What to Expect

Get Inspired by the Keynotes

Kick off the Summit by joining thousands of community members to witness open infrastructure in action: hear project updates from technical leaders, learn how operators are running open infrastructure in production, and brace yourself for the live demos. The keynotes will set you up to understand the open infrastructure vision, trends and latest news, so you can be prepared to have a successful Summit week.
