Notes

I dated OpenStack back in 2013 and then we decided to get married in 2014 when I joined Rackspace.  OpenStack and I are still very sweet on each other since but, I have since decided to focus all my attention on automation (of course Ansible is my one and only choice :D) when I joined Red Hat.
Automation for Everyone!
