Kubernetes Community Days UK is a virtual event bringing together the cloud native community from across the UK to learn, network and collaborate. Kubernetes Community Days UK is supported by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, and organised by community group leaders.
Over the course of two days we will share stories of people using these technologies, both successes and failures - through in-depth technical talks, demonstrations of open source projects and workshops. The full agenda and speaker line-up is shown below.
Aside from two days of fantastic talks and discussion, several companies supporting the community have come together to offer free technical training through workshops. We’ve also got watch parties arranged by local meetup groups if you want to attend in-person and share the experience of the event with other likeminded folks. Full details and links to register can be found here.
Kubernetes Community Days UK is a volunteer-run event. Attendance is free of charge, money raised from sponsorship is used to cover event costs and swag with any remaining proceeds being donated to charity. Our sponsors support the Kubernetes community in the UK; if you would like to sponsor this event, details are available here.
We are committed to making the participation of all those involved in this event an experience free from harassment of any kind. Kubernetes Community Days are governed by the Linux Foundation Code of Conduct available at https://events.linuxfoundation.org/code-of-conduct/.
