Docker is excited to announce the launch of the inaugural DockerCon Diversity Scholarship Program! DockerCon brings together members from all aspects of our growing ecosystem and community. To continue to expand and nourish our community, Docker wants to ensure members of underrepresented groups have the opportunity to attend DockerCon without the barrier of financial strain.
The Diversity Scholarship Program aims to provide support and guidance to members of the Docker community who are traditionally underrepresented through mentorship and a scholarship to attend DockerCon Seattle.
Do you or your company want to help DockerCon Diversity Initiatives? Contact us to find out more information on how to get involved and sponsor.
Attend your local Docker Birthday #3 in-person trainings and complete the self-paced tutorial on the steps involved in running and developing a simple voting app from a fresh computer using Docker Toolbox and Compose.
If you are unable to attend one of the local Docker Birthday trainings, no worries! The self-paced training is available online here.
After you've completed the Docker Birthday training, complete the application here. Note, you will need to provide the repo address of your completed Docker Birthday App Project along with answering the questions in the application.
The submission period has ended. Thank you to everyone who applied!
A committee comprised of the Docker community will review and select the scholarship recipients based on the completion of the Birthday App Project and application. Recipients will be notified the week of April 25, 2016.
Learn more about Docker Birthday #3 and where in-person trainings will be hosted here.
