The Docker Project, the open platform for distributed applications, is organizing an open-source-a-thon.
Docker trainers and experienced developers will teach and mentor people on how to contribute to open source. Contributions include code, documentation, tutorials, videos, and mentoring. Each contribution to the Docker Project will also support the Oceanic Society and its mission to conserve oceans.

Since this meetup is co-hosted, we are trying to avoid over populating the space.

The program is timed to coincide with the project’s 2nd birthday and is focused on a cause – ocean and marine life health – that is important to its millions of users. Docker’s logo, Moby Dock, is a blue whale that was contributed and selected by its community.
The charitable program starts on March 23 and will span a total of five weeks; part of the proceeds will go towards the adoption and naming of a female blue whale soon to be known as “Molly Dock.”
Contributions from the “opening week” of the program and follow-on contributions over the subsequent four weeks will be calculated and the final donation will be made. One contribution equates to a $50 donation, and an additional $50 will be added to the “Molly Dock fund” for those that wish to continue to contribute.
