The Stars Are Aligning: Announcing our first round of speakers at DockerCon LIVE 2021

Apr 19 2021

With just over a month to go before DockerCon LIVE 2021, we’re thrilled to announce our first round of speakers. We have returning favorites and compelling new first time speakers to round out your DockerCon experience. 

We received hundreds of amazing speaker proposals which made it difficult to select just a few. We set up a small team this year composed of seven Docker staff members and three Docker Captains to diligently review each proposal and deliberate once a week. We have more speakers and sessions to announce so stay tuned. 

Remember, if you haven’t registered for DockerCon, please make sure to do so now to get an early peak at the conference website.
