With that, we are thrilled to announce our first speakers for DockerCon San Francisco, April 29 – May 2.

2018 Docker Community Awards

    The Docker community has been at the heart of Docker’s success from the start. We are constantly in awe of the dedication and passion of the practitioners – users, customers, partners, contributors and maintainers – who make up our community. Early in December at DockerCon Barcelona we were humbled to honor a Docker Captain and a few very special Community Leaders whose activities over the past year have made a tremendous difference to us all. Together, the Docker Community has achieved so much, we can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store. Tip of the Captains Hat Award Bret Fisher   Docker Captain (and Community Leader) Bret Fisher was nominated to receive this inaugural award by his fellow Captains because his contribution and leadership serve as an example of what it means to be a Docker Captain.

Simplifying Kubernetes with Docker Compose and Friends

Today we’re happy to announce we’re open sourcing our support for using Docker Compose on Kubernetes. We’ve had this capability in Docker Enterprise for a little while but as of today you will be able to use this on any Kubernetes cluster you choose. Why do I need Compose if I already have Kubernetes? The Kubernetes API is really quite large. There are more than 50 first-class objects in the latest release, from Pods and Deployments to ValidatingWebhookConfiguration and ResourceQuota. This can lead to a verbosity in configuration, which then needs to be managed by you, the developer. Let’s look at a concrete example of that. The Sock Shop is the canonical example of a microservices application. It consists of multiple services using different technologies and backends, all packaged up as Docker images. It also provides example configurations using different tools, including both Continue reading…

Introducing Docker Desktop Enterprise

Nearly 1.4 million developers use Docker Desktop every single day because it is the simplest and easiest way for container-based development. Docker Desktop provides the Docker Engine with Swarm and Kubernetes orchestrators right on the desktop, all from a single install. While this is great for an individual user, in enterprise environments administrators often want to automate the Docker Desktop installation and ensure everyone on the development team has the same configuration following enterprise requirements and creating applications based on architectural standards.     Docker Desktop Enterprise is a new desktop offering that is the easiest, fastest and most secure way to create and deliver production-ready containerized applications. Developers can work with frameworks and languages of their choice, while IT can securely configure, deploy and manage development environments that align to corporate standards and practices. This enables organizations to rapidly Continue reading…

DockerCon Hallway Track Is Back – Schedule One Today

    The Hallway Track is coming back to DockerCon Europe in Barcelona. DockerCon Hallway Track is an innovative platform that helps you find like-minded people to meet one-on-one and schedule knowledge sharing conversations based on shared topics of interest. We’ve partnered with e180 to provide the next level of conference attendee networking.

After the success at past DockerCons, we’re happy to grow this idea further in Barcelona. DockerCon is all about learning new things and connecting with the community. The Hallway Track will help you meet and share knowledge with Docker Staff, other attendees, Speakers, and Docker Captains through structured networking.
