This session will introduce OpenStack and the different components that currently make up the project. There will be some focus on the compute and storage projects, describing how they work today and future development plans. There will also be some discussion on how it compares to other cloud platforms, how the open source community is structured around it, and what folks can do to get involved to help build a better cloud computing platform.
