With a community that rivals any other open source project in history, OpenStack has achieved extraordinary things very quickly. The project had attracted almost as many contributing companies in its 84th week as Linux had in its 828th week. As buzz and participation continues on this rapid trajectory, the large community has presented challenges along with incredible benefits. Joshua McKenty, one of OpenStack’s founders at NASA and a driving force behind its continued success, will explore lessons learned from creating a culture and common consensus among a global and continually expanding open source community and how the cloud framework continues to evolve to meet new challenges.

In this presentation, designed for all levels of technical expertise, participants can expect a lively, interactive presentation and insider’s view into the much buzzed about OpenStack community.
