Docker's 5th Birthday Celebration

Save-the-date: March 19-25, 2018 


Every year in March, we celebrate Docker’s birthday. It is a tradition that is near and dear to our heart because it gives us the opportunity to express our gratitude to our community of contributors, customers, partners and users. The goal of this global celebration is to welcome those new to Docker and bring them up to speed through hands-on labs with the help of more advanced users who act as mentors on-site. This year, celebrations all over the world will take place March 19-25, 2018. Come learn, mentor, celebrate, eat cake, and take an epic #dockerselfie!

Last year, with the help of our awesome community leaders and captains, over 9,000 people attended one of the 152 celebrations across 5 continents!

Docker Birthday Workshops 

At local birthday #5 meetups, there will be Docker labs to help attendees at all levels learn docker and welcome new members into the community. While the courses and labs are geared towards newcomers and intermediate level users, advanced and expert community members are invited to join as mentors to help attendees work through the materials on-site.
