The community container and dynamic infrastructure (un)conference comes to the East Coast for the first time: Boston on June 5-6, 2015.
ContainerDays Boston is a community (un)conference to encourage discussion and learning on the subject of containers and dynamic infrastructure generally. The programme is a mix of OpenSpaces sessions and talks from users, contributors and extenders from all corners of the space.
Whether you're an expert or new to the space, there'll be plenty for you to learn and discuss. It's an unconference, so you get to pick the topics!Sold out
If you've never been to an unconference or OpenSpaces event before, don't worry - it's a really easy format to get into. You may want to read this for some background.
From real-world implementation lessons to hands-on getting started workshops, we're trying to ensure there's something here for everyone - whether you're a container expert or are only just getting started, or can make both Friday and Saturday or attend only one of the days.
We're looking forward to thought-provoking talks and discussions, but at some point you'll also want to get your hands dirty. That's why the second half of Saturday is all about workshops, where you can team up and spend some keyboard time trying out interesting ideas and technologies.
We'd like to apply the unconference idea to the workshops, too. There'll certainly be some guided, step-by-step sessions if you're looking to get started. But we're also encouraging you to team up with a couple of other participants, get hold of one of the speakers, sponsors or other experts running around, and try out some of the tools and concepts that come up in discussion.
Please note that the programme is provisional and subject to change.
