What an incredible DockerCon 2017 we had last week. A big thank you to all of the 150+ confirmed speakers, 100+ sponsors and over 5,500 attendees for contributing to the success of these amazing 3 days in Austin. After the general session videos from DockerCon Day 1 and Day 2 yesterday, we’re happy to share with you the video recordings of the top rated sessions by DockerCon attendees. All the slides will soon be published on our slideshare account and all the breakout session video recordings available on our DockerCon 2017 youtube playlist.

Announcing LinuxKit: A Toolkit For Building Secure, Lean and Portable Linux Subsystems
LinuxKit includes the tooling to allow building custom Linux subsystems that only include exactly the components the runtime platform requires. All system services are containers that can be replaced, and everything that is not required can be removed. All components can be substituted with ones that match specific needs. It is a kit, very much in the Docker philosophy of batteries included but swappable. Last week, onstage at DockerCon 2017 we open sourced LinuxKit. Learn More
Introducing The Modernizing Traditional Apps Program
Today at DockerCon, we announced the Modernize Traditional Applications (MTA) Program to help enterprises make their existing legacy apps more secure, more efficient and portable to hybrid cloud infrastructure. Collaboratively developed and brought to market with partners Avanade, Cisco, HPE, and Microsoft, the MTA Program consists of consulting services, Docker Enterprise Edition, and hybrid cloud infrastructure from partners to modernize existing .NET Windows or Java Linux applications in five days or less. Designed for IT operations teams, the MTA Program modernizes existing legacy applications without modifying source code or re-architecting the application. Learn More
