Captains are Docker ambassadors (not Docker employees) and their genuine love of all things Docker has a huge impact on the Docker community – whether they are blogging, writing books, speaking, running workshops, creating tutorials and classes, offering support in forums, or organizing and contributing to local events – they make Docker’s mission of democratizing technology possible. Whether you are new to Docker or have been a part of the community for awhile, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Docker Captains with your challenges, questions, speaking requests and more.

Docker Online Meetup # 41: Docker Captains Share their Tips and Tricks for Built In Docker Orchestration

It’s been nearly two weeks since Docker released Docker 1.12 as generally available for production environments, introducing a number of new features and concepts to the Docker project.

Docker Captains are technology experts who have been awarded the distinction of being a Docker Captain in part because of their passion for sharing their Docker knowledge with others. So, we’ve invited three of our Docker Captains to speak at the next Docker Online Meetup on August 31st and share their tips and tricks for using Docker 1.12.
