See the OpenInfra Community Back in Berlin!

A tribute to the OpenInfra community.


Remember 2018, when we were still the OpenStack Foundation and we hosted the #OpenStackSummit in Berlin? A lot has changed since then. It has been a while since we have seen the community, and it’s been even longer since the community has been together in Berlin.

Ready to see the community back in Berlin? Register for the OpenInfra Summit (June 7-9, 2022)! The schedule for the OpenInfra Summit gives you a good idea of what to expect, but what made the last Summit in Berlin so special were all the unscheduled moments. So put on your favorite throwback song and let’s take a moment to reminisce some of the best moments from Berlin 2018 ?

In 2018, we announced the name change to the Open Infrastructure Summit, and since we have shortened it even more to the OpenInfra Summit!
