About this event

Kubernetes Community Day, Los Angeles, 2024

Welcome to the second KCD-LA!  Our event is hosted by Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE), a 21-year-old nonprofit software conference held in sunny Pasadena, CA every March.  We are co-hosted directly next to DevOpsDays LA.

KCD-LA consists of two days and two tracks of presentations and workshops on the Thursday and Friday before SCALE begins.  KCD-LA continues the very successful ContainerDay LA events that ran from 2017 to 2021.

KCD-LA will take place from March 14 to March 15, 2024


Registration is through the SCALE website.  Your registration for SCALE includes KCD-LA.

RSVPs on this event here are welcome as an indication of interest, but will not get you into KCD-LA.
