Date: 11 September 2017 at 19:24
Hallen Studios, Amsterdam | 9 October - 11 October 2017
Whether you work for a large enterprise wrestling with the real-world task of migrating existing applications to the cloud, or a
startup looking ahead to enterprise scale, containerization and cluster technologies are critical skills for the innovation-minded
OpenHack brings together groups of diverse developers to learn how to implement a given scenario on Azure through three
days of immersive, structured, hands-on, challenge based hacking.
Join us for three days of fun-filled, hands-on hacking where you will team up with community peers and learn how to take
Linux and Windows based workloads to the cloud. During OpenHack you will:
Choose your desired tooling and technology based on either Kubernetes or Azure Service Fabric paths.
Hack on increasingly robust challenges structured to leave you with skills and expertise needed to deploy containers
and clusters in your place of work.
Network with fellow community members and other professional developers from startups to large enterprises, as well
Microsoft Engineering leaders and experts including Gabe Monroy (former Founder & CTO of Deis and Engineering
Lead for Azure containers) and Mark Fussell (Engineering Lead for Azure Service Fabric).
Get answers to your technology and workplace project questions from Microsoft and community experts.
In addition to the challenge based learning paths, a limited number of 2-hour code-with slots will be made available on a first
come, first served basis to work elbow to elbow with Microsoft experts on your own workplace projects.
OpenHack is free for registered attendees!
Food, refreshments, prizes and fun will be provided. If travelling, attendees are responsible for their own travel expenses and
evening meals.

and technologies. You are not required to be an expert or authority, but a familiarity with each will be advantageous:
