(Tutorial) OpenStack Tour de Force - Adolfo Brandes, Hastexo
Call us crazy, but here is where we stand up an OpenStack cloud, from scratch, in two hours. First presented at OSCON 2013 and running full throttle through the basics of OpenStack, this fast-paced tutorial will whirl through authentication, image storage, networking, and compute at breakneck speed. Not for the faint at heart.

A strong sysadmin or devops background is an excellent asset to bring along to this tutorial, but no prior knowledge of OpenStack is required. (If you do bring it to the table, though, it certainly won’t hurt.) Prior Puppet knowledge is also a plus, as this tutorial will use Puppet for automated deployment and configuration.

(Tutorial) High Availability Solutions for MySQL and MariaDB - Max Mether, MySQL AB
Achieving High Availability with MySQL is a tricky thing; there are almost as many recipes as there are cooks out there. This talk will go through the most common solutions for achieving HA with MySQL and list the pros and cons for each of them. The solutions include standard replication, MariaDB multi-source replication, MHA, Continuent Tungsten, Galera, shared-disk based solutions and MySQL Cluster

This talk is aimed towards MySQL DBAs and Developers who are interested in setting up HA architecture for their data. After this talk they should have a clear overview of all the options available.

(Tutorial) Vagrant & CFEngine - Nick Anderson, CFEngine
During this hands-on tutorial you will learn how to quickly provision local test/development/demo environments using Vagrant and Virtualbox.  We will cover provisioning and configuring machines quickly using Vagrant and CFEngine. You will learn how Vagrant and Virtualbox can be used to bring up local development/test/demo environments. You will also learn how CFEngine can be leveraged to automate configuration of the environment after it has been initialized. You will take away a multi-vm test environment managed by CFEngine.

This tutorial targets technical people who need repeatable test environments and are comfortable using the Linux command-line. These environments can speed developer on-boarding, play a role in continuous integration, or just provide quick sandboxes for experimentation. No previous knowledge of Vagrant or CFEngine is required.

(Tutorial) Cross-Compiling Linux Kernels on x86_64: A Tutorial on How to Get Started - Shuah Khan, Samsung
The Linux Kernel is currently supported on over 30+ different hardware architectures. This is a huge benefit for Linux adoption on a wide range of deployments. However, the ability to build and test Linux kernels on all possible supported architectures requires having access to such test systems for each of these architectures which is not easy by any means. Therefore, the ability to cross-compile non-native architectures on an architecture that is widely supported such as the x86_64 helps address the building kernels part of the problem.

This talk will present the details of where to find cross-compilers packages for architectures, how to install them, and how to automate compile on each of these architectures on an x86 system. This talk will be of great benefit to any software developer trying to build and test Linux kernel on non-native hardware architecture.
