Last friday we had a full day workshop (Build A Cloud Day) in Ghent, Belgium. It was co-located with Puppet Camp. All the logistics was planned by our friends from Inuits led by Kris Buytaert (@KrisBuytaert). The BACD had approximately 50 people in attendance throughout the day, with things winding down by 4pm, when people started heading to Brussels for Europe's biggest Open Source event: FOSDEM. We had an exciting day with terrific speakers that showed the complete range of the CloudStack ecosystem. Here are all the slides, enjoy.
I started the day with an introduction talk about CloudStack, bringing some high level vision about Clouds and how CloudStack fits in. I also presented the "Apache Way", what you can expect in terms of releases, and I also highlighted the main components of CloudStack. I introduced the rest of the agenda with a theme of covering the entire "stack" of Cloud computing and seeing how CloudStack is the core backend of it.
