Watch all 30+ videos HashiConf Europe 2021 with these on-demand videos of all the keynotes, sessions, and customer presentations.
HashiConf Europe 2021 will be remembered for the release of Terraform 1.0. But the virtual conference also featured plenty of other impactful announcements and insights: the announcement of HCP Packer, updates to the core HashiCorp Cloud Platform, porting Vagrant to Go, a roadmap to Packer 2.0, and new Terraform Cloud features.
We have over 30 videos sharing details on those announcements and much more, including case studies, interviews, best practices, and benchmarks. All of the videos are presented below, and many of them already include full transcripts (the rest of the transcripts will be available soon).
But before you dive into the sessions, check out this short recap video highlighting the best of HashiConf Europe 2021:
