The first Italian OpenShift Commons Gathering
gathered over 300 participants to Milan!

On September 18th, 2019, the first OpenShift Commons Gathering Milan brought together over 300 experts to discuss container technologies, operators, the operator framework and the open source software projects that support the OpenShift ecosystem. This was the first OpenShift Commons Gathering to take place in Italy.

The packed event hosted 11 talks in a whirlwind day of discussions. Of particular interest to the community was Christian Glombek's presentation updating the status and roadmap for OKD4 and CoreOS.

Highlights from the Gathering included an OpenShift 4 Roadmap Update, customer stories from Amadeus, the leading travel technology company, and local stories from Poste Italiane and SIA S.p.A. In addition to the technical updates and customer talks, there was plenty of time to network during the breaks and enjoy the famous Italian coffee.

Here are the slides from the event:

What is OpenShift Commons?

Commons builds connections and collaboration across OpenShift communities, projects, and stakeholders. In doing so we enable the success of customers, users, partners and contributors as we deepen our knowledge and experiences together.

Our goals go beyond code contributions. Commons is a place for companies using OpenShift to accelerate its success and adoption. To do this we'll act as resources for each other, share best practices and provide a forum for peer-to-peer communication.
