About this event

Reposting this meetup because many of you said you had trouble registering. Please try again! :) This event is not to be missed! It will be even bigger and better than last year (and the 6 years before that)! And it will be the ONLY event of its kind in the United States this year.

What’s happening?

The SF Bay Cloud Native Open Infra user group (formerly SF Bay OpenStack), and the Out-of-the-Box Network Developer meetup group are teaming up again with 10 wonderful sponsors to provide an afternoon and evening of talks, training, and fun! Tracks and topics include Containers, NFV, SDN, Cloud Native Storage, IoT, ONAP Networking, and more! The 5pm keynote features Lew Tucker, Cisco CTO, on Istio and Service Mesh! And it’s all topped off with a fun birthday celebration that will include lightning talks (back by popular demand)!

Join us for a great 1/2 day event to celebrate our Cloud Native, Open Infrastructure community, and of course we’ll have our signature cupcakes for OpenStack’s 8th birthday! If you don't have time for the afternoon talks and labs, simply join us for the keynotes, or in the evening for the social, networking, Lightning Talks, and bday party! And don't miss the FOOD TRUCKS! We've really stepped it up this year! :)
