It’s been nearly two weeks since Docker released Docker 1.12 as generally available for production environments, introducing a number of new features and concepts to the Docker project. Our #DockerCaptain team has already started to dig in and share their learnings with the community via blog posts, talks and peer-to-peer help. Docker Captains are technology experts who have been awarded the distinction of being a Docker Captain in part because of their passion for sharing their Docker knowledge with others. So, we’ve invited three of our Docker Captains to speak at the next Docker Online Meetup on August 31st and share their tips and tricks for using Docker 1.12.

Ajeet has a great passion for upcoming trends and technologies. He loves contributing towards Open source space through writing and blogging @

Ajeet has shared a number of fantastic articles on Service Discovery, including Demonstrating Docker 1.12 Service Discovery with Docker Compose and How Service Discovery works under Docker Engine 1.12. In the meetup, Ajeet will quickly share his key takeaways and the best ways to use Docker 1.12 Service Discovery.

Viktor Farcic is a Senior Consultant at CloudBees. He coded using a plethora of languages starting and can often be found speaking about Docker around the world. His big passions are Microservices, Continuous Integration, Delivery and Deployment (CI/CD) and Test-Driven Development (TDD).  He wrote The DevOps 2.0 Toolkit: Automating the Continuous Deployment Pipeline with Containerized Microservices and the Test-Driven Java Development books. His random thoughts and tutorials can be found on his blog

If you haven’t had the chance to check out Viktor’s Docker Swarm Introduction and Integrating Proxy With Docker Swarm (Tour Around Docker 1.12 Series), you are going to want to make some time to dive in. Viktor covers the basics of how Swarm in Docker v1.12 works and then deep-dives into some of the more complicated aspects. In the meetup, Viktor will share best practices for setting a Swarm cluster and integrating it with HAProxy.

For 20 years Bret Fisher has designed, built, and operated distributed systems from 4 to 4000. He currently focuses on DevOps style activities in the public cloud and enterprise. Bret works on creating immutable infrastructures, automation, containers, CI/CD, cloud monitoring, and an occasional JavaScript developer. He spends his free time in Virginia’s local, thriving tech scene helping lead local Code for America and Docker Meetup groups. He basically spend his days helping people. Bret lives at the beach. Dogs over Cats.

Bret frequents Docker forums to lend a helping hand when others get stuck, so he knows a thing or two about how to optimize getting started with 1.12. Bret will share his favorite Docker 1.12 command options and aliases that will make your life easier including cli aliases for quick container management; the shortest path to secure production-ready swarm; how to use cli filters for easier management of larger swarms; and docker remote cli security setup.
