Anyone interested in Docker can become an active member of the Docker community by becoming co-organizer of a Docker Meetup group.
If a Meetup group does not already exist in your area and you are willing to start a new one, the best way to proceed is to contact us so that we can create it for you. We will always agree to create a new Docker Meetup group as long as it makes sense geographically speaking.
If you have already created a Docker Meetup group that is fine, we will simply ask you to add us as a co-organizer so that we can ensure a consistent support to the group in terms of community and Meetup management.

Once again, each company hosting the event decides when does the meetup start, and how long it lasts. Usual meetups tend to last 2 hours, and start between 4pm and 6pm.
