Five Reasons to Attend DockerCon 2017

Written by

Are you ready for DockerCon 2017 in Austin, TX?  The event takes place April 17th-20th, 2017 at the Austin Convention Center. 

DockerCon is a community and container industry conference for makers and operators of next generation distributed apps built with containers. The three-day conference is jam packed with 100+ DockerCon speakers, 60+ breakout sessions, 11 workshops, hands on labs, and an expo hall that's filled with Docker ecosystem innovators ready to show off their wares and answer questions.

There's something for everyone -- Developer, IT Ops, or Enterprise; Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced Docker user.

Want to learn more?  Check out the DockerCon 2017 agenda.

The Docker team has also put together a list of the Top 5 Reasons you should join them at this year's event: 

  1. The.Best.Content. From beginner to deep dive, DockerCon brings together the brightest minds to talk about their passion. Those passions range from tracing containers, building containers from scratch, monitoring and storage, to creating effective images.
  2. Experts Everywhere. Want to meet the maintainers and tech leads of the Docker project? DockerCon! The community members that put together the coolest IoT hack to make walking in between sessions fun? DockerCon! What about chatting directly with the developers and IT professionals at Fortune 500 enterprises that are transforming their organizations by using Docker? DockerCon!
  3. A Hallway Track like you’ve never experienced. DockerCon took conference networking to a new level last year with Bump Up. We can’t wait to share what we have planned this year that will make connecting, learning, and sharing with other like-minded attendees one of the most valuable takeaways of the event. 
  4. DockerCon For All. DockerCon will always be an open and inclusive event for all. We are excited to announce the launch of this year’s DockerCon Diversity Scholarship. The scholarship’s purpose is to provide financial support and guidance to members of the Docker Community who are traditionally underrepresented through on-site mentorship and a scholarship to attend DockerCon.
  5. Community & Docker Swag. As a part of Docker’s community, you already know that it rocks, thanks to you! Now just imagine the energy when 5,000 of us are in one room doing what we love! Now imagine we all just got the most amazing Docker swag to top it off! We are talking backpacks, t-shirts, umbrellas, scarves, LEGO whales – this year will be no exception.

Well?  What do you think?  Ready to register for DockerCon 2017?
