Last month, Docker turned five! In celebration of this milestone, we turned the spotlight on our amazing global community of customers, users, Community Leaders, Captains, mentors, partners and sponsors, and asked them to reflect on their Docker learning journey. Everyone came together to celebrate how far they had come, think about where they would like to go and take that next step towards reaching their goal. We had a lot of fun during the #dockerbday with the Quebec #Docker community! Thanks to @ingeno for sponsoring the event, @tnazare for the cake and for being an awesome mentor!  #dockerselfie #DockerQC pic.twitter.com/YZZNkWfWjq…
