Hosted in Berlin from November 13 to November 15, OpenStack Summit heads to Europe where attendees from around the world will come together for an opportunity to collaborate and learn about the latest innovations from the OpenStack community as well as CI/CD, Kubernetes integrations, and edge computing.

As a headline sponsor of the event, Red Hat will be returning and leading over 40 sessions, demos, training classes, and much more.

First, you can hear from our Senior Director of OpenStack, Nick Barcet, who will take the stage for the first day’s keynotes (Nov 13th). Nick will be discussing the role of Open Infrastructure, how the OpenStack community has enabled support for containers and how OpenStack can provide multi-tenant Bare Metal as a Service.

After the keynotes, you’ll want to come by the Red Hat booth in the exhibit hall to talk with our experts and check out our product demos (and get some cool swag). Finally, you’ll have the entire rest of the show to listen to Red Hatters present and co-present on a variety of topics, from specific OpenStack projects, to partner solutions, to OpenStack integrations with Kubernetes, Ansible, Ceph storage and more. These will be delivered via traditional sessions, labs, workshops, and lunch and learns. For a full list of general sessions featuring Red Hatters, click here.

In addition to these, we also have a great lineup of speakers on a variety of topics speaking during our sponsored breakout track on November 13th & 14 in Room 7.2a Helsinki 1. The speakers and topics are:
