The OpenStack Summit started in San Diego today. Mark Collier announced during the kickoff meeting that there are over 1,300 people registered at the conference. As a result, lines for lunch were a bit slower than we wished. We’re coordinating solutions with the hotel to improve the situation. There will be also more power strips in the Developer’s Lounge area.
Lots of announcements today: Niki Acosta made a summary of all announcements for this first day. Worth mentioning also that Nimbula joined OpenStack.
Quantum's room was full all day, overcrowded some time.
The notes for each of the Design Summit’s sessions are listed below (note: there might be more etherpad listed on the official wiki page).

If you can’t make it to San Diego but you still want to participate in the sessions that will shape the future roadmap of OpenStack ‘Grizzly’ you can join the live audio streaming events on Webex. Kindly donated by Cisco Webex team (users of OpenStack themselves), the Webex session will run for the whole day from 9:30am to 6:00pm for each of the rooms Emma AB, Emma C, Windsor BC, Annie AB where the Design Summit will happen. Webex will be used to stream the audio of all conversations in the room where there will be enough microphones: remote participants will use the Webex chat to ask questions and people in the rooms will see the chat stream on one of the two projectors in each room.
The sessions are ready for you to register, they’re identified by topic (Nova, Quantum, Cinder, Documentation, Common, Process, Swift):
Also, each entry on the official schedule of the Design Summit has a link to its proper Webex audio streaming session. There will also be a live video streaming for the general sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday. Keep an eye on the website and twitter for details.
Known issue: Webex doesn’t support Java 64bit on Linux. If you try to join the voip conference Webex will complain that “The Audio Device is Unaccessible Now”. The most common workaround is to install 32bit Java environment alongside the 64bit one.
