It is exciting times for the Gerrit Code Review project, which is approaching its 10th anniversary. The very first commit is dated 14th of November 2008, exactly ten years back from the official kick-off the 15th of November 2018 of the Gerrit User Summit 2018 in Palo Alto

An exciting schedule with talks about new features
The program is now complete and includes a lot of interesting talks about what’s new and noteworthy in Gerrit:
- Gerrit v2.16, 3.0 and beyond
- Support for ElasticSearch starting from v2.14
- Support for multi-master and multi-site
There are as well very interesting use-cases of using Gerrit in real-life scenarios:
- The success story of the migration of GerritHub to v2.15 and NoteDb
- Intel’s migration from Gerrit v2.7 to v2.14 and the associated lessons learned
- How to integrate Gerrit with the DevSecOps pipeline
The summit is kindly hosted by Cloudera, the world’s leader of the BigData OpenSource Platform. It is not a coincidence that there are talks about Gerrit and the DevOps Analytics:
- GerritForge and the approach to the DevOps Analytics on Gerrit
- McGill University with the BLIMP Tracer
Recordings of the Gerrit User Summit 2017 in London
The best way to get ready to the Summit this year is to watch what happened during the past 12 months, compared to what was announced at the Gerrit User Summit held at Skills Matter in Central London back in 2017, leveraging all the free content available on the GerritForge TV YouTube Channel. There is a lot to learn about Gerrit and its related technologies.
All the talks are now live, including the very interesting board discussion between the European members of the Gerrit Code Review community and the Maintainers of the project.
Don’t miss the dates, 15-16 November
2018 is an exceptional year for the Gerrit Community, and this Summit will most likely be the largest ever in the history of the Git Together and Gerrit User Summits of the past ten years.
Have a safe trip and see you soon see you at Cloudera HQ in Palo Alto Palo Alto.
