Excitement in the world of Open Technology continues to amp up with the anticipation around DockerCon 2015, a two-day, multi-track conference that is organized by Docker, Inc. Featuring topics and content related to all aspects of Docker technology, it will be a gathering of 2000+ Application Developers, IT Operations Experts, Technical Managers, Line-of-Business Leaders, Service Providers and Docker contributors, all talking about the latest advancements around Docker technology.
Hard to believe that it was only a year ago that Docker-mania really took off at the first DockerCon in San Francisco. At that time, 500 ecosystem members met to celebrate Docker technology momentum and adoption has only sky rocketed from that point. Fast-forward to this yearâ€™s event where IBM is excited to be a top 3 contributor to Docker with over 290 total commits by 20 IBMers, 2 of which are designated maintainers. Weâ€™re also excited to again be a Platinum Sponsor of DockerCon2015 where we look forward to meeting 2000+ ecosystem enthusiasts â€“ thatâ€™s quadruple the attendees in 2014!
As a Platinum Sponsor, our team is excited to lead tutorial track where you can learn how to develop Docker containers in the public cloud via a free 30 day trial of IBM Bluemixâ„¢. You can also stop by our booth to learn how to run Docker Hub Enterprise behind your firewall in your own private cloud with IBMâ€™s enterprise class private cloud software as well as how you can run containers on System Z and Power Systems. Did you know that Docker containers now run on IBM Z Systems to enable customers to better deliver applications and services in their environment? Or that you can maximize the efficiency and portability of applications with Open Source Docker containers enabled for Power Systems? Learn about this and more at the IBM booth.
Here is perhaps the most exciting news â€“ you can join team IBM in this amazing momentum because weâ€™re hiring in a big way! Stop by the IBM booth to learn more about job openings and set up an interview with a hiring manager on site. You can even get started before DockerCon by visiting the new IBM Cloud jobs portal.
