OpenStack Conference / Design Summit 2011 Sponsored by Citrix

The time has finally come to reveal the agenda for the conference portion of next month’s OpenStack Conference / Design Summit 2011 sponsored by Citrix. The Design Summit agenda is still in active development and will be finalized once the Project Team Leader elections are complete and the new team members are able to offer input into the schedule. Please remember that I reserve the right to make any changes to this agenda; however I am confident that we are past the 95% complete mark. Register for this event here.

Thanks to the program committee for their great work in helping to create this agenda.
