Remember to bring your laptop! You will be able to work through practical Docker exercises with the help of mentors - whether you are new to Docker or already have experience.

Every year in March, we celebrate Docker’s birthday. It is a tradition that is near and dear to our heart because it gives us the opportunity to express our gratitude to our community of contributors, customers, partners and users. The goal of this global celebration is to welcome in our community new Docker users and help them learn Docker through a series of hands-on labs. Advanced Docker users are invited to get involved on-site and act as mentors.

Docker Birthday #5 Hands-on Labs include:

  • Docker 101 for Linux users
  • Docker 101 for Windows users
  • Kubernetes on Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows
  • Modernizing Traditional Java Apps
  • Modernizing Traditional .NET / Windows Apps
  • Deploying Multi-OS applications with Docker EE

Attendees should make sure to bring their own laptops to complete the labs. No need to install anything ahead of these events, we’ll be using Play with Docker (PWD), a Docker playground which allows users to run Docker commands in a matter of seconds.

It gives the experience of having a free Alpine Linux Virtual Machine in browser, where you can build and run Docker containers and even create clusters. In addition to the playground, PWD also includes a training site composed of a large set of Docker labs and quizzes from beginner to advanced level available at

If following the Kubernetes on Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows, you’ll need to install Docker for Mac or Docker for Windows, depending on your operating system.
