We've now uploaded all the presentations from the Berlin event and linked to videos of the presentations below.

Back on Tuesday (March 28, 2017) in Berlin, 245 members of the global OpenShift community gathered into an overflowing sold-out room at the Berlin Congress Centre at Alexanderplatz. There were attendees from over 25 countries and we were thrilled to announce that the OpenShift Commons added its 250th OpenShift Commons member organization with Macquarie Bank joining the Commons just in time for the Berlin Gathering.

The OpenShift community is incredibly grateful to all the wonderful speakers and panelists who participated and shared their stories, road maps and use cases with us and to the good folks at CNCF.io that helped to organize, promote and shared the space with us.

First, We Took Berlin. Next, We'll Take Boston!

The Berlin event had a great lineup of speakers and panelist ranging from upstream project leads, core contributors, production users, service integrators, and host/operators - all sharing their perspectives, insights, and use cases for OpenShift, Kubernetes, and Containers. It was great to experience the momentum with which the community continues to drive the OpenShift Origin project forward as well drive contribution and feedback into all of the upstream communities. We are grateful for all upstream project leads, contributors, customers, and partners who contributed conversations at the event. Your participation is what has made all of OpenShift Commons Gatherings so successful and have turned the tickets into coveted prizes.

For those of you on the waitlist who didn't get in, we apologize and promise get a bigger room for our next OpenShift Commons Gathering on May 1st in Boston at Red Hat Summit, but please register soon so you don't end up on the waitlist yet again!
