DockerCon Europe 2017: Trip report

DockerCon Europe 2017 was held on October 16-18 in Copenhagen, and guess what ?! It was awesomely amazing.

This was my first time at DockerCon, I had lot of fun with my fellow Amine hakkou, learned many new things, made a list of some very cool open source projects to check, and most importantly I met many community friends.

Community leaders summit

There are more than 286 Docker meetups group worldwide, and we don't have each day the chance to meet fellow community leaders that spread the world about docker! This summit was a great opportunity to discuss some common issue we face as community leaders, share feedback, success stories and best practices. big shout out to Karen and Victor for their outstanding works supporting docker communities worldwide.


If you follow docker news you had noticed for sure that DockerCon was full of great announcements. The opening keynote was full of tools and demos about Modernizing Traditional Applications with Docker Enterprise Edition. MTA is a program that aims to "help enterprises make their existing legacy apps more secure, more efficient and portable to hybrid cloud infrastructure.". Docker announced also that it has expanded a partnership with IBM to Address Growing Demand for the Modernize Traditional Applications (MTA) Program.

MTA was announced first time at DockerCon Austin, but during DockerCon we had a deep lock to many new features that was added. ### Docker <3 kubernetes the best keynote announcement for me was when solomon jumped up to stage and announced that starting from early next year, will be included alongside swarm in docker.
