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.

OpenStack Upstream Institute Office Hours

Experts from the Community will hold OpenStack Upstream Institute office hours to share knowledge about the different ways of contributing to OpenStack–adding new features, writing documentation, participating in working groups, and so forth.

London – International Software Developer Hub
