We had such a great time attending and speaking at LinuxCon and ContainerCon North America, that we are doing it again next week in Berlin – only bigger and better this time! Make sure to come visit us at booth #D38 and check out the awesome Docker sessions we have lined up:


Solomon Hykes, Docker’s Founder and CTO, will kick off LinuxCon with the first keynote at 9:25. If you aren’t joining us in Berlin, you can live stream his and the other keynotes by registering here.


Tuesday October 4th:

11:15 – 12:05 Docker Captain Adrian Mouat will deliver a comparison of orchestration tools including Docker Swarm, Mesos/Marathon and Kubernetes.

12:15 – 1:05 Patrick Chanezon and David Chung from Docker’s technical team along with Docker Captain and maintainer Phil Estes will demonstrate how to build distributed systems without Docker, using Docker plumbing projects, including RunC, containerd, swarmkit, hyperkit, vpnkit, datakit.

2:30 – 3:20 Docker’s Mike Goelzer will introduce the audience to Docker Services in Getting Started with Docker Services, explain what they are and how to use them to deploy multi-tier applications. Mike will also cover load balancing, service discovery, scaling, security, deployment models, and common network topologies.

3:30 – 4:20 Stephen Day, Docker Technical Staff, will introduce SwarmKit: Docker’s Simplified Model for Complex Orchestration. Stephen will dive into the model driven design and demonstrate how the components fit together to build a user-friendly orchestration system designed  to handle modern applications.

3:30 – 4:20 Docker’s Paul Novarese will dive into User namespace and Seccomp support in Docker Engine, covering new features that respectively allow users to run Containers without elevated privileges and provide different containment methods.  

3:30 – 4:20 Docker Captain Laura Frank will show how to use Docker Engine, Registry and Compose to quickly and efficiently test software in her session: Building Efficient Parallel Testing Platforms with Docker.


Wednesday October 5th:

2:30 – 3:20 Docker Captain Phil Estes goes into details on why companies are choosing to use containers because of their security – not in spite of it. In How Secure is your Container? A Docker Engine Security Update, Phil will demonstrate recent additions to the Docker engine in 2016 such as user namespaces and seccomp and how they continue to enable better container security and isolation.

3:40 – 4:30 Aaron Lehmann, Docker Technical Staff, will cover Docker Orchestration: Beyond the Basics and discuss best practices for running a cluster using Docker Engine’s orchestration features – from getting started to keeping a cluster perfomant, secure, and reliable.

4:40 – 5:30 Docker’s Riyaz Faizullabhoy and Lily Guo will deliver When The Going Gets Tough, Get TUF Going! The Update Framework (TUF) helps developers secure new or existing software update systems. In this session, you will learn the attacks that TUF protects against and how it actually does so in a usable manner.

Thursday October 6th:

10:50 – 11:40 Docker Technical Staff Drew Erny will explain the mechanisms used in the core Docker Engine orchestration platform to tolerate failures of services and machines, from cluster state replication and leader-election to container re-scheduling logic when a host goes down in his session Orchestrating Linux Containers while Tolerating Failures.

11:50 – 12:40 Docker’s Amir Chaudhry will explain Unikernels: When you Should and When you Shouldn’t to help you weigh the pros and cons of using unikernels and help you decide when when it may be appropriate to consider a library OS for your next project.

18:45: Docker Berlin meetup: Patrick Chanezon: What’s new with Docker, covering Docker announcements from the past 6 months, with a demo of the latest and greatest Docker products for dev and ops.

Friday October 7th:

9:00am – 12:00 pm Docker Captain Neependra Khare will lead a Tutorial on Comparing Container Orchestration Tools.

1:00 pm – 5:00 pm In this 3 hour tutorial, Jerome Petazzoni will teach attendees how to Orchestrate Containers in Production at Scale with Docker Swarm.

In addition to our Docker talks, we have an amazing Docker Berlin meetup lined up just for you on Thursday October 6th. The meetup kicks off with Patrick Chanezon, a member of technical staff at Docker, will cover Docker announcements from the past 6 months and demo the latest and greatest Docker products for dev and ops. Then,  Paul J. Adams,  Engineering Manager at, will demonstrate how easy it is to setup and manage a Crate database cluster using Docker Engine and Swarm Mode.
