ABOUT EVENT

Openstack Days

OpenStack Days bring together hundreds of IT executives, cloud operators and technology providers to discuss cloud computing and learn about OpenStack. The regional events are organized and hosted annually by local OpenStack user groups and companies in the ecosystem, and are often one or two-day events with keynotes, breakout sessions and even workshops. It’s a great opportunity to hear directly from prominent OpenStack leaders, learn from user stories, network and get plugged into your local community.

Onsite Free Training

The Openstack Foundation will be providing a 1 day free upstream university for anyone that would like to participate in Openstack to learn how they can do so using the online tools to contribute.
