What’s going on in OpenStack? Learn About the Community Generated Roadmap!

The OpenStack community of projects is growing and evolving. To help all of us stay current, the Product Working Group creates a Community Generated Roadmap, with the help and support of the PTLs and the technical community. This condensed, simplified roadmap outlines the capabilities you can expect in the upcoming OpenStack releases based on directional guidance from various projects.  

 In this session we'll present our findings across the different projects in an effort to give users a glimpse into OpenStack's upcoming capabilities.  The roadmap presented will span multiple releases and strive to unify the future direction of the individual projects on a per release basis.  We’ll also provide an update on Product Management in our Community and how you can get involved and contribute!

What can I expect to learn?

Attendees will learn about the current OpenStack Community Roadmap and where to find the most current information on that provides additional details (ex. Design Series PTL interviews, future interview plans).
