The Docker community spans the four corners of the world. To celebrate the global nature of our community at DockerCon this year, we’ve created something new: Community Rooms.
Building on the learnings of our “regional rooms experiment” during our last Community All-Hands, Community Rooms are virtual spaces that DockerCon attendees will be able to join to discuss, share and learn about Docker in their own language and/or around a specific topic area.
The main focus of these Community Rooms is to bring people together and encourage interaction so we have set them up to be 100% live. Yep, that’s right, all the content you’ll find in these rooms, whether they’re talks, demos, workshops, panel discussions etc. will be in real-time, all broadcast over a live Zoom link.
Hosted by the Community for the Community
Each Community Room will be overseen by Docker Captains and Community Leaders. They will be responsible for every aspect of the room, from the curation of content, to the management of the schedule, to the recruitment of the speakers, to the moderation of their room’s live chat.
There will be seven community rooms to choose from, each with one or several hosts:
- Japan Room (language: Japanese / hosted by Akihiro Suda)
- Brazil Room (language: Portuguese / hosted by Lucas Santos and Rafael Gomes)
- Spanish Room (language: Spanish / Manuel Morejon, Javier Ramirez and Marcos Lilljedahl)
- French Room (language: French / hosted by Rachid Zarouali, Luc Juggery and Kevin Alvarez)
- German Room (language: German / hosted by Nicholas Dille and Nana Janashia)
- WSL2 Room (language: English / hosted by Nuno do Carmo)
- Docker for Super Beginners Room (language: English / hosted by Julie Lerman and Rachid Zarouali)
We’re mindful that for a good portion of the world, the sun will have already set by the time DockerCon begins at 9am Pacific Time. To accommodate for this Community Rooms will be accessible for 24 hours from the event kick-off, ensuring all time zones are covered. For example, to factor in the 14 hour time difference with Japan, sessions in the Japan Room will take place *after* DockerCon is effectively over.
Interested in speaking in a Community Room?
If you’re interested in participating in one of these rooms, whether it’s giving a talk about a cool project you’re working, or running a workshop or doing a mind-blowing demo, don’t hesitate to fill out this submission form. If you have any questions or if you want to know more about a specific Community Room, please feel free to contact one of the hosts mentioned above.
In about two weeks we’ll publish the final schedule for each room. We’re really excited about DockerCon LIVE 2021 and we hope these community rooms will bring together as many people from the community from as many parts of the world as possible.
