Twice a year, the who's who of the Open Source world come together. The next big event is the OpenStack Summit in Boston, starting on May 8th, and it is sure to be exciting.
The community didn’t always have it easy: "When we started with OpenStack a few years ago, it was still very complicated and it took a long time for companies to see the value added," said Heidi Bretz, Director Business Development at the OpenStack Foundation at this year's CeBIT. However, this has changed quickly, as the list of participants for the OpenStack Summit clearly show. The 2017 Summit will take place in the US state of Massachusetts as of May 8th.
