I reached there on 3rd Oct’16 and got a chance to meet Jim Zemlin Executive Director of The Linux Foundation. On 4th, during the keynote Solomon Hykes, Founder and CTO of Docker open-sourced Infrakit, which is a toolkit for creating and managing declarative, self-healing infrastructure. It is currently used in Docker for AWS and other similar solutions. Later in the day, I attended sessions on Comparing Container Orchestration tools by fellow Docker Captain Adrian Mouat, [Cgroups](http://man7.org/conf/lceu2016/cgroups-LinuxCon.eu2016-Kerrisk.pdf)_ session by Michael Kerrisk and Microservices vs Reverse-Proxy via Emile Vague. In the evening I attended the speaker and sponsor’s party at House of Weekend, Berlin.
On the 5th I spent most of the time preparing for the container orchestration workshop on the 7th. Though I attended few sessions like Getting started with Mesos Marathon by Brenden Matthews, OCI session by Qiang Huang, Docker Orchestration via Aaron Lehmann, Phil Estes talk on container security and Migrating traditional & existing app on the container by Scott McCarty. In the evening I attended the 25th Anniversary of Linux Celebration The Great Orangery at Charlottenburg Palace. There I got the chance to meet Dan Kohn, Executive Director of The Cloud Native Computing Foundation and discussed the course I did for Linux Foundation, earlier this year.

On the 6th attended after attending one or two sessions I joined fellow Docker Captains for Jerome Docker Swarm workshop. After the workshop, Solomon joined us for Q &A. He shared an interesting perspective on Docker – Docker which has been there for quite some time and Docker which is now evolving …

After that, we had Docker Captain’s party at some nearby restaurant.
On 7th I delivered the hands-on session on container orchestration, in which I covered Docker Swarm, Kubernetes and Mesos Marathon. For Docker Swarm and Marathon I gave instances on DigitalOcean to each participant. For Kubernetes, I created a cluster on Google Cloud and had a namespace created for each participant. I heard some good feedback about the workshop after the session was over.

After the session, I went to attend the Docker Distributed Summit for rest of the day. The summit had very good technical content. All of the videos are recorded and would be shared soon. I could not attend the second day of the Summit as I had come back on the 8th.
As always this had been a great experience. Learned a lot, met many interesting people and made some new friends.
People have been asking me who is funding your foreign trips as I attended DevConf in Brno, CZ and DockerCon in Seattle earlier this year as well. I have been funding my own trips, which I think as investments. I got few leads from this conference as well. Hope I am on the right path by doing so. Let’s see if I would have another blog post for an overseas conference or not.
