Have you ever met a 3 year old who didn’t like a birthday party? I didn’t think so. Like any respectable 3 year old, the fine folks over at Docker are going all out celebrate the Docker project’s big “3”.
To celebrate this milestone, the Docker community is hosting a worldwide series of events to help beginners learn how to build, ship, and run distributed apps with ease thanks to the Docker toolbox. Experienced Docker users will serve as mentors to help all beginners during this training. And of course, there will be birthday cake at the end!
For those of us who have a Microsoft focus and might just be starting out in the world of containers, it’s exciting to have these chances to learn more about these tools. If you’ve taken a look at Server 2016 TP4 (or even as early as TP3), you might already know that you can use either Docker or PowerShell to deploy and manage Windows Server containers. And let’s not forget the recently launched Azure Container Service, which also features Docker support!
If you are interested in learning more about containers (Windows or otherwise) or how we partner with Docker, check out these resources:

- On Channel9 – The Containers Channel

If you are in the Bay Area and don’t want to miss out on that cake while deploying an app with Docker, the SF event will be on 3/23 and the Silicon Valley event on 3/24. More information about the Docker Birthday #3 is available at docker.party.
