Open Forum Track at DockerCon 2016 Includes Curated and Open BoF Sessions and Panels!

Ready for another new addition to DockerCon this year? The Open Forum track is brand new to this year’s conference agenda! This room is our unique version of hybrid Birds-of-a-Feather sessions and interactive panel discussions. The goal is for a highly interactive conversational room around some guided topics. Be sure to stop in at some point during the conference and let us know what you think!

Learn Docker at Hands-on Labs at DockerCon 2016

At last year’s DockerCon EU 2015, we offered Hands-on Labs to attendees for the first time and the feedback was really positive! So much so, we are stoked to announce that we’re bringing them back for DockerCon 2016 coming up in Seattle on June 19-21.

Announcing the Final Speakers for DockerCon 2016

We are happy to announce the final round of DockerCon speakers! But first, a big thank you to everyone who submitted a speaking proposal! It was a difficult task for the DockerCon Review Committee to select the final conference sessions for DockerCon 2016 from the 570+ submissions. We encourage everyone who submitted to present their talks to their local meetup groups – please feel free to reach out with any questions! And now, meet the final round of DockerCon speakers selected by the DockerCon Community Review Committee.

Submit Now for the DockerCon Cool Hack Challenge!

Those of you who have attended previous DockerCons or watched the videos already know that with the help of the community, the Docker team tries it’s best to end each conference with a bang! From Docker running on small IoT hardware devices (Raspberry Pi) to the biggest iron (IBM mainframes) to live migrating a Quake container around the world or running unikernels in Docker, DockerCon closing keynotes, also known as Moby’s Cool Hacks, aim to give everyone a sneak peak into what’s next for the Docker community. In case you missed it, check out the videos below from the previous DockerCons to see the cool hacks and demos that stood out of the Docker team and Community.

The moment you have all been waiting for is finally here…the DockerCon 2016 Agenda is live! Whether you are a Docker beginner or a container ninjas, we’re confident that DockerCon will have the right content for you. With 8 tracks and more than 80 sessions by corporate heavyweights such as Salesforce, Uber or GE to smaller companies like Riot Games or HealthDirect, DockerCon 2016 will cover a wide range of Docker use cases and topics. If you plan on joining us in Seattle in T-minus 42 days (a magical number in Docklandia), you can download the official DockerCon App and start building your agenda today. Fun fact: DoubleDutch runs on Docker too so your DockerCon experience is now Dockerized! Below are some useful tips and tricks for getting the most out of the DockerCon App.

Announcing (Even) More Speakers for DockerCon 2016

A quick note about the selection process: this year the Review Committee reviewed 570+ proposals using a double blind process, which means proposals were reviewed just by their abstract, outline and takeaways. From the initial review, we selected the top 100 proposals and began conversations with the authors of the most promising talks. We’re not quite done yet, but we expect to publish the schedule soon! If your proposal was not accepted, please consider submitting for a local meetup or another conference. Once again, we’d like to thank everyone who took the time to both submit and review the proposals. Without further ado, here are the next round of DockerCon speakers selected by the DockerCon Community Review Committee.
