Over the past 8 years, OpenStack has evolved from a small collaboration project between NASA and Rackspace into a massive, open source cloud orchestration system. It is now a common solution used by service providers, enterprises, government agencies and academic institutions to build and operate both public and private clouds. We will hear what value OpenStack provides and why it's popularity took off like a rocket.
Our presenter is Alex Meade, a technical instructor and independent DevOps consultant. He was a core contributor for five years early in the OpenStack project. Alex's recent work has been focused on DevOps, Docker containers, and the Google Cloud Platform. He currently does all of this while traveling and chasing the elusive work/life balance.
As usual, doors open at 17:30, presentation starts at 18:00 and event finishes at 19:30. The location is our regular spot at Xero in Parnell, make sure to use the address from Meetup here, not the address that Google sends you to.
