This OpenShift Commons Gathering will feature some of the brightest technical minds in cloud technology discussing 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 offers talks from upstream project leads, and case studies from users across multiple industries and use cases. 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.

Limited spaces are still available. Register today

Highlights of the upcoming Gathering in Santa Clara include updates on the forthcoming Red Hat OpenShift 4.0 release. With the move to Operators in this next release, many of the talks at this upcoming Gathering focus on the usage and creation of Kubernetes Operators. Uber engineers Matt Schallert and Paul Schooss will discuss their experiences building operators for the ride sharing company, while Matt Modestino from Splunk will discuss that company's usage of Operators.

Elsewhere at the Gathering, engineers from Google, Facebook and Red Hat will discuss the future of cgroups, and nVidia's Tripti Singhal will present on the usage of GPUs for deep learning on OpenShift.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with leading OpenShift and Kubernetes technologists from multiple open source upstream communities.

Hands-on Developer Workshops to be run in parallel 

We are also hosting (in parallel) two hands-on developer workshops on Container Native Storage using Rook and on Kubernetes Operator Framework. Pre-registration is required for each of the workshops. Attendees must also register for the Gathering to attend the workshops.

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.
