During the Docker Tour de France, Docker and Epitech are organizing a Hackathon, open to everyone (students from every school, Alumni from every school, etc...). Anybody can join and hack on Docker during 3 days.

The winning team will be offered tickets to DockerCon US 2015 ( + plane tickets and hotel for the two days of the conference.

The exact rules will be announced later, but you will be able to hack with or on Docker, by team of 1, 2, 3 (3 is max).

We will start the afternoon by presenting the rules, and then we will split into two groups:
- if you already know Docker you will be able to start right after
- if you begin with Docker, Jerome Petazzoni ( will give a 101 session to help you start asap with Docker.

People from the Docker, inc. team as well as people from the Docker community, OVH, Online Labs & Mailjet will be there to help you during the week-end.

You will then have until Monday 15th, 9am, to complete your project and prepare a 3-minute presentation and send us the link to you GitHub project. You will not be allowed to start the project before the Hackathon starts (that is why we do not tell you the subject now :)).

On Monday you will present to every participants and a jury will then decide on the winning team.

Big thanks to OVH and Online Labs who will be providing machines to run your Docker containers on.

Are you ready to hack? Join the Docker Hackathon!
