Early November 2016 the first Docker Community in Cuba was established. The founders Enrique Carbonell and Manuel Morejón joined efforts in order to share and spread the knowledge about Docker in the country. Supported by Docker Community and local sponsors three meetings have been held in different provinces in Cuba.

Meetings held have gathered professionals from different areas of the country such as universities, governmental enterprises and freelance developers. Details of the meetings held are shown below:
