to provide load-balancing and routing for their users and services. Andrey will demonstrate how the same or even exceeding performance and feature sets can be achieved using an open-source technology which has been a part of the mainline Linux kernel for over a decade – IPVS. Specifically, you’ll see how IPVS can be used to automatically configure load balancing and routing for Docker containers using a simple Go daemon and a Docker plugin.


How to be successful running Docker in Production

H9Zj_7bJby John Fiedler, Sr. Director of Engineering Operations, SalesforceIQ

John’s presentation will cover his lessons learned from running Docker in Production @ SalesforceIQ. Learn how to scale your registry using AWS and S3. Should you use Device Mapper or AUFS? Why run Swarm, Mesos, Kubernetes, or neither. Finally, know how persistent storage (Kafka, Cassandra, or SQL) can be run successfully with Docker in Production

His team focuses on Docker based solutions to power their SaaS infrastructure and developer operations.


Tor + Docker = Anonymous <3


By Jessie Frazelle, Core Engineer, Docker

This talk is inspired by the series of blog posts Jessie wrote. This talk will cover running tor relays in containers, routing all traffic through tor in a container, running a tor socks proxy in a container, and lastly running a Docker native networking plugin to route all container traffic through tor.


Other confirmed DockerCon Europe 2015 speakers include Solomon Hykes, Ben Golub, Marianna Tessel, Arnaud Porterie and Scott Johnston.



Be sure to keep up to date with everything happening at DockerCon Europe. Here is the overall agenda for the conference. We will update this with more details as the CFP Review Committee finalizes chosen speakers and abstracts.

The tracks for DockerCon 2015 will be organized by the following themes:

Docker, Docker, Docker
Use Cases
Black Belt Tech
Wild Card

Other tracks include:

Hands-on Tutorials
Ask the Experts (bring your issues and questions – we’ve got you covered)
Contributor Zone



Are you looking for that extra dose of Docker? Then you should attend the official Docker training course on Wednesday November 18th. Through instructor-led discussion and interactive, hands-on exercises, participants will understand the more advanced topics required to deploy Docker in Production. Learn more here and get your tickets soon before they sell out!



Big thank you to all of our wonderful sponsors who have signed up so far and are helping in numerous ways to bring DockerCon to life. Be sure to chat with each sponsor during the conference to find out how they contribute to the ever-growing Docker ecosystem.
