In October, RDO had a small presence at the Open Source Summit (formerly known as LinuxCon) in Prague, Czechia.

While this event does not traditionally draw a big OpenStack audience, we were treated to a great talk by Monty Taylor on Zuul, and Fatih Degirmenci gave an interesting talk on cross-community CI, in which he discussed the joint work between the OpenStack and OpenDaylight communities to help one another verify cross-project functionality.

This event is always a great place to interact with other open source enthusiasts. While, in the past, it was very Linux-centric, the event this year had a rather broader scope, and so drew people from many more communities.

Upcoming Open Source Summits will be held in Japan (June 20-22, 2018), Vancouver (August 29-31, 2018) and Edinburgh (October 22-24, 2018), and we expect to have a presence of some kind at each of these events.
