The conference will feature discussions on a wide range of topics led by experts from Docker and the Docker community across all industries. Due to popular demand, Docker has added a third day that gives attendees the opportunity to attend encore performances of top-rated sessions and participate in a Mentor’s Summit, which enables them to expand their knowledge of Docker and participation in Docker projects. The sessions will be divided into five different tracks:

  • Using Docker: This track is for everyone who’s getting started with Docker or wants to better implement Docker in their workflow. Whether you’re a .NET, Java or NodeJS developer looking to modernize your applications, or an IT Pro who wants to learn about Docker orchestration and application troubleshooting, this track will have specific sessions for you to get up to speed with Docker.
  • Docker Deep Dive: This track focuses on the technical details associated with the different components of the Docker platform: advanced orchestration, networking, security, storage, management and plug-ins. Docker engineering leads will walk you through the best way to build, ship and run distributed applications with Docker as well as give you a hint as to what’s on their roadmaps.
  • Black Belt: Black Belt talks are deeply technical sessions presented by Docker experts. Attendees of this track are looking for advanced technical deep dives. These sessions are code and demo heavy and light on the slides. From container internals to advanced container orchestration, security and networking, this track should delight most of the container connoisseurs in the room.
  • Use Cases: Use case talks are about practical applications of Docker. Attendees are looking for lessons learned and reference architectures from companies which have a lot of experience running Docker in production. Use case sessions are heavy on technical detail and implementation advice.
  • Ecosystem: Docker’s partners take the helm to discuss how partners help strengthen and expand the Docker ecosystem. Attendees will learn what is required to manage, monitor and secure Docker containers in production and have an opportunity to check out some of the winning hacks from Docker’s Annual Hack Day.

Early bird pricing is still available through January 14. To take advantage of early discounts, register now.

About Docker

Docker, Inc. is the company behind the Docker open source platform, and is the chief sponsor of the Docker ecosystem. Docker is an open platform for developers and system administrators to build, ship and run distributed applications. With Docker, IT organizations shrink application delivery from months to minutes, frictionlessly move workloads between data centers and the cloud and can achieve up to 20X greater efficiency in their use of computing resources. Inspired by an active community and by transparent, open source innovation, Docker containers have been downloaded more than 8 billion times and Docker is used by millions of developers across thousands of the world’s most innovative organizations, including ADP, GE, the BBC, Goldman Sachs, Groupon, ING, Yelp, and Spotify.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
