Global Hack Day Demo Videos

Dec 06 2013

The biggest Docker event (so far)!

This week was the first-of-its-kind Docker Global Hack Day! The growing number of Docker meetup groups around the globe has convinced us to organize an event that would bring the whole Docker community together despite the time difference. Such a global event would have never been possible without the engagement of every participants and the help of our meetup group co-organizers that managed to find places to host local editions of the Global Hack Day. With more than 400 participants worldwide (including the people registered for the remote edition) and 8 local editions, we are very thankful for such an awesomely active community. With such a great push from the community, we are confident that both Docker itself and upcoming Docker events will only get better and better.

We have received numerous videos of participants demoing their hacks. You can watch all these videos here below and review the source code of most hacks on GitHub.


You can view all the photos from the Docker Global Hack Day on our Flickr photostream. If you have photos from a local edition please send them to us at
