LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen Comes to China for the First Time in 2017

The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit advancing professional open source management for mass collaboration, today announced that LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen is coming to China for the first time, June 19-20, 2017 at the China National Convention Center in Beijing.

LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen (LC3) is designed to enable attendees to collaborate, share information and learn about the newest and most interesting open source technologies, including Linux, containers, cloud technologies, networking, microservices and more. The events also provide insight into how to navigate and lead in the open source community.

LinuxCon is where the leading maintainers, developers and project leads in the Linux community and from around the world gather together for updates, education, collaboration and problem-solving to further the Linux ecosystem. ContainerCon is the place to learn how to best take advantage of container technology, which is revolutionizing the way we automate, deploy and scale workloads; from hardware virtualization to storage to software defined networking, containers are helping to drive a cloud native approach. CloudOpen gathers top professionals to discuss cloud platforms, automation and management tools, DevOps, virtualization, software-defined networking, storage and filesystems, Big Data tools and platforms, open source best practices, and much more. LC3 will cover many of the hottest topics in open source, including open networking, Blockchain, compliance issues and the business and professionalization of open source.

Attendees will have access to the content of all three events with one registration. Activities will include 70+ educational sessions, keynotes from industry leaders, an exhibit hall for demonstrations and networking, hackathons, social events and more.

"Chinese developers and businesses have strongly embraced open source and are contributing significant amounts of code to a wide variety of projects," said Linux Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin. "We have heard the call to bring more open source events to China, and after the success of other Linux Foundation events in the country, such as MesosCon Asia and Cloud Foundry Summit Asia, we have decided to offer our flagship LinuxCon, ContainerCon and CloudOpen events in China as well. These events will help spread open source further, and increase collaboration and sharing between open source professionals around the world."

Speaking proposals are being accepted through March 18 at Registration for the event will be open in the coming weeks.

These events are made possible thanks to Strategic Sponsor Huawei and Diamond Sponsor Intel.
