Connect with the open infrastructure community near you.

Every year, thousands of Stackers connect in real life to share knowledge about open infrastructure at local meetups, OpenStack Days, the Summits and hackathons.

Start filling out your 2019 calendar at the events page or find your local folks on the OpenStack Foundation (OSF) Meetup page.

Right out of the gate in January, user groups from New Delhi to Munich are putting their heads together. You’ll also find community members answering questions from a booth at the fun-packed FOSDEM in Brussels, February 2-3. (For what to expect, check out our coverage here.) There are a host of spring events – consider checking out OpenInfraDays in London on April 1. It will cover all things cloud computing, from the latest developments in bare metal hardware infrastructure through to  scaling scientific computing workloads.

The next milestone: the first-ever Open Infrastructure Summit, taking place in April 29-May 1 in Denver.  Remember to plan your trip with an eye on the Project Teams Gathering (PTG) May 2-4, 2019, also in Denver. It’s an event for anyone who self-identifies as a member in a specific given project team as well as operators who are specialists on a given project and willing to spend their time giving feedback on their use case and contributing their usage experience to the project team. Wondering what it’s like when the “zoo” of OpenStack projects get together? Check out this write-up.

Then there’s an entire summer of global get-togethers that will be focusing on open infrastucture. (The calendar, much like the technology, is constantly evolving so keep an eye on that events page as it fills up for the year.)

Once you’ve saved the date, remember that Superuser is always interested in community content – get in touch at editorATopenstack.org and send us your write-ups (and photos!) of events. Articles posted are eligible for Active User Contributor (AUC) status.
