The Hallway Track at DockerCon is an innovative space designed to help facilitate those valuable conversations that come from chance hallway encounters. Instead of leaving it to chance, we’ve partnered with e180 to provide a platform that helps you find like-minded people to meet and learn from, discussing topics you are both interested in.
The Hallway Track is open Monday through Thursday, and it’s best to schedule your meetings in advance. Register for DockerCon and then follow these steps to log in and start scheduling your Hallway Tracks today:
The Hallway Track is your opportunity to meet and share knowledge with other attendees, Docker Staff, Speakers, and Docker Captains. Register for DockerCon today and look out for email instructions to log into the Hallway Track platform.
Arriving for early registration before the Welcome Reception on Monday? Continue reading
The Docker Pals program matches groups of attendees who are newer to DockerCon (the “Pals”) with an attendee who has been to one or more DockerCons (the “Guide”). Our goal is to help everyone at DockerCon feel comfortable and see what this amazing community has to offer. Both Pals and Guides find the experience rewarding! The first step in being a Guide is registering for DockerCon so if you haven’t yet, register here now!
Here’s what some of our Guides have said about the program:
“Conferences can be lonely if you don’t know anyone, or are the only person from your company. Docker Pals provides stress free opportunity to connect with people and get to know them.”
“A fantastic experience to meet new people and help them to enjoy DockerCon as much as I do.”
“It was great meeting the Pals assigned to me. For me it was interesting to learn about the different people and use cases. I also enjoyed walking everyone through the vendor area explaining all the technologies.”
“Last DockerCon was my third in a row and the third time I’ve been involved with Docker Pals as a Guide. Continue reading
At DockerCon Copenhagen we launched the Docker Pals program in order to connect attendees and help them make the most out of their trip. Attending a conference for the first time or by yourself can be intimidating and we don’t want anyone to feel that way at DockerCon! Pals get matched with a few others who are new (the “Pals”), and someone who knows their way around (the “Guide”) so you will have a familiar group before you arrive at the conference. Guides help Pals figure out which talks and activities to attend, and are available for questions.
This year we are excited to grow the program, matching more groups and adding Meet-and-Greets throughout the week. You won’t want to miss the best version of Docker Pals yet!
Here’s what Pals had to say about DockerCon Barcelona:
“Docker Pals made my DockerCon experience ten times better and I’ve made friends I hope to see again!”
“Our Guide was very helpful and I really enjoyed meeting other Pals at the conference.”
“[I enjoyed] the fact that even though I was there alone I always had a place to turn for help and fellowship.”

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. Together, we believe that some of the most valuable conversations can come from hallway encounters, and that we can unlock greatness by learning from each other. 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.
To participate in Hallway Tracks:
At DockerCon Copenhagen we launched the Docker Pals program in order to connect attendees and help them make the most out of their trip to DockerCon. Attending a conference by yourself can be intimidating and we don’t want anyone to feel that way at DockerCon! Pals get matched with a few others who are new (the “Pals”), and someone who knows their way around (the “Guide”) so that you will know someone before you arrive at the conference. So, DockerCon veterans, please consider signing up to be a Guide and help welcome those newer to DockerCon to the amazing Docker community. Participating gives you the opportunity to learn even more, grow an even bigger network, and have even more fun!
“Docker Pals was an excellent opportunity to meet new Docker Captains and Community Leaders who are open to engaging with container enthusiasts of all skill levels, specialities and backgrounds. I would certainly take advantage of the program again, and volunteer to be a Guide next year.” – Jackie Liu
“I was able to learn and understand how Docker is used in real time and in production with my fellow Docker Pal.” – Continue reading
