What is OpenShift Commons?

Commons builds connections and collaboration across OpenShift communities, projects, and stakeholders. In doing so we’ll enable the success of customers, users, partners, and contributors as we deepen our knowledge and experiences together.

Our goals go beyond code contributions. Commons is a place for companies using OpenShift to accelerate its success and adoption. To do this we’ll act as resources for each other, share best practices and provide a forum for peer-to-peer communication.

Join us in Berlin!
