It's a Wrap! 365 Attendees from 145 Organizations from over 20 Countries attended the OpenShift Commons Gathering at Red Hat Summit 2017 on May 1st in Boston!
Talking Containers and Clouds at Scale with OpenShift: Not Just For Unicorns!
This OpenShift Commons Gathering at Red Hat Summit's focus was on hearing directly from enterprises with OpenShift in production at scale. All the speakers that presented shared their production use cases of OpenShift and deep technical insights into their technical stacks and all the services that they had integrated into their workflows. The range of case studies and the depth and breadth of various technical presentations was proof positive that containers and clouds are definitely not just for unicorns or not limited to 12-factor applications anymore, these cloud natives are doing a lot of heavy lifting at scale.
In addition, This event hosted 3 "AMA" (Ask-Me-Anything) Panels of engineers and product managers working on various aspects of OpenShift - all sharing their perspectives, insights, and use cases for OpenShift, Kubernetes, and Containers. It was a great opportunity to hear feedback and experience the momentum with which the community continues to drive the OpenShift Origin project forward as well drive contribution into all of the upstream communities.

The OpenShift community is incredibly grateful to all the wonderful speakers and panelists who participated and shared their stories, road maps and use cases with us at last week's OpenShift Commons Gathering at Red Hat Summit.
