Three Days Container Festival in the Port of Hamburg

ContainerDays 2019 in Hamburg

From 24 to 26 June 2019, the fourth edition of ContainerDays will take place on the premises of the Hafenmuseum Hamburg. For this year the organizer Loodse expects up to a thousand container enthusiasts from all over the world.

 

To kick off on 24 June, there will be a workshop day on which participants will be able to learn how to use container technologies in a very practical way. The actual conference will then take place on 25 and 26 June. With speakers such as Craig McLuckie, co-founder of the Kubernetes project, Ihor Dvoretskyi, Developer Advocate of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, and many more, ContainerDays will once again bring internationally leading experts to the stage this year. And of course the certain festival character with foodtrucks and chillout lounges, which makes up ContainerDays, should not be missing. So the trip to Hamburg is definitely worth it.

A little fun fact at the end: the former free port area where the conference takes place was once the largest and most modern transshipment facility in the city. However, in the 1960s, containers started to appear and both, the shed and the harbour basin, became too small for the new container ships. In shipping, too, containers were a revolutionary technology that brought about many exciting changes.
