Christopher Aedo (http://www.linkedin.com/in/christopheraedo), Senior Director of Technology Operations at Morphlabs (http://www.morphlabs.com), will present on how Morphlabs uses Puppet (http://puppetlabs.com/solutions/openstack/) to deploy and manage OpenStack environments. Using Puppet to deploy OpenStack greatly reduces headaches, but the process isn’t perfect yet. Christopher will cover the parts that work really well, and the parts that suck donkey dong.

Coincidentally, September 27th marks the date for the next OpenStack release, code-named Folsom!
