OpenShift Commons Gathering at Red Hat Summit

Where users, partners, customers, contributors and upstream project leads come together to collaborate and work together on OpenShift.

OpenShift Commons Gathering will be co-located with Red Hat Summit!

The OpenShift Commons Gathering at Red Hat Summit will focus on talks from end users with production deployments of OpenShift sharing their use cases, lessons learned, and best practices with experts from all over the world. We’ll also discuss container technologies, best practices for cloud native application developers and the open source software projects that underpin the OpenShift ecosystem to help take OpenShift to the next level in cloud native computing. The event will gather developers, DevOps professionals and sysadmins to explore and collaborate on making OpenShift and the container technologies successful and secure at scale.
