DockerCon 2015 is a two-day Docker-centric conference that is organized by Docker, Inc on June 22-23, 2015 in San Francisco. Building on the success of the previous editions, DockerCon continues to grow to reflect Docker’s blooming ecosystem and community. While we want to preserve the ambiance and simplicity of the first DockerCon, this edition will be by far the largest Docker event of all time.

At DockerCon you’ll have the opportunity to hear about all of the interesting ways developers, Ops, DevOps and Sysadmins are using Docker. No matter your level of expertise with Docker and the size of your company, we’re confident you’ll meet and learn from other attendees who share the same use cases and overcame the same challenges using Docker.

The tracks for DockerCon 2015 will be organized by the following four themes:

  • Docker, Docker, Docker
  • Use Cases
  • Advanced Technical
  • Culture

Other tracks include:

  • Hands-on Docker Tutorials
  • Hand-on Partner + Docker Tutorials
  • Ask the Experts (bring your problems and questions - we’ve got you covered)
  • How to contribute to open source
  • Summit
