Docker Community All-Hands #2

Docker Virtual Meetups
Thu, Mar 11, 8:00 AM (PST)

This will be our second Docker Community All-Hands. Make sure to join to get company updates from Docker's executive staff, watch mind-blowing demos from our engineers, ask your questions during the Q&A panel, and last but not least, connect with thousands of other Docker users and contributors.

About this event

We’re excited to announce that our next Community All-Hands will be on Thursday March 11th, 2021. This quarterly event is a unique opportunity for Docker staff and the broader Docker community to come together for live company updates, product updates, demos, community shout-outs and Q&A. 

As luck would have it, this All-Hands will coincide with Docker’s 8th birthday (yay!) so to mark the occasion, we’re going to make this event extra special by introducing a longer format (ie. 3 hours instead of 1 hour) and lots more content (ie. demos, community lightning talks and workshops). We’re also going to be using a cool new video platform that makes it much easier to engage/connect/share with speakers and attendees.


We’re still adding finishing touches to the agenda but the event to unfold as follows:

Part 1 : Staff Updates 

  • The first hour (8am-9am PST / 5pm-6pm CET)  will focus on company and product updates, demos and a live Q&A with participation from Docker executive staff, including Scott Johnston (CEO), Justin Cormack (CTO), Donnie Berkholz (VP of Products) and Jean-Laurent de Morlhon (VP of Engineering)

Part 2: Community Presentations

  • The second hour (9am-10am PST/6pm-7pm CET) will focus on live lightning talks, demos and workshops run by Docker Captains so that attendees can deep dive into particular areas of interest. The session schedule is as follows:
