The OpenStack Summit will be held in Boston, May 8-11, 2017, at the Hynes Convention Center and surrounding hotels.
The world runs on open infrastructure. At the OpenStack Summit, you’ll learn about the mix of open technologies building the modern infrastructure stack, including OpenStack, Kubernetes, Docker, Ansible, Ceph, OVS, OpenContrail, OPNFV, and more. Whether you are pursuing a private, public or multi-cloud approach, the OpenStack Summit is the place to network, skill up and plan your cloud strategy.
Hear business cases and operational experience directly from users, learn about new products in the ecosystem and participate in hands-on workshops to build your skills. Attended by thousands of people from more than 60 countries, it’s the ideal venue to plan your cloud strategy and share knowledge about architecting and operating OpenStack clouds.
The Summit will run for 4 days, Monday - Thursday, May 8-11, 2017:
- Comprised of presentations, panels, workshops, and educational opportunities through OpenStack Academy.
- Topics span cloud strategy and business case development to operational best practices and technical deep dives.

WHAT HAPPENED TO "ATC" DISCOUNT PASSES?
In the past, the OpenStack Foundation distributed discounted Summit passes to a subset of upstream contributors (not all ATCs) who contributed in the last six months, so that they could more easily attend the Summit. Now that the new Project Teams Gathering (PTG) event exists, anyone who physically attends the Project Teams Gathering will receive a $600-off discount code to attend the following Summit. Therefore anyone who attends the February 2017 PTG event will receive a discount code to register for the May 2017 Summit in Boston. No “ATC” codes will be distributed for the Boston Summit.
