Yesterday I gave the seminal State of the Stack presentation at the OpenStack Summit. This is the 4th major iteration of the deck. This particular version took a very different direction for several reasons:
Most of the audience is well steeped in OpenStack and providing the normal “speeds and feeds” seemed pedantic
There were critical unaddressed issues in the community that I felt needed to be called out
It seemed to me that the situation was becoming more urgent and I needed to be more direct than usual (yes, that is possible…)
There are two forms you can consume this in: the slideshare and the YouTube video from the summit. I recommend the video first and then the Slideshare. The reason being, that with the video I provide a great deal of additional color, assuming you can keep up with my rapid fire delivery. Color in this case can be construed several different ways.
I hope you enjoy. If you do, please distribute widely via twitter, email, etc. :)
