OpenStack celebrates its 5th birthday July 19, and we’re celebrating with the entire OpenStack community during July! Cloud interoperability and support for developer productivity have been focuses for the OpenStack project this year, and none of it would be possible without the quickly growing OpenStack community.

There are now more than 80 global user groups and 27,300 community members, across 165 countries, spanning more than 500 organizations. Over 30 million lines of code have been written in less than five years thanks to our thriving community of developers and users around the world. This calls for a big toast to the OpenStack community members and our users.




We’ve invited all our user groups to celebrate with us. During the month of July, more than 35 OpenStack birthday parties will be thrown all over the world – celebrating the OpenStack community!  We encourage everyone to find a birthday party in your area and join your fellow community members to toast each other on another great year! If you don’t see a celebration in your area, not to worry – several more parties are to be announced soon. Don’t forget to share your pictures and memories using #OpenStack5Bday.

If you’re attending OSCON, the Foundation invites you to come celebrate the OpenStack Community on Tuesday, July 22nd at the LeftBank Annex to mingle with other community members and Foundation staff. Stay tuned – more details coming soon!
