The day (4th of December) started with the general session. Steve Singh, CEO of Docker, kicked of the keynote. He started with comparing Docker Container with containers in the harbor. As containers were revolution in the transport, containers are now at the heart of the 4th industrial revolution. Every company is becoming a software company as software is eating the world. Steve said that container platforms are replacing the current platforms.
Today is the first day of DockerCon 2018 Europe. Today you can follow different workshops, partner day, hands-on-labs, hallway tracks and round table session (invitation only). The day started with picking up my badge and backpack. After that I went to my first workshop of this conference. The workshop was about migrating .NET applications to containers. The presentation was given by Elton Stoneman. The workshop was setup in a format where you could choose to only follow it as a presentation or participate by doing the exercises yourself.

This year will be the second time that I attend DockerCon. Last year I also attended DockerCon Europe in Copenhagen. That time I was not sure what to expect. I had experience with VMworld but had no idea if DockerCon would be the same. There were of course similarities but also things that were different. For starters DockerCon is much smaller then VMworld which I personally like. Another thing I liked was the hallway track.
