Meet Docker Enthusiasts Near You!

We’ve made it easier for you to find an event near you! As we continue to grow, we’ve been thinking of ways to better serve the Docker community and give more visibility to all the different events and activities available and to the people who organize them. In collaboration with the Docker Community Leaders (formally known as Meetup Organizers), we’re excited to launch a brand new event platform to better highlight local Docker communities and the awesome events happening all over the world. Check out the Docker Community event site!   From meetups to DockerCon and Docker hosted webinars to workshops, you’ll be sure to find something just for you! Instead of going to multiple places to find event information, it’s now all here in one convenient location on docker.com.  What is a Docker Local Chapter? Docker Local Chapters are user groups that host Continue reading…

Introducing Hallway Track: Learn from People Around You at DockerCon

Photo by: Youssef Shoufan at DockerCon Austin 2017 The DockerCon Hallway Track is coming to DockerCon Europe in Copenhagen. We’ve partnered with e180.co once again to deliver the next level of conference attendee networking. Together, we believe that education is a relationship, not an institution, and that a conversation can change someone’s life. After the success of our collaboration in Austin with Moby Mingle, we’re happy to be growing this idea further for Copenhagen. DockerCon is all about learning new things and connecting with the right people. The Hallway Track will help you meet and share knowledge with community members and practitioners at the conference.   So, what’s a Hallway Track? DockerCon Hallway Track is a one-on-one or group conversations based on topics of interest that you schedule with other attendees during DockerCon. Hallway Track’s recommendation algorithm curates an individualized selection of Hallway Track topics for each participant, Continue reading…

An Inside Look at the Docker Captains Program

Since launching the Docker Captains over a year ago, we’ve received a lot of questions: What is a Docker Captain? What do Captains do? How do I become a Captain? So who better to answer that than the Docker Captains themselves? At DockerCon Austin, we asked the Docker Captains to share their favorite thing about wearing the Captain’s hat. What is a Captain? Captains are Docker experts that are leaders in their communities, organizations or ecosystems. As Docker advocates, they are committed to sharing their knowledge and do so every chance they get! What do Captains do? Captains are advisors, ambassadors, coders, contributors, creators, tool builders, speakers, mentors, maintainers and super users and are required to be active stewards of Docker in order to remain in the program. In addition to sharing their knowledge with the community, Captains provide insight and Continue reading…

Docker Community Spotlight: Adina-Valentina Radulescu

Adina-Valentina Radulescu, a DevOps/Integration Engineer for Pentalog Romania, has been organizing meetups for not one but two meetup groups. In February of last year, Adina founded Docker Brasov and Docker Timisoara, and has since done an amazing job creating and fostering a sense of belonging in her community. This month, we’re happy to shine the community spotlight on Adina to learn more about her Docker story. Tell us about your first experience with Docker.  The first time I heard about Docker was back in 2014. I played around with Docker and I was impressed with the simplicity of integration so I wanted to learn more. I was able to attend DockerCon EU in 2015 in Barcelona where I completed some labs and attended the talks to learn as much as I could about Docker. It was a powerful feeling. Why did you start Docker Continue reading…

Mentorship in the Docker Community: How you can get involved

Mentorship is an important part of the Docker Community. Over the past few global event series like the Docker Birthday #3 and Mentor week last year, advanced users attended their local event and helped attendees work through training materials. As interest in mentorship continues to grow, we’re excited to grow our programs and provide more opportunities for the community to get involved. New this year at DockerCon, we organized a Mentor Summit for attendees to learn the ins and outs of being an awesome mentor both in industry and in the Docker Community. Check out the talks below and learn how you can get involved. Anna Osswoski – How to Mentor and be a Great One & Sebastiaan van Stijn – How To Contribute to Open Source   Jérôme Petazzoni – A DockerCon 2017 Recap: give a talk in your local Continue reading…

Docker Turns 4: Thank you Docker Community!

In case you missed it, this week we’re celebrating Docker’s 4th Birthday with meetups all over the world (check out #dockerbday on twitter). This feels like the right time to look back at the past 4 years and reflect on what makes the Docker Community so unique and vibrant: people, values, mentorship and learning opportunities. You can read our own Jérôme Petazzoni’s blog post for a more technical retrospective. Managing an open source project at that scale and preserving a healthy community doesn’t come without challenges. Last year, Arnaud Porterie wrote a very interesting 3-part series blog post on open source at Docker covering the different challenges associated with the People, the Process and the Tooling and Automation. The most important aspect of all being the people. Respect, fairness and openness are essential values required to create a welcoming environment for professionals and hobbyists alike.
