Whether you are a developer, ops pro, system engineer, or any other IT professional excited about cloud native technologies, the Kubernetes Community Days DC (KCD DC) will have something for you. Supported by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation the event will be hosted at the historic national head quarters of the American Red Cross in DC. This full-day conference will focus on knowledge sharing, best practices, and new developments in and around Kubernetes.
About the Venue
We're proud to be meeting at historic Red Cross Square, the National Headquarters of the American Red Cross. All activities will be held in the building on E Street facing the North side of Red Cross Square. This building is dedicated with the words "IN MEMORY OF THE HEROIC WOMEN OF THE WORLD WAR" on the frieze above the main entrance. During the event, you will have an opportunity to donate blood in the Dr. Charles H. Drew Blood Donation Center on the garden level of our venue and/or join a private 30-minute tour of the Red Cross archives which includes a visit to our famous Tiffany windows, a special exhibit on Red Cross during WWI, and a permanent exhibit of Clara Barton's Civil War field kit and personal effects. Read more about Red Cross history.
For blood donations, please make an appointment in advance as walk-in appointments are limited. Search by zip code 20006, select Dr. Charles H. Drew Blood Donation Center and filter results for the dates you'll be on-site.
For joining the tour, simply respond "Yes" when prompted during online event registration.
