The purpose of this post is to assemble resources shared in the Backchannel at Dockercon, which was held in San Francisco on June 22 and 23, 2015.

I will be updating this post as new resources come in. If you have resources to share, please tweet a link using #Dockercon and mention ServiceRocket. I’ll be sure to add it.

What is a backchannel?

A backchannel is the practice of using computers (ok, smartphones mostly) to maintain a real-time, online conversation alongside a primary group activity, event, or conference. Backchannels are mainly used by people who want to participate in a conference without attending the conference. But guess what, it turns out, people at the conference participate, too...sharing resources and their experiences at the conference. People also use it to otherwise connect with each other.

What is curation?

I am not talking about curating art at a gallery, although that is extremely glamorous. I am talking about curating content from a conference using a conference backchannel as a means for following, collecting, and sharing resources about the conference and the conference topic.

Stay tuned as this post will be updated frequently before, during, and after the conference.

Here are those resources:
