Docker is organizing a 24 hour hackathon the weekend before DockerCon US 2015. The prize for the winners is a ticket for DockerCon and a chance to present their project during the conference.

As a Team of 1 to 3 hackers you will hack on a project using Docker as the central piece.


You will have exactly 24 hours to complete this project. These 24 hours include the time to create all materials needed for your presentation.


At the end of the 24h, you will have 90 seconds to present your project.


It is not allowed to start the project before the hackathon. However, we encourage you to think of the idea before coming to the hackathon.


Even-though it is better to know about Docker before joining the hackathon, anyone can join in & participate.


The winning team will be offered:

  • A ticket to DockerCon (an $899 value) for each of the team members
  • A chance to present their project at DockerCon


The hackathon will take place at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis, 780 Mission Street San Francisco, CA 94103, where DockerCon will also be taking place. During the event, several Docker employees will be there to answer technical questions and help you with using and tuning your Docker project.
