Docker Birthday #5 Celebration - Raleigh Edition

Organizer: Docker Raleigh
Click here for registration info

PLEASE RSVP FOR THIS EVENT HERE: Join us in celebrating the Docker Project’s 5th birthday!

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 in our community new Docker users and help them learn Docker through a series of hands-on labs. Advanced Docker users are invited to get involved on-site and act as mentors.

This year, celebrations all over the world will take place March 19-25, 2018, with our event being on March 19. Come learn, mentor, celebrate, eat cake, and take an epic #dockerselfie!

Docker Birthday #5 Hands-on Labs include:

Docker 101 for Linux users

Docker 101 for Windows users

Kubernetes on Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows

Modernizing Traditional Java Apps

Modernizing Traditional .NET / Windows Apps

Deploying Multi-OS applications with Docker EE

Attendees should make sure to bring their own laptops to complete the labs.

No need to install anything ahead of these events, we'll be using Play with Docker (PWD), a Docker playground which allows users to run Docker commands in a matter of seconds. It gives the experience of having a free Alpine Linux Virtual Machine in browser, where you can build and run Docker containers and even create clusters. In addition to the playground, PWD also includes a training site composed of a large set of Docker labs and quizzes from beginner to advanced level available at

Please be sure to RSVP so that guest badging and building access is optimized!!
