Project Update - Blazar

Join the Project Team Leader of Blazar and core contributors for a “project update” reflecting current developments in the Pike cycle and discussion of future development activity.

We dig into major issues and user needs, and how those needs can be addressed in current and future development. We also discuss hot topics from the Project Teams Gathering, and major development decisions agreed by the team.

Get an in-depth look at the top features and enhancements Blazar plans to deliver in the Pike release in August. Then look beyond Pike to the Queens and “R” releases to learn more about major development themes such as scalability, manageability, resiliency and user experience that the team intends to tackle in the long term.

Developers who are interested in contributing to this project are strongly encouraged to attend, as are users and product managers who want to know more about this project’s latest features, their value to users, and the development team’s roadmap.

Questions and discussion are encouraged from the audience, and this presentation will become part of OpenStack’s project navigator at
