With a flurry of applications, we had a difficult decision in front of us, deciding who would be our newest mentored contributors through the GNOME Outreach Program for Women.

Please welcome Laura, Anita and Victoria to the OpenStack community.
There’s a tremendous amount of talk about the shift in the networking business from hardware-bound networking to Software Defined Network. Mirantis’ Greg Elkinbard gives an overview of SDN in OpenStack world.
