The OpenStack Summit is a four-day conference for developers, users, and administrators of OpenStack Cloud Software. It’s a great place to get started with OpenStack. Summits include in-depth technical discussions, hands-on workshops, and the full presence of almost every player in the OpenStack Ecosystem. If you are deploying OpenStack—or considering how it can help your enterprise—there’s no better way to connect with the community than the OpenStack Summit.

The OpenStack Summit is a global event no matter where it is located. The Summit has experienced tremendous growth since its inception, and we're proud of the diverse audience reached at each gathering. Here's a quick look at the audience who attended the Vancouver Summit in May 2015.

What's the difference between the OpenStack Main Conference and the Design Summit?

The OpenStack Main Conference is for all attendees and is held Tuesday - Thursday. The perfect place for developers, users, and administrators of OpenStack Cloud Software. This is great for those looking for the best way to get started.

The OpenStack Design Summit is designed for contributors and operators and is held Tuesday - Friday. The Design Summit sessions are collaborative working sessions where the community of OpenStack developers and operators come together twice annually to discuss the requirements for the next software release and connect with other community members.  The Design Summit is a part of the main OpenStack Summit but it is not a classic track with speakers and presentations. The Design Summit is not the right place to get started or learn the basics of OpenStack.

What’s the difference between the OpenStack Summit and an OpenStack Day event?

While the Summits are organized by the OpenStack Foundation, OpenStack Days are usually organized by community members from a local OpenStack user group and in the city that they are based in. OpenStack days are aimed for a smaller audience while recent Summits have continuously reached an attendance of at least 4,000 people. OpenStack Days are therefore altogether smaller, shorter events: they usually run for one or two days, feature up to three speaking tracks and engage a handful of sponsors. OpenStack Days are a great preview for what the Summits are like, but on a much smaller scale.
