It's a busy time of the year for OpenStack, with the Juno release just out the door and planning for the upcoming release Kilo already underway. In celebration of new release and the OpenStack Summit in Paris on November 3-7, Opensource.com is featuring a number of interviews with key speakers at the event.
We're excited about the lineup of speakers. From developers to end users, project leads to foundation staff, there are so many good sessions to look forward to that there will be many hard choices to make for anyone trying to attend when sessions overlap. We hope that if you're not able to make it to the Paris Summit, or do attend but miss a sesion or two you wish you could attend, that we can help fill you in with the details of what's happening and where things are headed.
