RSVP Required: Command Presence Workshop presented by the Women of OpenStack
Limited Capacity seats available

RSVP here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1fj7V0nLh7UBvj7I7htWLz63ygdk4vRDkU2DqB-t1TQo/edit?usp=sharing

Capacity: 30

Target audience: Technical Women who regularly attend technical meetings [Working Groups] and would like to develop and “command their presence” in high pressure meetings. 

Workshop Background 
The Command Presence Workshop (CPW) has been recognized by Anita Borg Institute and Harvard Business Review. It is intended to teach participants how to handle “senior-level high pressure meetings”. The majority of the workshop is a task-force convened to address a simulated, but very realistic crisis event. In the class, each participant assumes a role, and is given about 30minutes to prepare 1-2 slides. Once the class has prepared, the simulation begins. There is a role-play simulations. It is not uncommon to hear occasional “gasps” of disbelief from the participants. The workshop participants will thus experience rapid-fire questioning, interruption, and other situations that occur in senior-level meetings, but in a safe environment conducive to learning techniques for handling such situations.

Let's Talk About the Diversity of Our Community
In Vancouver the OpenStack Board chartered a work group to explore and foster a diverse OpenStack Community. The basis for this is the belief that enlisting the broadest set of viewpoints and experience will enable us to create the most innovative and impactful technologies in support of the OpenStack Mission.

A broad set of community members formed the Diversity Work Group that has worked over the Liberty cycle to form a framework for a diverse community through the creation of a Diversity Policy, integrated Diversity expectations into our Code of Conducts and identified initial areas of focus for extending the diversity of our community. Please come join us to discuss the team’s work and shape the future direction.

These changes will immediately impact:

  • Distribution providers

  • Deployers

  • Version Numbering

  • The future of stable branches

  • Release cycles

Let's Talk Roadmaps - OpenStack Style
The OpenStack Tent is big and as an OpenStack Operator, Vendor or Contributor it can be a challenge to know what’s going on in each ring.  Help is on the way! The OpenStack Product Work Group strives to work across our community to create a condensed, simplified set of roadmaps of the capabilities you can expect in the upcoming project releases. 

In this session we'll present our findings across the different projects in an effort to give users a glimpse into OpenStack's upcoming capabilities.  The roadmaps presented will span multiple releases and strive to unify the future direction of the individual projects on a per release basis.  This session had over 800 RSVPs at the last summit so please show up early!

It Takes a Community: Interoperable Networking In OpenStack via DefCore
Would you like to be able to move applications seamlessly between OpenStack Powered clouds?  Sure you would—but today, that’s hard.  One of the trickiest aspects of interoperability today is the network stack: OpenStack has multiple networking API’s available that can’t be deployed together, making it difficult to create an interoperable standard.  Without an interoperable standard, applications become a tangle of if/else loops to account for the different possible networking capabilities of various public clouds, appliances, distributions, and managed offerings--and it’s difficult to determine which products support which networking options at all.  Interoperability by if/else loop isn’t really interoperability at all.

The OpenStack community is responding to the challenge of creating an interoperable standard between OpenStack Powered products via the work of the DefCore Committee.  The DefCore Guidelines seek to define core in such a way that OpenStack Powered products can be verifiably tested for adherence to an interoperability standard and consumers can make informed decisions about what they deploy and how they write their applications.  But the DefCore Committe can't operate in a vacume: solving interoperability in networking requires the help of the technical community, the Board of Directors, the DefCore Committee, vendors, and operators.

In this talk, members of the Nova and Neutron technical communities and the DefCore Committee will discuss the history of networking in OpenStack, take the current temperature of OpenStack's networking stacks, and discuss how the DefCore Committee, technical community, and Board of Directors are working together to solve the interoperability problem.  We’ll explain what’s being proposed for the next DefCore Guideline and how we as a community got there.  Attendees will learn about the impact on operators and vendors and leave with an understanding of what to expect of OpenStack Powered (TM) products that meet interoperable networking standards in the future.  We’ll also discuss the feedback that’s been generated so far from operators, vendors, and developers and discuss the future of interoperable networking in OpenStack.

The Numbers of the Open Cloud (Tokyo Edition)
The talk will present a quantitative analysis of the projects producing the main free, open source software cloud platforms: OpenStack, Apache CloudStack, OpenNebula and Eucalyptus. The analysis will focus on the communities behind those projects, their main development parameters, and the trends that can be observed.

Understanding the inner life of free / open source software projects is of fundamental importance to developers, users and decision makers. This talk will help to understand what's happening behind the curtains in the most relevant open cloud platforms, by analyzing the rich data obtained from their developing repositories.

The talk will cover, for the four analyzed projects, the following topics:

* How open is their development model, and to which extent they provide access to their development data.
Some parameters related to the overall activity and effort put into the development and maintenance of their products.
* The main characteristics of their development community: size, diversity, engagement, attraction, etc.
* The main parameters characterizing their performance, such as time-to-fix tickets or time-to-review patches.
* Some visualizations of the most relevant aspects.

A bonus track with novel information providing insight on the OpenStack community will have a slot in the presentation.

All the tools used to produce the analysis presented in this talk are free, open source software, based on the Grimoire technology, http://vizgrimoire.github.io. The talk will also provide some hints on how to reproduce the study, on these or other projects.

Illustrative example of the kind of information that will be presented: OpenStack Grimoire Dashboard, http://activity.openstack.org/
