OCP US Summit 17

OCP U.S. Summit 2017 was held on 8-9 March 2017 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California, This year's summit had 62 sponsors and over 2800 registered attendees which represented over XX companies from XX countries. If you were unable to attend OCP U.S. Summit 2017 below are links to the Keynote and Main Stage Talks, Executive Tracks Sessions, Expo Hall Sessions. Noticeably missing this year was live streaming and remote participation for the Engineering Workshops; however, as you can see below we and new to this year's summit are the professional recordings of the Engineering Workshops as well. Where possible we have also added links to the slides. (Please note: If slide links are not listed with the sessions then we were not given those decks and you'll need to reach out to those speakers.)

Day 1 - 8 March 2017

Main Stage - Keynotes

This year our main stage line up was filled more spec and product announcements than one rack or rather rack type could hold, but we will discuss that later in this post.

In his presentations he included a thank you to the OCP Summit Sponsors, a shout out to our now 198 tiered member organizations as well as hinted to the upcoming announcements that the audience would here about throughout the morning keynote and main stage presentations from our sponsors. Taylor also highlighted the new OCP product portal ("Buy OCP") that the Foundation, community leadership and contributing organizations are working to populate.
