A panel entitled "Upstream This!" will be moderated by The New Stack's Alex Williams and will include Google's Craig McCluckie, CoreOS's Brandon Philips, Microsoft's Brendan Burns and Red Hat's Clayton Coleman. The panel will give the attendees a unique opportunity for Q & A with the leaders of key Cloud Native open source projects and gain unique perspectives on how their respective projects augment the OpenShift Container platform. In addition, Google's Kelsey Hightower will be giving a talk on the State of the Container Ecosystem.
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with leading OpenShift and Kubernetes technologists from multiple open source upstream communities and are encouraged to stay and also attend the co-located KubeCon, CloudNativeCon and Prometheus Day on Nov 8-9.
We're bringing together experts from all over the world to discuss the container technologies, best practices for cloud native application developers and the open source software projects that underpin the OpenShift ecosystem to help take our ecosystem to the next level in cloud native computing.
