Welcome to PopUpTechTalks, the show by and for technologists. What’s on your mind these days? Tell us, and we’ll help share your inner tech voice with nifty & occasionally snarky little pop-up bubbles.


This time on the show we feature the best, brightest and most courageous  individuals from DockerCon 2017. Will all of the “suits” ruin Docker’s traditional “hoodie” culture or will they meet in the middle at business casual? Watch and see for yourself.

Stephen Foskett gives his take on Docker’s road to industry dominance or perhaps whale roadkill???



Mark Iskra chats with Amy about barriers to container adoption at DockerCon 2017.
