voting for openstack summit austin


Hey Fellow OpenStackers! It’s that time again: The OpenStack Summit Track Chairs have opened up the voting process for the community to let their content preferences be heard. Voting closes on Wednesday, February 17 at 11:59PM PST (Thursday, February 18 at 7:59 UTC).

The session votes are critical for the chairs to understand the content that Summit attendees would like to see. Interested in networking? Vote for the Neutron-centric sessions. Interested in orchestration? Vote for Heat-centric sessions! and so on…

The OpenStack Summit Vote for Presentations site displays a random session when you first visit it, and from there, you can search for the session content you would like to see. As you read the session content, you can provide a score ranging from 3 (WOULD LOVE TO SEE!)  to 0 (WOULD NOT SEE).

The following list comprises the various submission from VMware customers, partners, and staff. If any of our sessions resonate with your interests, please give us a vote (3 preferably! 🙂 ). We look forward to catching up with all of you in Austin from April 25-29!
