As the conference is a few months away and at least one release of Kubernetes & OpenShift each will occur before the actual date, we'll be adding new speakers and topics as we get closer to the date of the event. To stay abreast of all the latest releases and events, please join the OpenShift Commons and join our mailing lists & slack channel.

This OpenShift Commons Gathering will feature some of the brightest technical minds in cloud technology discussing the future of OpenShift and its related upstream open source projects. With OpenShift Container Platform quickly gaining adoption around the world, the OpenShift Commons Gathering offers talks from upstream project leads, and case studies from users across multiple industries and use cases. This event will also include face-to-face meetings for all the OpenShift Commons Special Interest Groups and allow ample time for peer-to-peer networking.

Limited spaces are still available. Register today. 

A panel entitled "Upstream This!" will be moderated by Red Hat's Stormy Peters, and will include key contributors to Kubernetes and other upstream project leads. The panel will give attendees a unique opportunity for Q & A with the leaders of key Cloud-native open source projects and gain unique perspectives on how their respective projects augment the OpenShift Container platform.

In addition, Red Hat's Sebastian Pahl and Rob Szumski will be giving a talk on the "State of the Operator Ecosystem" covering the latest on Operators and the Operator Framework, and showcasing some of the latest Operators available today.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with leading OpenShift and Kubernetes technologists from multiple open source upstream communities and are encouraged to stay and also attend KubeCon and CloudNativeCon on December 11-14, also being held in Seattle.

What is OpenShift Commons?

Commons builds connections and collaboration across OpenShift communities, projects, and stakeholders. In doing so we'll enable the success of customers, users, partners, and contributors as we deepen our knowledge and experiences together.

Our goals go beyond code contributions. Commons is a place for companies using OpenShift to accelerate its success and adoption. To do this we'll act as resources for each other, share best practices and provide a forum for peer-to-peer communication.
