Red Hat confirms over 35 sessions at OpenStack Summit, Austin – Have a look!

As this Spring’s 2016 OpenStack Summit in Austin, TX nears, the Foundation has posted the final session agenda, outlining the week’s schedule of events. I am pleased to see that based on your voting, Red Hat continues to remain in sync with the current topics, projects, and technologies the OpenStack community and customers are most interested in. With the expectation of the largest attendee crowd yet, and some exciting advancements around containers, storage, networking, compute, and more, we look forward to sharing the 35+ generally accepted sessions, workshops, and BoFs that will be included in the weeks agenda.

Red Hat is a Headline sponsor in Austin this Spring and along with the general sessions, workshops, and breakout track, Chris Wright, VP of Software Engineering, will be giving a keynote presentation and update on our OpenStack technologies on Monday April 25th during the main keynote session segment, between 9:00-10:45am. If you’re planning to attend Jonathan’s main keynote on Monday, you’ll be able to catch Chris’s keynote as well. To learn more about Red Hat’s accepted sessions, have a look at the details below.
