More than 60 Red Hat-led sessions confirmed for OpenStack Summit Boston

This Spring’s 2017 OpenStack Summit in Boston should be another great and educational event. The OpenStack Foundation has posted the final session agenda detailing the entire week’s schedule of events. And once again Red Hat will be very busy during the four-day event, including delivering more than 60 sessions, from technology overviews to deep dive’s around the OpenStack services for containers, storage, networking, compute, network functions virtualization (NFV), and much, much more. 

As a Headline sponsor this Fall, we also have a full day breakout room on Monday, where we plan to present additional product and strategy sessions. And we will have two keynote presenters on stage: President and CEO, Jim Whitehurst, and Vice President and Chief Technologist, Chris Wright. 

To learn more about Red Hat’s general sessions, look at the details below. We’ll add the agenda details of our breakout soon. Also, be sure to visit us at our booth in the center of the Marketplace to meet the team and check out our live demonstrations. Finally, we’ll have Red Hat engineers, product managers, consultants, and executives in attendance, so be sure to talk to your Red Hat representative to schedule an in-person meeting while there.

And in case you haven’t registered yet, visit our OpenStack Summit page for a discounted registration code to help get you to the event. We look forward to seeing you in Boston this April.
