Thank you for attending the meshcloud Conference 2023!

It was two days of delving deep into the latest in cloud technology, with just the right touch of fun!

Alongside insightful talks from the cloud foundation teams at meshcloud, Commerzbank, RheinEnergie, Berenberg, and Volkswagen, we also enjoyed engaging breakout sessions on Landing Zones, FinOps, Platform Building, and the meshStack Cafe. The event concluded with an awards ceremony where outstanding efforts were acknowledged. Commerzbank’s impressive growth, RheinEnergie’s strong community-building, Volkswagen’s innovative platform approach, and EnBW’s consistent innovation were celebrated.
