Co-located with Cloud Native Computing Foundation's KubeCon, CloudNativeCon at the Berlin Congress Centre
The OpenShift Commons Gathering will bring together the brightest technical minds to discuss the future of OpenShift and its related upstream open source projects. With OpenShift Container Platform quickly gaining adoption around the world, the OpenShift Commons Gathering will feature talks from upstream project leads and case studies from users like Red Hat, Google, Microsoft Azure, Amadeus, T-Systems, Volvo, Weave, CNCF and more. This event will also include face-to-face meetings for all the OpenShift Commons Special Interest Groups and allow ample time for peer-to-peer networking.
A panel entitled "Upstream This!" will be moderated by Red Hat's Stormy Peters and will include Google's Aparna Sinha, CoreOS's Brandon Philips and both Red Hat's Clayton Coleman & Paul Morie. The panel will give the attendees a unique opportunity for Q & A with the leaders of key Cloud Native open source projects and gain unique perspectives on how their respective projects augment the OpenShift Container platform. In addition, Red Hat's Vincent Batts (OCI Technical Oversight Board (TOB) member) will be giving a talk on the State of the Container Ecosystem.
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with leading OpenShift and Kubernetes technologists from multiple open source upstream communities and are encouraged to stay and also attend the co-located KubeCon and CloudNativeCon on March 29-30.
We're bringing together experts from all over the world to discuss the container technologies, best practices for cloud native application developers and the open source software projects that underpin the OpenShift ecosystem to help take our ecosystem to the next level in cloud native computing. The 2016 event will gather developers, DevOps professionals, and SysAdmins together to explore the next steps in making container technologies successful and secure.

What is OpenShift Commons?
Commons builds connections and collaboration across OpenShift communities, projects, and stakeholders. In doing so we'll 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.
