DockerCon is making its return to Europe next year! DockerCon Europe will be held in the beautiful city of Copenhagen, Denmark at Bella Center Copenhagen from October 16 – October 18, 2017.
We plan on opening the week on Monday, October 16 with paid trainings and workshops, then General Session will kick off the conference the morning of Tuesday October 17 and the conference will continue through Wednesday October 18.
Three reasons why we are excited about DockerCon Europe in Copenhagen
- On behalf of the entire Docker team, it’s safe to say that we cannot wait to reunite with the Docker Community in Europe under one roof again! Local Docker Meetup chapters take place every week to fuel the community enthusiasm, but there is something special about coming together for DockerCon and collaborating, learning and networking as a big group.
- Recently remodeled in 2014/2015, the Bella Center Copenhagen is an ultra-modern event space featuring Scandinavian design throughout including open space with lots of indoor greenery. Bella Center Copenhagen is also one of the most sustainable venues in the world. They practice waste sorting in 16 categories, have an 850 kW wind turbine on-site for energy, as well as a living roof that is home to one million bees!
- Another fun fact: Did you know that over one million people visit the mermaid statue in Copenhagen, inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid fairytale? With all of the aquatic references throughout the city, we can’t wait to see what Moby scenes Docker illustrator Laurel will come up with!
Stay tuned in the upcoming months for both DockerCon US (April 17-20, 2017 in Austin, Texas) and DockerCon EU news including ticket sales and call for papers. In the meantime, catch up on all past DockerCon action and be sure to save the dates!
