We at VEXXHOST feel ecstatic to wrap up this edition of the OpenInfrasummit, Berlin 2022 and it was a special experience for more than one reason. The energy was really high to meet people from the community face to face. The very same people that you've collaborated with, learned from, or have inspired in the past and were limited to connecting with them via a screen.
The OpenInfra Summit witnessed a massive gathering over 3 days, more than 25 valuable keynotes, knowledge-sharing sessions and workshops. Numerous stakeholders supporting the open-source tools and platforms enabling networks, software and deployment, IT decision-makers, developers and representatives of companies added to the glitter of this face-to-face in-person interaction.
