We’re Headed to Chicago for Social Connections 11

The RPR Wyatt team will be attending Social Connections 11 next week, June 1-2, and we are excited to announce our own IBM Champion, Alan Forbes, will be conducting his own session on Docker. Alan’s session will take place on day one of the conference in the Redis Room at 1:30pm. If you can’t make it to Alan’s session you can sign up to receive a copy of the presentation slides here.

Docker is the world’s leading software container platform. IBM says “IBM and Docker offer integrated container solutions that can meet the diverse needs of enterprises.” but what does that mean, exactly? Technology previews suggest that IBM Connections Pink will be designed to run in Docker and many products in the IBM portfolio such as IBM API Connect are already optimized for Docker. If you are active in the IBM community you will encounter Docker soon if you haven’t already.
If you have already deployed Docker containers on your own or work with them regularly then another session might be a better fit for you.
