Let’s meet in Austin at the OpenStack Summit

Jodi Smith - March 28, 2016 -

With the semi-annual OpenStack Summit just around the corner, we’re in full-on prep mode, getting ready to share experience, knowledge, and fun.

hello my name is openstack

First, the fun. Come to booth A41 to get started on an interactive passport game that fosters communication at the event and on social media. The top prize is an OpenStack certification from our industry-leading OpenStack Training team. Got your attention? We’re also giving away some of the other awesome swag you’ve come to expect from us. We’ll share more details on the game this Friday, April 22, before the summit begins.

During Monday’s keynotes, you can hear from Mirantis customers AT&T and Volkswagen, at 9:35 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., respectively. In between, at 9:50 a.m, Mirantis CMO Boris Renski will take the stage for a special keynote.

Below, we’ve listed the 25 sessions we’re participating in, and a few more from customers and partners. We’re honored to have these sessions chosen, and to have been entrusted to share what we’ve learned, both as a top contributor to OpenStack and in our work getting customers into production. If you’re a Mirantis customer or partner and you’d like to see your talk featured here, please email jsmith@mirantis.com.

And don’t miss the chance to get some free training. We are offering a two-day free FUEL100 class during the Summit as a part of the OpenStack Academy on April 27-28.
