Happy holidays, everyone! As promised, the OpenStack L.A. Meetups are back for 2017 and I’m making a concerted effort to make sure we have these monthly, regardless of my travel schedule. To that end, I have brought on a co-organizer for our group, Chet Burgess. Chet was one of the original members of the Metacloud team and will be helping me out, as needed, when I'm on the road. Hoping you'll have a chance to meet Chet at our first 2017 meetup!

For the January meetup, I'm thrilled to welcome a new presenter, Hart Hoover, to the group!

I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at this first OpenStack L.A. Meetup of 2017!

This will include giving you an understanding of what Heat is, an overview of how to use it, key terminology, and template language concepts.
