Your “must sees” at “must attend” DockerCon

Of course you’re going. You wouldn’t miss it for the world. That’s because DockerCon:

  • Is the largest Docker-centric event taking place in the world
  • Offers you a unique opportunity to learn about every aspect of Docker and its ecosystem on-site, on display, up close, in action and in person.


You shouldn’t miss this either
The only challenge with an event like DockerCon is that there is way too much going on, so it’s often easy to miss out on the best. That’s why we encourage you to:

  1. Make a list of “must sees”
  2. Put anything and everything related to Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) at the top of that list 

DockerCon cartoon.jpgStart with the HPE booth - #G22 – right next to the main Docker booth on the event floor. Here, you’ll be able to meet with HPE experts who can help you build the ideal Docker solution for you in areas like Application Modernization and Infrastructure Optimization. Click on the solution names to view a blog on the topic.

Our experts will also be happy to show you the many ways that HPE – Docker solutions can help you:

  • Move, develop and deploy applications to Cloud
  • Broker and manage multiple Clouds
  • Reduce risk and ensure resilience

HPE can even make it faster and easier for you to acquire the Docker capabilities you need with our consumption-based model that delivers Docker on Demand. Ask an HPE expert for details. A blog on that topic is available here if you’d like a preview / overview.

Serious matters – Docker in action 
If you’re interested in seeing the results that an HPE – Docker solution can deliver, be sure to attend the 20-minute Ecosystem Track titled: “Enterprise Use Case of How Dockers Helps to Accelerate Genomics Research and More.” You’ll hear all about how HudsonAlpha uses HPE Synergy servers with Docker to help deliver on the tremendous promise of genomics in medicine. The session will be held on Tuesday, April 18, from 3:15-3:35pm in Ecosystem A.

 Fun, fun, fun
The area around the HPE booth will also feature fun activities, because all work and no play makes … you know.

  1. Check out our graffiti wall and watch new artwork being created each day of the event. See the wall take on life throughout the day as artists apply their imagination and talents. How soon will you be able to identify the elements and theme of each work of art? Don’t forget to have your photo taken with the wall on our Bluetooth wireless portable photo printer. You’ll look great.
  2. Be amazed at our mega Docker cake. Then, come back for a piece of the cake when we have the official cutting on Wednesday, April 19 at 12:45 p.m. Yum. 
  3. Be sure to play the "DevOps against Technology" game at our booth. Collect the HPE component to your journey. Then, visit all the booths in the Ecosystem Expo Hall to score big in the game.
