The OpenStack project was launched by Rackspace and NASA in July 2010. Since then it has gained considerable momentum, with over 200 companies joining the project.

Horizon is OpenStack’s web-based user interface. It is constructed in two parts: 1) a core set of libraries for implementing a dashboard; 2) a reference dashboard implementation that uses the core set of libraries. Customization is key to the Horizon framework. It allows developers to construct their own dashboards, panel groups, and panels, and assemble them via a common navigation/presentation framework.

In this presentation, David will provide a brief introduction to OpenStack and Horizon. Then he will review Horizon’s architecture, explain how it integrates with other OpenStack services, examine its most interesting features, and describe how to start developing with it.
