Breakfast & Ecosystem Expo
Pancake Robot and Breakfast Event 
Watch pancake robot print some flapjacks at DockerCon in Seattle. We’ll eat pancakes (made by the caterer), print pancakes (made by PancakeBot) and talk about the new stack of networking with Docker’s Brent Salisbury, Cisco’s Ken Owens and Gartner’s Simon Richard. We’d like to thank Cisco for getting pancake robot to DockerCon and getting the conference started right with some perspective and pancakes.

Now working at Docker, he is part of an engineering team that is building community and working to make sure the users experience of Docker networking is as satisfying as the rest of the amazing project that is fundamentally changing the infrastructure market as fast as anything the industry has experienced since the micro processor.

Nicholas Anderson, Consumer Digital Infrastructure: Nick Anderson is a developer, hacker, and ops guy for one of the largest retail companies in the world. He currently works in web infrastructure automation in hopes to deploy Docker in production any way he can. He loves hacking with Go and holds the title of “resident youngster” in his team.
