What is it about?

The de.NBI Cloud offers compute power for life science research in Germany. Active for about a year now, many projects of all sizes and with a variety of use cases are using the vast capacity of the de.NBI Cloud. Due to the diversity of approaches that arise in this exciting and rapidly evolving cloud computing technology niche, this meetup should help to exchange ideas and approaches in the growing de.NBI Cloud community.

The de.NBI Cloud User Meeting is your chance of meeting users, developers and administrators using the de.NBI Cloud. In a 3-day event (29.-31.10.2018) at Bielefeld University you can learn about life science projects hosted in the de.NBI Cloud. Talks and workshops will be given about current de.NBI Cloud projects and state of the art cloud computing technologies like Spark, Docker and Kubernetes.
