Univention Summit 2017 – January 26, in Bremen

The Univention Summit 2017 – Where the Open Source Scene Comes Together

300 IT professionals from system houses, cloud service providers, and software developers met Open Source users for networking opportunities and knowledge transfer.

As usual, the Univention Summit was used as a platform for finding out more about the latest trends in IT, discovering Open Source solutions, learning from best practice examples, and simply conversing with like-minded individuals and colleagues.

Dynamic keynote speeches, user and partner presentations, technical and strategic workshops, plus a relaxing evening get-together at the Universum Science Center with a science spectacle and dinner made the summit the perfect place for Open Source enthusiasts to come together.
