Praise Be to the Dockercon 16 Demo Gods : Drink Espresso #dockercon

SEATTLE - Dockercon the primary conference for Docker container has a three year old tradition of appeasing the demo gods prior to any live demo - and Dockercon has lots of live demos.dockercon coffee

At Dockercon EU the gods were appeases with an offering of grapes - so any and all people doing demos ate a grape (or two) before going on stage. At Dockercon 16 today in Seattle, Docker Inc CEO Ben Golub announced the offering in Seattle - and no it's not grapes.

It's coffee.

That's right, prior to every live demo, the person doing the demo takes a shot of espresso.

What a great idea. As an admitted caffeine addict, this is an idea that appeals to me on so many levels, but it also makes sense. A quick shot of caffeine before doing a demo will at the very least make sure the presenter is awake.

Coffee as we all know is the real 'deity' of developers everywhere..
