So I have been to Berlin this week, for the Openshift Commons Gathering and Kubecon, and of course to meet a few Berliners.
Openshift is Redhats distribution of Google Kubernetes, plus their own enhancements. It is available on your own machines as Openshift Origin (the GPL version) or OCP (Open Container Project). Redhat also operates dedicated and public clouds based on this. The Openshift Commons Gathering is a meeting of the Openshift Users Community, Commons.
Commons was a nice and fine gathering in the basement level of the BCC, a single track event with a nice mix of users reporting back their experience with Kubernetes and Openshift. In fact, Commons already had quite a bit of the content later duplicated in Kubecon, but in a smaller and less noisy setting.
