OpenStack: A python based IaaS provider

OpenStack: A python based IaaS provider

OpenStack is an IaaS provider software written in Python. As such, it provides a massive scalable operating system and services like: Image, Storage, Object, Compute, etc.

This talks aims to give the audience an overview about OpenStack, its capabilities, its modules, coding styles, workflow and organization.

As a successful community driven development case, it’s definitely a good reference for anyone willing to take that road or maybe joining existing projects.
