Cast Your Ballot Now For OpenStack Summit Atlanta Presentations

Every year, hundreds of developers, users and administrators of OpenStack apply to speak at the annual OpenStack Summit, which takes place May 12 through May 16 this year in Atlanta.

In the true spirit of “open,” the conference agenda is determined by the OpenStack community in a public vote.

This year, Rackspace specialists submitted more than 70 speaking proposals with topics ranging from getting started with OpenStack and federated identity, to unicorns and the search for the cloud’s elusive “God” particle.
