DockerCon San Francisco 2019 Call for Papers

Deadline: January 18th at 11:59 PST


Docker and containers are being used everywhere for everything - from sending rockets to space to literally save the earth from asteroids, to running intensive genomics analysis to find cures for diseases, or keeping ecommerce running smoothly for black friday shoppers. Docker’s principles of making easy to use yet powerful tools for developers and IT ops enables creative people around the world to build software faster.

The Call for Papers for DockerCon San Francisco is now open!

We want to hear your story - how you are working with containers in your organization.
DockerCon attendees are a mix of developers, systems admins, architects, and IT decision makers —from beginner, to intermediate, and advanced users—who are all looking to level up their skills, connect with fellow container fans and go home inspired to implement new containerization initiatives.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to tell your story
Submit a CFP (or two) today, before the January 18th deadline.

First timer? Fantastic!

Don’t be nervous about proposing your idea - no topic is too small or too big.
