About this event

Kubernetes Community Days comes back to Amsterdam! 

After the first edition of Kubernetes Community Days held in Amsterdam in 2019 (the first of its kind) and three long and harrowing years of global pandemic, we will be back in 2023 with a safer, hybrid, exciting edition of KCD to bring back together the vibrant Dutch and European community.

Two days of Kubernetes and Cloud Native, full of talks, workshops, events and fun and ending with a vegan BBQ and a party: this will be Kubernetes Community Days Amsterdam 2023! We are a locally-focused, inclusive and open community of engineers, developers, professionals and students of all things Cloud Native, coming together for celebrating our love and passion for technology. With 450 attendees, this is one of the largest events for cloud native in Europe, and our focus on local with a global perspective, our focus on open source and community, is what differentiate us from other commercial conferences.

What to expect?

Presence and engagement with all main actors in the Cloud Native ecosystem

  • Technically competent talks, relevant to the larger community and coming from end-user rather than vendors. Aim is to ensure the highest possible quality of sessions for all types of attendees (from “beginner” to “black-belt”)
  • Special (and famous!) guests from Open Source, DevOps and Cloud Native communities
  • An exceptional venue with large and comfortable movie theaters for talks and demos
  • Great food, ending with a vegan BBQ and a full on party that goes on until the morning!

Stay informed

Don't forget to signup for our newsletter (we promise we'll keep it short) here.

Stay safe

We will provide the safest possible hybrid event and follow all the government and CNCF guidelines. We will do our best to stream and record every talk and workshop and attempt to provide a great remote experience for who cannot be there in person with us in Amsterdam, thru a virtual event platform.

Participate

We look forward to receive many applications from experienced speakers and newcomers. Please use the official CNCF CfP system here; it's open between 1st of August and 15th of November 2022, while speakers and agenda will be announced mid-December. We are welcoming workshops, lighting talks, BoF sessions and regular, 30-minutes talks.
