LinuxCon, ContainerCon, CloudOpen and the new Open Community Conference combine under one umbrella name in 2017 - Open Source Summit. Four events in one, Open Source Summit is a technical conference where 2,000+ developers, operators and community leadership professionals convene to collaborate, share information and learn about the latest in open technologies, including Linux, containers, cloud computing and more.

At the Open Source Summit, you can expect to collaborate, share information and learn across a wide variety of topics.

There's simply no other event where the leading maintainers, developers and project leads in the Linux community and from around the world gather together for updates, education, collaboration and problem-solving to further the Linux ecosystem. Prepare to learn from the best and the brightest as we gather them together under one roof to deliver cutting edge presentations and demos, but it’s not just about the content, it’s about all of us getting together for lively discussions and collaboration on a wide variety of Linux topics.  If Linux is your job, this is an event you can't afford to miss.   

Containers are revolutionizing the way we automate, deploy and scale workloads, and this event is the place to learn about how to best use these technologies to your advantage. From hardware virtualization to storage to software defined networking, containers are helping to drive a cloud native approach. We bring together leading experts in both the development and operations community to share ideas and best practices for how containers are shaping computing today and in the future with a focus on DevOps culture, automation, portability and efficiency. Our goal is to bring companies on the leading edge together with users and developers to continue to innovate on the delivery of open source infrastructure.

This is the only event providing space for education and collaboration designed specifically to advance the open cloud. It is a conference celebrating and gathering together the open source projects, products, technologies, and companies that comprise the cloud and are driving the cloud, big data and networking ecosystems of today and tomorrow. We gather the top professionals to discuss cloud platforms, automation and management tools, DevOps, virtualization, containers, software-defined networking, storage & filesystems, big data tools and platforms, open source best practices, and much more.
