Chef for OpenStack Hack Day

AppFirst and Opscode would like to invite you to an all-day Hack Day for Chef for openStack. We'll be shacking up at FirstMark Capital's offices for the day. Doors open at 9AM and lunch will be provided by Opscode. From 10am - 5pm, we'll be hacking away on a number of things:

  • Chef Repository for deploying OpenStack
  • Documentation for Chef for OpenStack
  • Cookbooks
    • Keystone
    • Glance
    • Nova
    • Horizon
    • Swift
  • Knife Openstack


More info about Chef for OpenStack can be found below:


Our Meetup will be joined by Matt Ray, Senior Technical Evangelist at Opscode. He’ll be on hand to lend deep expertise and leadership during the hackathon.

RSVP now! There's a limited number of spots!!

    The over-view of the various Chef cookbooks needed to deploy OpenStack was very helpful. Even though it was slightly off-topic, the Chef 11 info was most valuable. My main criticism of the session was that it was advertised as a "hack day" but in reality it was more of an Q&A session. Overall I feel I now have a good idea of where to start with our own OpenStack deployment.
