The Software Circus is an international series of meetups and conferences. The Software Circus was born out of a frustration with software meetups which were too often no fun. Initially started as a meetup in my living room we focussed on combining cutting edge technology with more interaction leading to the tagline: Learn, Be Inspired, Be Entertained. The meetup quickly grew from it's birthplace in Amsterdam to London, Munich, Hamburg, Zurich and San Francisco and then spawned a conference. The Software Circus has attracted hundreds of speakers including Kelsey Hightower, Adrian Cockroft and Dan Kohn, has the backing of world leading software companies most important has taught, inspired and entertained tens of thousands of people.
