This Fall's 2016 OpenStack Summit in Barcelona, Spain is gearing up to be a fulfilling event. After some challenging issues with the voting system (which prevented direct URLs to each session), the Foundation has posted the final session agenda detailing the entire week's schedule of events. Once again, I am thrilled to see the voting results of the greater community with Red Hat sharing over 40 sessions of technology overview and deep dive's around OpenStack services for containers, storage, networking, compute, network functions virtualization (NFV), and much more. 

As a Premiere sponsor this Fall, Red Hat also has a full day breakout room, where we plan to share additional product and strategy sessions. To learn more about Red Hat's general accepted sessions, have a look at the details below. We'll add the agenda details of our breakout soon! Also, be sure to visit us at our Marketplace booth to meet the team and check out one of our live demonstrations. The Marketplace kicks off on Monday evening during the booth crawl, 5:00 - 7:00pm. Finally, we'll have several Red Hat engineers, product managers, consultants, and executives in attendance, so be sure to talk to your Red Hat representative to schedule an in-person meeting while there.

And in case you haven't registered yet, visit our landing page for a discounted registration code to help get you to the event. We look forward to seeing you all again in Spain this October!
