Among the 5,000 attendees, we had a team of container and Kubernetes experts at DockerCon, from folks who help developers 1×1 to engineers involved with leading various IBM Cloud projects. We had conversations with developers about:
- Their current use of containers on various clouds
- Value–add of the foundation
- Current landscape and upcoming projects i.e. Istio
- Guidance on identifying getting started projects
- Use of IBM Cloud services such as Watson
At the IBM booth, Arpad Kun (ever sporting his headphones) was all smiles, maybe because we had that massive shipping container atop our display:
Hot news from the conference
DockerCon this year was full of exciting news. Did you hear?
- Deploy one containerized app across multiple global IBM Cloud regions, with the assurance that each has the same experience – no matter which data center it’s running in
- and LogDNA partnerships with IBM: Developers get new levels of intelligence into what’s happening in their containers, so they’re freed up to code.
- Docker had a couple interesting announcements: federated app management (not exactly a Kubernetes replacement) and support for Windows Server containers.
- Kubernetes and security topics were everywhere: sessions, hallway talks, and even in the .
- is extremely hot, creating long lines of attendees wanting to learn more and get hands-on experience
IBM and Docker: Expertise for the enterprise
IBM was proud to show off our maturity with Docker and containers. Our developers, architects and execs shared their personal experiences with building and operating cloud services. Here’s just a sampling of our sessions:

Party on the pier
No conference in The City By The Bay would be complete without a boat. IBM hosted the Belle’s Boardwalk Arcade at San Francisco’s Pier 3, home to some of the city’s most iconic vessels. Our guests had fun with vintage arcade games, karaoke, and an open-air concert. Thanks to our event lead, Raleigh Melancon, for coordinating the fun and demonstrating some artistic abilities!
