Yesterday was the Ansible Community Day in Berlin. I have to say, it was a blast. Meeting the community, talking about all kind of tech-thingies (technical term) and connecting with experts is something I really enjoy.
Let's take a look at my journey and experiences.
The event was happening in Berlin in one of the oldest hacker spaces. c-base is located directly at the Spree river and I was enjoying the garden.

The c-base members also took care of our needs and demands. It was a super welcoming environment and team.
As you might know already, I am taking some photos occasionally. Therefore, let me share some with you.
A community day requires some content. This year, I also applied for a talk and was granted with one of the afternoon slots. Therefore, I was able to enjoy all the other talks and get in touch with the speaker.
The agenda, provided in the brand-new Ansible forums, was packed with cool content.

There were also some recordings. In case you missed the livestream, want to see some talks in details or just me hopping on the stage, you can find them on YouTube.
I also want to thank the huuuge community support from Carol Chen and Greg Sutcliffe for organizing the event. It was a breeze to talk to you. Due to your massive effort and the help of the c-base team, I was able to enjoy the day for real.
I can't wait for the next event. Connecting with people is such a pleasure. I also want to strengthen my collaboration with community a bit. Especially Automation Good Practices and Ansible Pilot are interesting for me.
