You know the drill. It’s one of the great things about the OpenStack Summit. Unlike most other conferences, where organizers single-handedly set the agenda based on what they think you want to hear, the OpenStack Summit agenda is based on what you actually want to hear.
Curious about containers? Intrigued by NFV? Wondering what’s next on the Neutron roadmap? Tell them with your votes. Go to the OpenStack Foundation page and choose the sessions that are most interesting to you. It’s easy, it’s fun, and there is no limit to how many sessions you can vote for.*
But here’s the catch: The Foundation received more than 1,200 talk submissions this time. 1,200!!!
Do you have time to read through them all?
Of course not.
You’ll vote for your friends, for yourself if you submitted anything, and then you may browse a few other talks, but that’s it. It’s just too much to wade through. Bottom line: You’ll vote for the sessions you’ve heard about that coincide with your interests.
So before you visit the website and voting fatigue starts setting in, I want to be sure you’ve heard about the talks submitted by the OpenStack experts here at Cisco.
There are 49 of them, and they’re all listed below, along with links to the corresponding Foundation voting pages so you can easily access abstracts and cast votes.
Thanks for taking a look. See you at the Summit!

*While I applaud the industrious, go-get-it attitude that might lead you to try to vote for a single session multiple times, don’t bother. The Foundation watches very closely for ballot-box stuffing, and will disqualify any votes that look like they were suspiciously cast.
