OpenStack Community Weekly Newsletter (Mar 28 – Apr 4)

Participate in the OpenStack User Survey by April 11!

We’re kicking off the third round of the OpenStack User Survey this month! If you are an OpenStack user or have customers with OpenStack deployments, please take a few minutes to respond to our User Survey and pass it along to your network. The goals of the survey are to better define the OpenStack user community and requirements, facilitate engagement and communication among the user community, and uncover new use cases or OpenStack users who might be willing to tell their stories publicly.

OpenStack Summit – now with more Ops

A new addition to the busy times in Atlanta: people who run clouds have a place to congregate at the Summit and swap best practices, architectures, ideas and give feedback. The Ops Meetup will be the place for sessions designed to be full-room discussions: there will be no presenters and salient notes will be collaboratively recorded on Etherpads, just like in the Design Summit. Register for the OpenStack Summit, then turn up Monday and Friday to room B308 in Atlanta.

Call for Proposals Open Source @ OpenStack Summit

At this year’s OpenStack Summit we’re going to be offering space to Open Source projects that are important to the OpenStack community. We’re calling it Open Source @ OpenStack, and it’s an opportunity for these projects to hold small design summits with their community members. We’re impressed by the number of projects that have grown in the OpenStack ecosystem, and want to continue the practice we started with StackForge of fostering these projects. We have space and time available for half day sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday, both morning and afternoon. If you have a project that you think qualifies for this space, we invite you to submit a proposal for Open Source @ OpenStack.
