With less than 6 weeks until DockerCon 2018, we can barely contain our excitement! From their favorite tips and tricks for using Docker in production or levering Docker for Machine Learning, Docker Captains come together at DockerCon to share their knowledge and collaborate with the broader community. We’ve asked Docker Captains to share what they are most looking forward to at DockerCon. Here are some of their responses.
“I’m looking forward to meeting the many other Docker enthusiasts and champions and listening to other cool things that Docker makes possible” – Kinnary Jangla, Pinterest
“ In 2015, I attended DockerCon for the first time. I was sitting in a chair and listening to the amazing stories and ideas presented by speakers at the conference, which set off a chain of events that led to today. I feel privileged, and am really looking forward to being on stage and sharing our transformational journey to inspire the people who would sit in that chair. I am also looking forward to hearing the keynotes and the exciting new announcements that I am sure are being lined up for the big event.” – Alexandre Iankoulski, Baker Hughes

According to a recent stackoverflow report, the Docker Platform is in the top 10 skills to learn if you want to advance in a career in tech. So where do I go to start learning Docker you may ask? Well the good news is that we now have free workshops and hands-on Labs included as part of your DockerCon 2018 ticket.
The conference workshops will focus on a range of subjects from migrating .NET or Java apps to the Docker platform to deep dives on container monitoring and logging, networking, storage and security. Each workshop is designed to give you hands-on instructions and guidance on key container notions and mentoring by Docker Engineers and Docker Captains. The workshops are a great opportunity to zoom in a specific aspects on the Docker platform. Here is the list of free workshops available (click on the links to see the full abstracts):
A significant number of Docker early adopters, advanced container users and Open Source lovers come to DockerCon to contribute to open source projects and collaborate on technical system implementations. Last year, these activities were taking place at the Moby Summit scheduled on the last day of the conference. Listening to feedback from attendees who expressed interest in participating in such activities earlier in the week, we’ve decided to bring back the Contribute & Collaborate track to the main conference days!
The goal of this track is to raise awareness and educate users around the upstream components of the Docker Platform, provide a path for new contributors and unleash new opportunities for innovation and collaboration within the broader Cloud Native and Open Source communities.
This track is organized in 4 half days (one for each of the categories below). Each will start by a series of lightning talks during which maintainers will be introducing their projects and doing a brief demo. We’ll then break into smaller groups for roundtables and informal, interactive Birds-of-a-Feather discussions with maintainers. This time will be a great opportunity to collaborate with peers who share the same interest, ask questions to maintainers, get insights into project roadmaps Continue reading

Last year at the Distributed System Summit in Berlin, Docker captains Marcos Nils and Jonathan Leibiusky started hacking on an in-browser solution to help people learn Docker. A few days later, Play-with-docker (PWD) was born.
PWD is a Docker playground which allows users to run Docker commands in a matter of seconds. It gives the experience of having a free Alpine Linux Virtual Machine in browser, where you can build and run Docker containers and even create clusters in Docker Swarm Mode. Under the hood Docker-in-Docker (DinD) is used to give the effect of multiple VMs/PCs. In addition to the playground, PWD also includes a training site composed of a large set of Docker labs and quizzes from beginner to advanced level available at training.play-with-docker.com.
In case you missed it, Marcos and Jonathan presented PWD during the last DockerCon Moby Cool Hack session. Watch the video below for a deep dive into the infrastructure and roadmaps.
Over the past few months, the Docker team has been working closely with Marcos, Jonathan and other active members of the Docker community to add new features to the project and Docker labs to the training section.

Since the Moby Project introduction at DockerCon 2017 in Austin last April, the Moby Community has been hard at work to further define the Moby project, improve its components (runC, containerd, LinuxKit, InfraKit, SwarmKit, Libnetwork and Notary) and fine processes and clear communication channels.
All project maintainers are developing these aspects in the open with the support of the community. Contributors are getting involved on GitHub, giving feedback on the Moby Project Discourse forum and asking questions on Slack. Special Interest Groups (SIGs) for the Moby Project components have been formed based on the Kubernetes model for Open Source collaboration. These SIGs ensure a high level of transparency and synchronization between project maintainers and a community of heterogeneous contributors.
In addition to these online channels and meetings, the Moby community hosts regular meetups and summits. Check out the videos and slides from the last DockerCon Moby May Summit and June Moby Summit to catch up on the latest project updates. The Moby Summit page on the Moby website contains the agenda and registration link for next Moby summit, as well as recaps of previous summit.
The next Moby Summit will take Continue reading
Last month at DockerCon, we introduced the Moby Project: an open-source project sponsored by Docker to advance the software containerization movement. The idea behind the project is to help the ecosystem take containers mainstream by providing a library of components, a framework for assembling them into custom container-based systems and a place for all container enthusiasts to experiment and exchange ideas. Going forward, Docker will be assembled using Moby, see Moby and Docker or the diagram below for more details.
Knowing that that a good number of maintainers, contributors and advanced Docker users would be attending DockerCon, we decided to organize the first Moby Summit in collaboration with the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). The summit was a small collaborative event for container hackers who are actively maintaining, contributing or generally involved or interested in the design and development of components of the Moby project library in particular: LinuxKit, containerd, Infrakit, SwarmKit, libnetwork and Notary.
Here’s what we covered during the first part of the summit:
