Attendees can learn about and open infrastructure projects supported by the OSF including Airship, Kata Containers, OpenStack, StarlingX and Zuul as well as other projects in the open infrastructure ecosystem.

Host an OpenStack or Open Infra Day

Are you interested in hosting an OpenStack or Open Infra Day in your area?

First, check the upcoming events page.

  • If you don't find any events near you, reach out to [email protected] to see if there's a User Group in your area, and we'll help you get plugged in. OpenStack Days can require quite a bit of work to organize, so it’s ideal for User Group leaders to help organize them to collaborate across organizations and leverage existing local infrastructure, such as attendee lists and regular sponsors.

Next, review the event guidelines below.

  • OpenStack Days are non-commercial events and we expect them to run in accordance with the spirit of the community. This means making reasonable efforts to open the events to anyone in the community who wants to help organize, attend, or sponsor, regardless of affiliation. It also means avoiding sales pitches and focusing on visionary, educational and user-driven content.

The OpenStack Foundation helps support OpenStack and Open Infra Days with funding, content and promotion. Once you’ve reviewed the guidelines, please contact [email protected] to get started.
