Migrating from Amazon AWS to OpenStack - Steve Curry, Metacloud
Companies large and small are enjoying the agility and ease of use provided by the public cloud. But these benefits do come with drawbacks, and the biggest may be cost. For both large enterprises and SMEs, the public cloud can be startlingly expensive at scale. For companies experiencing rapid growth, every day they grow their usage of public cloud resources brings them one day closer to a call from the CFO regarding another rapid growth...operating expense.

In this presentation Steve Curry will go over a case study featuring a rapidly growing and large consumer of Amazon AWS who was feeling the pain and costs associated with running entirely in the public cloud. This customer found not only found economies of scale in an OpenStack-based private cloud, but also feature parity, ease of use, and self-provisioning capabilities that made the value of on premise private cloud clear.

Hacking OpenStack for Padawans - Adolfo Brandes, Hastexo
This is where you'll learn how to hack OpenStack itself. You'll start by firing up your own OpenStack development environment, go on to modify OpenStack itself, and end the session learning how to contribute your modification back to the project. Sounds like a lot? That's because it is!

Part I. Setup: You'll get a set of ready-to-use VirtualBox appliances as well as instructions on how to set them up on your machine. At the end of this initial part of the session you should have everything you need to start hacking!

Part II. Hacking: During this section you'll see how to set up an environment for comfortable OpenStack hacking, modify a small part of OpenStack, and finally run and test the modification.

Part III. Contribution: Armed with your patch, during this section you'll step through the process of submitting it to the OpenStack community for review.
