OpenStack at EuropPython 2013

July 5th, 2013 — 6:52am

OpenStack was well represented at the EuropPython conference in Florence this year. We had a full-day OpenStack track on Tuesday and number of related talks spread across the week. Furthermore, 3 platinum members of the OpenStack Foundation — HP, Rackspace and Red Hat — sponsored the event.

The OpenStack track consisted of 4 talks in the morning and a hands-on training session in the afternoon. Over 800 Pythonistas had the chance to hear about the OpenStack project and community as well as Swift and Marconi. There are recordings of the sessions on the official Europython YouTube channel:

The training session combined talks and exercises allowing 40 Python hackers to try out an OpenStack cloud and gain practical knowledge with Nova, Swift and Keystone.

The OpenStack booth drew a lot of interest and the OpenStack t-shirts were a big hit. The OpenStack volunteers were also busy keeping the job board on topic and explaining that the postings are specific to OpenStack: it seems hard to believe that there are so many open positions on one single Python project.

OpenStack at EuroPython 2013 among Reinassance masterpieces

If you ever wanted the chance to learn about OpenStack and see the masterpieces by Michelangelo, Brunelleschi, Leonardo, Ghiberti and so many others your best chance is to join us at Europython 2013. Hosted in Firenze July 1-7, Europython 2013 will see a massive OpenStack-related presence, including one half day training session to get started. The OpenStack Foundation will have a booth there and most likely a Help Desk session, where people interested can reserve time to talk to OpenStack experts in real life, under the Tuscan sun.

The OpenStack tracks are concentrated on Tuesday morning and the training session in the afternoon. The complete schedule for the Help Desk session will be announced later.

If you don’t have your ticket yet, please hurry up and get one register. If you think you can help, please yourself to the list of volunteers for the event.
