I can find answers all around the Internet for doing it with gconf-editor in older versions of Ubuntu, but I can't find the answer for doing it with dconf-editor in latest release.

In Ubuntu 12.04 you still can and have to use gconf-editor.

Install via the software center

When installed, run it and navigate to apps > docky-2 > Docky > Items > DockyItem. There uncheck "ShowDockyItem". Restart Docky.
