At A Glance: The Mid-Atlantic + Government Docker Summit

Katie Strange

Last week, Docker hosted our 4th annual Mid-Atlantic and Government Docker Summit, a one-day technology conference held on Wednesday, May 29 near Washington, DC. Over 425 attendees in the public and private sector came together to share and learn about the trends driving change in IT from containers, cloud and DeVops. Specifically, the presenters shared content on topics including Docker Enterprise, our industry-leading container platform, Docker’s Kubernetes Service, Container Security and more.

Attendees were a mix of technology users and IT decision makers: everyone from developers, systems admins and architects to Sr. leaders and CTOs.

Summit Recap by the Numbers:
  • 428 Registrations
  • 16 sessions
  • 7 sponsors
  • 3 Tracks (Tech, Business and Workshops)
Keynotes

Highlights include a keynote by Docker’s EVP of Customer Success, Iain Gray, and a fireside chat by the former US CTO and Insight Ventures Partner, Nick Sinai, and current Federal US CIO, Suzette Kent.

The fireside highlighted top of mind issues for Kent and how that aligns with the White House IT Modernization Report; specifically modernization of current federal IT infrastructure and preparing and scaling the workforce. Kent mentioned, “The magic of IT modernization is marrying the technology with the people and the mission.” And that’s exactly what her efforts support:“What’s being doing inside the federal government and serving the entire population of the American people is the largest technology transformation, with the most valuable data, in the world.”

Session Content

This year we had three tracks – business, technical and workshops – with presentations from Docker, ecosystem partners, customers and Docker captains to drive discussions, technology deep dives and hands on tutorials. Attendees loved having varying options to dive into from business to technical, beginner to advanced.
