Which event should you attend?

Everyone: If you are an OpenStack user, provider, researcher, or enthusiast, you'll want to attend the OpenStack Conference held April 19 & 20th. This is the main event and it includes keynotes, panel sessions, and vendor exhibitors who can help you get the most out of OpenStack.

Developers: If you are an active contributor in the OpenStack community, you should receive an email invitation to attend the Design Summit happening right before the conference (April 16-18th). The Design Summit is kept intentionally small so that we can have productive working sessions as we discuss and plan for development on the next release of OpenStack.
