This is a guest post from Adam Henriques.
On August 22nd Jenkins CI enthusiasts will gather in Copenhagen, Denmark for the 3rd consecutive year for a day of networking and knowledge sharing. Over the past two years the event has grown and this year we are expecting a record number of participants representing Jenkins CI experts, enthusiasts, and users from all over the world.
The Jenkins CI User Event Copenhagen has become cynosure for the Scandinavian Jenkins community to come together and share new ideas, network, and harness inspiration from peers. The program offers invited as well as contributed speaks, tech talks, case stories, and facilitated Open Space discussions on best practice and application of continuous integration and agile development with Jenkins.The Jenkins CI Code Camp 2014
The Jenkins CI User Event will be kicked off by The Jenkins CI Code Camp on August 21st, the day before the User Event. Featuring Jenkins frontrunners, this full day community driven event has become very popular, where Jenkins peers band together to contribute content back to the community. The intended audience is both experienced Jenkins developers and developers who are looking to get started with Jenkins plugin development.

After a very successful JUC Boston we headed over to Berlin for JUC Berlin. I've heard the attendance number was comparable to that of JUC Boston, with close to 400 people registered and 350+ people who came.
The event kicked off at a pre-conference beer garden meetup, except it turned out that the venue was closed on that day and we had to make an emergency switch to another nearby place, and missed some people during that fiasco. My apologies for that.
But the level of the talks during the day more than made up for my failing. They covered everything from large user use cases from BMW to Android builds, continuous delivery to Docker, then of course workflow!
Most of the slides are up, and I believe the video recordings will be uploaded shortly, if you missed the event.
I've uploaded pictures I've taken during JUC Boston and JUC Berlin.
JUC Berlin pictures starts with pre-conference beer garden meet-up. See Vincent Latombe gives a talk about Literate plugin. I really appreciated his coming to this despite the fact that the event was only a few days before his wedding:
In JUC Boston pictures, you can see some nice Jenkins lighting effect, as well as my fellow colleague Corey Phelan using World Cup to lure attendees into a booth:
If you have taken pictures, please share with us as your comment here so that others can see them.
Tomorrow in Jenkins office hours, Surya Gaddipati will be going over DotCi, a package of features that integrates Jenkins closely with GitHub, configuration via .ci.yml file in source tree, built-in Docker support and MongoDB backend.
To record the show, this event will be in a different hangout from the usual one, but the time is the same. Looking forward to seeing you!
I'll be visiting London in early September, and if possible I'd love to organize some get together of Jenkins users/devs. I wonder if anyone is interested in hosting the event?
I think it just needs to fit 20 or so people, so all we need is a single conference room somewhere in London. If you think you might be able to help, please drop us a note at the events list.
