Lets get together to talk about why we use Docker. We will have demos on the basic steps on when you first use Docker, some presentations and time for networking after the event.
Jan 9th: Docker Intro – Cambridge, MA
The importance of platform engineering is increasing. It has escaped the realm of devops reaching the entire team building increasingly mobile platforms tied to cloud services.

Jan 13th: Docker Meetup at 3DSIM Headquarters – Salt Lake City, UT
Amazon released ECS last year. Now that it is out of “beta” Ryan Walls, Engineering Manager at 3DSIM, will be presenting an overview of what it is and how to use it. Additionally, how to use ECS with Ansible will be covered. Time permitting we will try to get some hands on time, so bring your laptops.
Jan 14th: Docker Meetup at OnyxPoint – Baltimore, MD
We’ll discuss the latest information out of Docker CON EU (since we missed the December Meetup) and dive into a specific set of tools (Rancher, Sysdig and Logentries) which one of our members has utilized to work with Docker in production. IBM will provide pizza and beer. Special thanks to OnyxPoint for allowing us to invade their space for this meetup!
Jan 19th: Zero to Docker in Minutes – Harrisburg, PA
Docker and containers are the hot technology. Seems everywhere you turn, there’s a blog post, some software, or a “technologist” talking about Docker. What is it? What can it do? How difficult is it to use? Is it of any value to, say, a Microsoft developer? So many questions.
Jan 21st: Docker Meetup at GoPro – San Francisco, CA
Join us at GoPro to hear a talk from Patrick Chanezon on DockerCon EU. He will be recapping all of the announcements that were made in Barcelona during DockerCon and has a great presentation prepared for us!
Jan 21st: Docker at SCALE 14x – Los Angeles, CA
Join Docker at SCALE 14x this year in Los Angeles. Check out the “Advanced Docker concepts and container orchestration” workshop held by Jerome Petazzoni and John Willis’ beginner’s talk “Devopsing the Operating System.”
The Docker team will be at booth #712.
Jan 14th: Docker Meetup at The Cube Athens – Athens, Greece
Welcome the new year with a Meetup on Docker security. The Meetup will be split in two parts. Part one: How are containers built in the Kernel level. We’ll talk about namespaces, cgroups and the other goodies that the Kernel provides, so that processes living in containers can be isolated and respect resource limits. Part Two: Utilizing the Docker API and namespaces to secure our infrastructure. In the next part, we’ll talk about how we can leverage the Docker API and the Kernel resources we’ve talked about in order to enforce our limits and secure our infrastructure.
Jan 19th: Continuous Delivery and Docker – Belfast, United Kingdom
Docker has recently gained of attention with users enjoying the advantages that lightweight containers provide i.e. consistency, isolation and repeatability of environments. Also, continuous delivery as a software process is becoming increasingly popular and is concerned with reducing risk through its ability to deliver new features to users at any time during the development life-cycle.
Jan 21st: Docker Meetup at Codebase – Edinburgh, United Kingdom
The Docker Edinburgh takes place at the CodeBase event space, in Lady Lawson Street, from around 18h30 to 20h00, with further discussion afterwards in the pub! Cloudsoft will be sponsoring the meetup, and pizza and beer will be provided. Please let us know what sort of speakers or topics you would like to see at future Meetups, or if there are alternative formats like lightning talks that would prefer. We’re always looking for new speakers, so please get in touch if you have something you’d like to present about Docker or the wider DevOps community!
Jan 23rd: Docker Workshop at Tenwa – Katowice, Poland
Workshop One: Dockerize a To-Do List app. You are invited to join our first workshop for beginners. We will together “dockerize” a NodeJS To-Do List app. After this session, you will know: most Docker commands, the Dockerfile syntax, Dockerfile best practices (weight, security), data containers, docker-compose. We will progress step by step, during a live coding session, and help you as you dockerize the sample application. You will create multiple containers, reuse a few existing ones, separating concerns and processes (app, data, db).
Jan 30th: Docker for Developers talk at FOSDEM – Brussels, Belgium
Michael Hrivnak will be speaking at FOSDEM ’16. As a developer, there are many ways Docker can make you more productive, regardless of how your app gets deployed. In this session, you will learn practical strategies for using Docker, including how to: Run unit tests locally in multiple environments with almost no overhead. Make your integration tests easy for anyone to run by distributing them in a Docker image. Simulate advanced network topologies, especially for a service-oriented architecture. Make a Docker image in 5 minutes or less that produces builds from a consistent environment.
Jan 5th: Docker Meetup at BookMyShow – Mumbai, India
If you are a developers who is interested in learning more about the basics of how images, storage and volumes work in Docker, and how to handle data persistence for applications as they change, spin up and spin down and move across environments, this event is for you!
