As usual the community decides what content makes the stage and our colleagues have submitted their suggestions. Now it’s your turn, check out our submissions below and upvote them if you’d like to learn about GDPR, The Passport Program, Acquiring skills, OpenStack Security and Kubernetes on OpenStack.

But the community didn’t stop there… If these submissions don’t appeal to you, have a look at some of the 873 other submissions and help make the OpenStack Summit in Vancouver a fantastic experience for everyone involved.

DEADLINE: SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 25 AT 23:59 PM PST / MONDAY, FEBRUARY 26 AT 07:59 AM UTC

Practical OpenStack Security with OpenStack-Ansible and ansible-hardening

Presenters:
Florian Haas, VP of Professional Services & Education, City Network
Major Hayden, Principal Architect, Rackspace

Track: Private & Hybrid Cloud

What you will learn

  • You will get a brief introduction to OpenStack-Ansible (although prior knowledge of OpenStack-Ansible does not hurt, it is not a strict prerequisite for getting the most out of this workshop)
  • You will understand the purpose of the STIG as it applies to OpenStack.
  • You will learn to apply ansible-hardening for the purposes of both hardening your systems, and of auditing the current system hardening state.
  • We will also touch upon applying ansible-hardening to systems that are not part of an OpenStack server infrastructure (including, as it happens, OpenStack guest systems).

Kubernetes on OpenStack: There’s More Than One Way To Do It

Presenter: Florian Haas, VP of Professional Services & Education, City Network

Track: Open Source Community

What you will learn

Attendees should expect to be introduced, in a neutral and unbiased fashion, to several options available to them for deploying Kubernetes to an OpenStack environment. Attendees will learn that no one currently available mode of Kubernetes deployment is outstandingly superior over all others, and that several parameters exist along which they can make an informed decision on selecting a Kubernetes deployment option. Hopefully, the information provided in this session will facilitate such a decision.
