Over the last 3 years, Docker has provided over 75 financial scholarships to members of the Docker community, who are traditionally underrepresented, to attend DockerCon. By actively promoting diversity of all kinds, our goal is make DockerCon a safe place for all to learn, belong and collaborate.

We wanted to check back in with DockerCon Europe 2017 scholarship recipient, Roshan Gautam, and hear how attending DockerCon Europe has impacted his life. In Roshan’s words:
Ever since I learned about Docker from a senior friend of mine back in early 2017, I got super excited about this technology and I started learning Docker. I enjoyed using Docker so much that I applied for a campus ambassador program and started a community on my campus.** One day, a of the member of campus community mentioned the scholarship program for DockerCon EU 2017. I applied for the scholarship and cheers to my luck, I got it.
At DockerCon, I had a really wonderful time listening to the speakers, meeting with new people with similar mindset and of course having nice healthy food. “Guidance, Mentoring, Caring” – These are the words I want to use for the amazing organizers of the conference. Along with attending the high quality sessions in the conference, I got the chance to meet other fellow campus ambassadors from different places. I can’t stop mentioning, how amazing the After Party was. It was my first time in Denmark (actually Europe) and I really had an experience of a lifetime.
After returning from DockerCon EU, I started sharing my experience with my school community as well as the local Docker community in Kathmandu. I took courses online and I joined a company in Nepal and started working as a Devops (also Developer) in the company. There, we organized 2 week long workshops and seminars. Recently, I started my own company in Kathmandu where we use Docker for every single projects both in development and production. I have been advocating about Docker and the communities behind it in different events and workshops in Nepal. I believe that, DockerCon EU 2017 was a life changing moment of my life and I have no complains.
**Please note: the Docker Campus Ambassador program is no longer active.
