Docker Bday #6 Show-and-Tell!

About this event

Join us for the Blacksburg edition of the Docker Bday #6 Show-and-Tell!

Docker is turning 6! Over the last 6 years, Docker Community members have found amazing and innovative ways of using Docker technology in a variety of different projects. This year, we’d like to celebrate you! If you’ve been working on a cool project using Docker technology, come and show off! If you’re new to Docker, come along to listen and learn. All attendees will receive a DockerCon discount code.

After a short intro presentation, participants will each have 10-15 minutes of stage-time to show everyone how they have been using Docker (and perhaps get some feedback from others). The presentations do not need to be polished and they can be purely personal, fun projects. Presenters will get a Docker Birthday #6 t-shirt and have the opportunity to submit their Docker Birthday Show-and-Tell to the DockerCon Call For Papers for a speaking slot at DockerCon!

If you would like to show-and-tell please use the ‘Contact Us’ button (in the Community Leaders section) to let us know! Please share an outline of your project and your t-shirt size)

Let’s make this the world’s biggest and most fun show-and-tell! Let us know you’re coming by tweeting using the hashtag #DockerBday 

And a special shout-out and thank you for the support from Excella for sponsoring our event!
