On Tuesday, the OpenStack Foundation released the schedule for the upcoming summit in Paris, France. It's a monster of an agenda, featuring over 150 accepted talks and sessions, out of more than 1,100 proposed and voted on by community members.
Sessions are divided into 19 distinct categories to make them just a little bit more manageable. Topics include cloudfunding, community building, compute, enterprise IT strategies, hands-on labs, how to contribute, keynotes, networking, operations, planning your cloud, products, public and hybrid clouds, related open source projects, security, storage, sessions targeting applications, telecom strategies, and tools and services. We've given you some highlights of a few of the categories below. Which track are you most excited about?
How to contribute
Sessions focused on running active OpenStack environments are a two-day focus at the event, with talks on tuning OpenStack for performance and high availability, capacity management and provisioning, managing guest images, deployment testing, and more. You might not learn everything you need to know in order to manage the day-to-day operations of an open source cloud, but you'll be a lot closer than when you started.
Last, but certainly not least, there are two full days of user stories being shared at the Summit. Learn how enterprises are deploying OpenStack in the wild with sessions from a variety of end users, including software companies, banks, telcos, and more—even college basketball conferences.
